Water Quality Report for 2014 available for review
The City of Napa’s most recent annual Drinking Water Quality Report has been posted in the Water Quality section of its web site, www.cityofnapa.org/water. The direct web address to access the document is www.cityofnapa.org/images/AQR.pdf. The 2014 report demonstrates that City water met all stringent State and Federal standards for contaminants. Additional report sections describe our source waters, the importance of protecting those sources, and specific water quality concerns some customers may have. (Please note that this report is for calendar year 2014 only. Follow this link for information on exceedances under Stage II of the Disinfection Byproduct Rule that occurred in 2015.) For customers without computer access, paper reports are available at the Water Division, 1340 Clay Street, and at the Public Works counter, 1600 First Street. Paper copies will also be mailed upon request by calling 707-257-9521. This is the third year the City has used an electronic distribution method for the report, saving resources and ratepayer funds while still communicating to customers that their tap water is healthy and safe.
