Safety of Treated Drinking Water

Remarkable advancements have been made in treatment technology, resulting in better, more cost-effective processes.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there are three key components to providing safe drinking water supplies and protecting public health:

  1. High-quality water source
  2. Water treatment to improve quality and provide disinfection
  3. Modern water distribution system that maintains high levels of water quality and disinfection

WDCWA offers the cities with a high-quality water source (the Sacramento River) as well as a water treatment facility designed to meet current and future potential regulations. The cities’ water distribution systems are maintained to deliver high-quality, treated and disinfected water from the WDCWA treatment facility.”
