CHELSEA- To keep residents informed with the most up-to-date information regarding the drinking water system, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) has begun mailing its Annual Water Quality Report to every household within its service area. The MWRA provides high quality water to over 3.2 million people in fifty-three municipalities in the eastern and central parts of the Commonwealth.

“To ensure residents, businesses, and other organizations continue to receive some of the best water in the world, our staff conduct hundreds of thousands of tests each year to safeguard our public water supply,” said Fred Laskey, MWRA Executive Director. “Our state-of-the-art surveillance system monitors your water every step of the way from the reservoir all the way to your kitchen tap. Significantly, the MWRA has once again met every federal and state standard to achieve high quality results.”

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 local water systems within the MWRA’s service area. The reports, including a Spanish language version, are available online and can be translated into dozens of languages. Larger-print versions are available upon request.

The report also highlights MWRA aggressive action to reduce the risk of lead in drinking water by partnering with municipalities throughout its service area. Since 2016, the Authority has provided $41 million in zero-interest loans to 17 communities, replacing thousands of lead service lines and safeguarding public health.
