Water customers in Los Alamos County should expect to receive a copy of the 2018 Drinking Water Quality Report from the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities by mail prior to July 1. The Annual Drinking Water Quality Report describes drinking water sources, testing conducted on the water, substances detected and other information of interest.
“We consider it a tremendous responsibility and honor to provide Los Alamos County with high-quality drinking water,” stated Utilities Manager Tim Glasco. “It is safe, clean and with constituent levels lower than what the federal and state drinking water health standards permit.”
Drinking water supplied by the DPU is regularly monitored to ensure compliance with standards established by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the New Mexico Environment Department’s Drinking Water Bureau. The report includes the water quality lab data collected from January 1 to December 31, 2018 and shows no violations.
A copy of the 2018 Drinking Water Quality Report is available online at http://ladpu.com/2018DrinkingWaterQuality. Citizens may also call or email the Customer Care Center at 505 662 8333 or CustomerCare@lacnm.us to obtain a copy.
