Water Quality and Test Results

WTA adds lime and chlorine to the town’s water supply to improve the water quality. In addition, we undertake regular testing to ensure that the quality of the water supplied to residents meets guidelines for drinking water.

Water samples are taken weekly and tested for bacteria including E-coli, Heterotrophic Plate Count, Total Coliforms and pH levels. In addition, annual samples are taken and tested for minerals and hardness. The data from recent test results can be found below.
