The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has begun mailing its Annual Water Quality Report to every household in its service area.
The report also ensures that the water system meets every federal and state drinking water standard.
"I hope residents will take a moment to read this report,” said Fred Laskey, MWRA’s Executive Director. “We have great confidence in the water we deliver to the homes and businesses in our service area, and we want our customers to have that same confidence. MWRA takes hundreds of thousands of tests each year and for 2021, we again met every federal and state drinking water standard. Test results for PFAS, the ‘forever chemicals’ that have recently been in the news, were well below state standards - no more than trace amounts were found.”
In 2021, MWRA‘s water was again named ‘Best of the Best’ in a national taste test conducted by the American Water Works Association.
The report is distributed to over 850,000 homes in the MWRA service area as required under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Community-specific inserts also provide information about municipal water systems about municipal water systems in the MWRA service area.
The reports, including a Spanish language version, are also available on-line and a larger-print version is available upon request.
