Water’s fine, district says

Las Virgenes Municipal Water District has released and mailed its 2016 Water Quality Report to homes and businesses in the district’s 122-square-mile service area.

The report is also available online at www.LVMWD.com.

The annual publication of test results reflects water-quality analyses conducted throughout 2016 and shows that the water delivered to LVMWD customers meets or surpasses state and federal drinking water standards, the district says.

“Tap water is among the most thoroughly tested products you purchase; it is monitored on an ongoing basis,” LVMWD general manager David Pedersen said.

Pedersen said the water district objects to some vendors who try to sell home treatment systems “by disparaging the quality of (LVMWD) tap water.”

The annual-water quality report is a state and federal requirement. Metropolitan Water District of Southern California joins local officials in performing water-quality tests at numerous locations in the service area throughout the year.
