Correction to the 2017 CCR
The 2017 CCR which was distributed to all of our customers in June 2018, contains a correction to the Secondary Drinking Water Standard where the table lists the chemical Zinc, a runoff/leaching from natural deposits; industrial wastes was detected at a level of 110 ug/L(ppb). The US EPA established the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for Zinc is 5000 ug/L(ppb) and the report was referenced as 5(ppb). The District detection level is not an MCL violation and is well below the MCL. The correction to the 2017 CCR report has been corrected and posted to the district website at www.cpud.org.
This correction is being made to keep our customers informed and to encourage you that the water supplied to your tap is safe and meets or exceeds all required standards.

What Does a CCR Represent?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency describes the Consumer Confidence Report obligations and components:
The Consumer Confidence Rule requires public water suppliers that serve the same people year round (community water systems) to provide consumer confidence reports (CCR) to their customers. These reports are also known as annual water quality reports or drinking water quality reports. The remaining public water systems in the U.S. are not required to provide CCRs, because they do not serve the same people on a day-to-day basis throughout the year. The CCR summarizes information regarding sources used (i.e., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, or aquifers) any detected contaminants, compliance and educational information. The reports are due to customers by July 1st of each year.
