Where the Water Supply Comes From?
Surface Water, which is susceptible to contamination directly entering the supply.
Ground Water, which is susceptible to contaminants that are present in the soil and the rock as the water makes its way to the aquifer.
Contaminants that Might be Present
Virus or bacteria from sewage, agriculture or wildlife
Rock or metal based, usually naturally occurring
Carbon based, usually industry by-product
Typically naturally occurring, but could be elevated by mining operations
Each chemical or contaminant that has a health risk and has the potential of being in the water supply is listed and monitored by your Municipality.
The average of all samples over the year, which is used to determine violations.
MCLG (Maximum Contaminant Level Goal)
Testing shows that below these levels there is no health impact.
Range of Detections
The actual span of recorded contaminant levels.
MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level)
Level set by the EPA that weights treatment cost vs. health impact.

These five data points are presented in a chart, graph or text on each Consumer Confidence Report for Water Quality. Sometimes they can be difficult to understand, so we have provided some insight to help with your interpretation of the data.
