Frederick Water Systems Meet, Exceed Federal Standards

Drinking water from all 13 of the water systems operated by Frederick County meet or exceed all State and Federal drinking water standards.

The Safe Drinking Water Act requires all community water systems to provide an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to its customers.  Among other things, the report lists the regulated contaminants found in drinking water, as well as health effects information related to violations of the drinking water standards. According to a County press release, drinking water from all 13 of the water systems operated by DWSU meet or exceed all State and Federal drinking water standards.

“Through the CCR, our residents can stay well informed about regulations that must be met in order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink” said DWSU Director Mark Schweitzer.  “Our staff work hard to ensure the drinking water they produce meets all State and Federal drinking water requirements.  We hope that customers will find these reports educational and helpful in answering questions they may have about the state of their water.”

For further information or questions about the content of the CCR, contact Regulatory Compliance Department Head Joshua Smith at 301-600-2581 or via e-mail at JSmith5@FrederickCountyMD.gov.
