Water Quality

The City of Fountain Water Department delivers approximately 5 million gallons of water per day to its customers. Water quality is monitored daily and samples are examined numerous times throughout the year to test water quality and contaminant levels. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act mandates that all water providers meet water standards established by Federal and State agencies.

Fountain circulates an annual Water Quality/Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to all of its residents in conjunction with posting at several public locations regarding water monitoring results per requirements established by the EPA. This report is designed to educate Fountain's residents about the quality of water and services being provided. The Report lists various tests completed by the Water Department related to contaminants, micro-biological contaminants, organic contaminants, non-regulated substances, and Fluoride.

Each year the report is published for the previous year in order to show yearly totals (i.e. 2016 data is produced and circulated to the public before July 2017).
