Water Customers to Get Report

A new Consumer Confidence Report will be mailed to Arlington County water customers this month giving the condition of the water supply during the previous year. The report is a requirement of an amendment to the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996. In the past year, Arlington County drinking water met all state and federal standards.

The complete report is also available on the Web at www.co.arlington.va.us/dpw/wss/arlington. htm. It also shows the results of tests and other water supply information. For additional information about Arlington's water, call 703-228-6578 (TDD 703-228-4611), e-mail psasse@co.arlington.va.us, or visit the county's Web site at www.co.arlington.va.us/dpw.
