Water Quality Reports

This is where we will present all completed Water Quality Reports.  We hope everyone finds the information contained helpful and reassuring that The Charter Township of Waterford is meeting and exceeding all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) water quality requirements.

As part of the finalized requirements for the 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act, the following Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR) are submitted by The Charter Township of Waterford Department of Public Works.

Arsenic has become a particular concern for some groundwater supplies throughout Oakland County.  Please see below for more information about the concerns of naturally occurring arsenic in ground water.
 

Arsenic Levels in Waterford Township

PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY SYSTEM

As part of meeting State and EPA guidelines for contaminants within potable drinking water, the Waterford Township Department of Public Works (DPW) analyzes all required Maximum Contaminant Level constituents on defined schedules established by the Michigan Department of Environmental Equality (MDEQ). The schedule describes the number of samples required, their frequency, an approximate due date, the test code and the sampling container to be used as well as chemical, bacteriological, radiological, and lead/copper sampling.

Once taken and analyzed, the results are sent to the MDEQ as part of the required reporting procedure. Any violations must be outlined along with an explanation as to retesting and/or remediation procedures.

In August 1998, Congress finalized language on the new Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) requirement as part of the 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act which will provide consumers more information on their drinking water and opportunities to get involved in protecting their source of water. It became effective in September of 1998.

As a result, the DPW will have to deliver an annual CCR report to our customers by July 1 each year. For those requiring more information, the CCR final rule can be found at EPA’s website.

Additionally, we would like to provide our customers with analysis results for Arsenic concentrations in our public water supply. These results are from samples taken between November and December of 2001. Current regulations call for our water supply not to exceed 10 Parts Per Billion (PPB) of Arsenic at each of our 11 treatment plant sites. We are very pleased to report that the recent results show that finished water (water you receive at your tap) Arsenic levels at each of the 11 treatment plants are below 5 PPB. In addition, the raw water (untreated) levels of Arsenic at each of the 13 wellhead locations average only 2.78 PPB.

We hope that you find this information helpful. If you have any questions or comments, please feel to contact the DPW at (248) 674-2278 extension 7462.
