Water Quality Meets or Exceeds Standards

(Santa Barbara, CA, June 7, 2019)

Montecito Water District’s 2018 Annual Drinking Water Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is now available online at montecitowater.com/doc/ccr2018

This report describes the District’s water sources, provides information on water quality and how it is measured, and presents the District’s 2018 test results which show that drinking water met, or was better than, state and federal water quality standards. The report also includes this message from General Manager Nick Turner:

“2018 was a year of challenges and opportunities for MWD, as it was for the entire community. When the rains came shortly after the Thomas Fire, and caused the January 9, 2018 debris flows, MWD’s infrastructure was severely impacted. Our disaster response was immediate, and included the issuance of a Boil Water Notice.

Water service was fully restored within 30 days, including all work needed to access, repair and disinfect our heavily damaged facilities. The MWD team, with tremendous support from mutual aid and neighboring agencies, did a remarkable job in extreme conditions.

While nothing could have prepared us for the unprecedented twin disasters, in completing the needed repairs we’ve utilized all available opportunities to upgrade infrastructure, thereby maximizing the resilience of MWD facilities.

The test results included in this report demonstrate that MWD’s water quality met or exceeded all state and federal standards in 2018. The Montecito and Summerland communities can be assured of MWD’s unwavering commitment to providing a reliable supply of high-quality water to our customers—under any circumstances.”

Landlords, businesses, schools and other groups are asked to share this information with tenants, students, and other water users who may not be customers receiving communications directly from Montecito Water District.
