Drinking water quality has been the focus of the local and national news lately. Though our drinking water customers are served by the Saginaw Water Treatment Plant, it is totally independent of the problematic water systems located elsewhere and enjoys reliable and safe drinking water because of the hard work of many dedicated professionals. Highly trained and certified staff works around the clock to deliver your water each day, with hundreds of laboratory tests completed daily just to make sure that your drinking water meets or surpasses all federal and state requirements.
Under the federal Clean Water Act, each public water system is to provide its customers with a Water Quality Report each year. The report shows specific water quality parameters and test results. To view the 2015 Water Quality Report, please click the link.
