Bell Gardens Consumer Confidence Report

When the U.S. Congress passed the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act amendments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was given the authority to require each community water system to provide their customers with an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).Community water systems in California have been producing water quality reports since 1990. The major feature of the right-to-know provisions of the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments, CCRs, provide information about source water, treatment and the results of required water quality monitoring. CCRs must be issued by July 1 every year.

Because of the level of detail required by the US Environmental Protection Agency, CCRs can be intimidating. There are several online sources that can help you understand the information and provide a context for the report:

The — USEPA’s web pages on CCRs provide background information and answers to frequently asked questions.

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has information on its consumer website about the elements of a CCR, compliance and cost.

NSF International has information online to help people understand their CCRs. The NSF International online resource also provides information about units of measurement, abbreviations and interpreting water quality data.
