MWRA Water Report is in the Mail

CCR Cover

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has begun mailing its Annual Water Quality Report to every household in its service area.

“MWRA takes hundreds of thousands of tests each year and for 2022, we again met every federal and state drinking water standard, said MWRA Executive Director, Fred Laskey. “PFAS - or ‘forever chemicals’ – are present in some drinking water. Because our source water is so well protected, our water meets the current state, and recently proposed federal, standards with levels so low they cannot be quantified. 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 also continues to take actions to reduce the risk of lead in drinking water. Since 2016, MWRA has provided $34 million in zero-interest loans to 14 communities to be used for full lead service line removals.

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 in the MWRA service area.

The reports, including a Spanish language version, are available on-line and can be translated into several languages. Larger-print versions are available upon request.
