LIHU‘E — The county Department of Water’s 2023 Water Quality Reports, covering the period of Jan. 1, 2022 to Dec. 31, 2022, are now available on the DOW’s website at www.kauaiwater.org.
In accordance with The Safe Drinking Water Act, the DOW produces and provides customers with annual water quality reports by July 1.
“We are pleased to publish the comprehensive and data-driven water quality reports and show our commitment to delivering high-quality water service to our more than 24,000 customers,” said Joe Tait, DOW’s manager and chief engineer.
“Throughout the year, our personnel perform a significant volume of work designing capital projects, operating and maintaining infrastructure, managing customer service functions, and conducting water sampling on a continuous schedule to provide an important service for public health, fire protection, and to support our quality of life,” he said.
Water is tested regularly through the state Department of Health and DOW’s certified laboratories. DOW’s drinking water meets all the Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines for safe drinking water, and any contaminants found were well below the levels allowed by the EPA.
