Around here, the arrival of a new Drinking Water Quality Report is met with the same kind of enthusiasm that more normal people might reserve for, say, a new Hunger Games novel or some unpublished J.D. Salinger manuscripts. But even if the report isn't your idea of a page turner (and really, there are only 16 pages to turn), you're certain to learn some interesting facts about the water you drink every day. It's all here: Where your water comes from, how it's treated, what it contains and how PWD is protecting the rivers and streams that provide our drinking water.

Copies are being sent in the mail to every PWD customer, but you don't have to wait: Download it now. We're taking our copy to read on the beach this weekend.
