Certified District water quality professionals monitor your water 24 hours per day. They conduct thousands of tests per year with the help of independent state-certified laboratories. The tests are conducted to extraordinary levels of accuracy: the most intensive test can detect one-hundredth of a part of a substance in a billion parts of water. That is equivalent to finding one drop of a substance in 170,000 gallons of water. Our drinking water meets or exceeds drinking water standards.

Dear Customer:

Better Than State and Federal Quality Standards
Once again, our water quality staff is pleased to report that our drinking water met or exceeded state and federal drinking water standards last year. Inside this newsletter you will find a detailed report on the results of thousands of water quality tests conducted by your Water District during 2000.

Top Quality Source Water
More than half of Montecito’s water comes from Lake Cachuma and is treated at the Cater Regional Treatment Plant in Santa Barbara. The remainder of Montecito’s water is from Jameson Lake, Fox and Alder Creeks and Doulton Tunnel, and is treated in our own state-of-the art treatment facilities. Montecito also owns groundwater wells, which are reserved for use during periods of high demand and drought.

We Are Here To Serve You
If you have questions about our water quality or this report, please contact Steve Hickox, Water Treatment and Production Superintendent, or myself at 969-2271.

Very truly yours,

Frederick J. Adjarian

General Manager
