VIDEO: TMWA Releases 2018 Water Quality Report



Every year Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) releases a Water Quality Report, as required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This report, which is based on data collected in the 2017 calendar year, contains information about the source of TMWA’s drinking water and how it compares to drinking water standards established by the EPA. In addition to the primary service territory, there are separate reports on the following utilities operated by TMWA: Lighting W, Old Washoe Estates, Stampmill, Sunrise Estates and Truckee Canyon.

“At TMWA, we take pride in the high-quality water delivered to our customers,” said General Manager Mark Foree. “The Water Quality Report is a welcome opportunity to show the stringent safety standards that our staff adheres to in ensuring high-quality water on a daily basis,” he added.

The Water Quality Report is now available online at www.tmwa.com/quality . If you would like a print copy mailed to you, please call Water Quality Senior Chemist Craig Moyle at (775) 834-8130 or email him at [email protected].  In addition, information by specific neighborhood is available by using TMWA’s online map-based reference tool which provides the latest water quality data by geographic location: visit www.tmwa.com/water-quality-lookup.

Delivering high-quality water involves constant testing to ensure the community’s water is safe. TMWA performs more than 1,000 laboratory tests every month on more than 180 samples taken from various locations throughout the TMWA distribution system. TMWA is dedicated to providing reliable service and delivering high-quality drinking water to more than 400,000 residents and businesses throughout the Reno and Sparks area.
