2003 Report on your Drinking Water - a message from your local water department
TOWN OF WATERTOWN
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS
Public Water Supply #: 3314000
Dear Water Consumer:
The MWRA and the Watertown Department of Public Works are pleased to bring you the annual water quality report to consumers on the quality of your drinking water.
The Town of Watertown purchases its water from the MWRA and supplies it to you through our distribution system. The Department of Public Works and the MWRA monitor the water supply to ensure that your water meets or surpasses every applicable federal, state or local standard.
Water quality is an increasing priority of the Department. Towards that end, we have dedicated a full time staff member to issues of water quality. Our programs and services are constantly being expanded and fine tuned.
Please read pages 5 and 6 for more information on lead and tap water. It is important to note that based on individual plumbing, actual lead counts will vary from home to home and from faucet to faucet. Should you have questions or concerns about the potential for lead counts in your own water, please contact the Department of Public Works at 617.972.6420.
Not only has the Department not been issued any Notices of Non-Compliance (NONs) but, it was issued a very favorable annual review by the Department of Environmental Protection at the time of its most recent evaluation.
The Department of Public Works is proud of our water supply, of our service, and of the staff that serves you. We will always do our very best to ensure the quality of your water and your water service.
If you require more information on particular topics or have specific questions, feel free to call us a 617.972.6420. The body of this report also contains contacts and phone numbers for the regional office of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, for the Safe Drinking Water Hotline, and for the MWRA.
Gerald S. Mee, Jr.,
Superintendent of Public Works
