Dear Customer:

Your Water Continues to Meet Stringent Standards

Our annual water quality report shows that your drinking water continues to meet or improve upon increasingly stringent state and federal quality standards. This report includes results of intensive testing conducted during 2002. We are proud of the results, which assure you of the high quality water that we deliver to you. Contained in the report are detailed test results and other water quality information.

Water Comes From Excellent Sources

Among our excellent sources of water is Lake Cachuma, which provides more than half our supply. Lake Cachuma water is treated at the regional Cater Water Treatment Plant in Santa Barbara. Jameson Lake and Fox and Alder Creeks also provide us with water, which comes to us via the Doulton Tunnel and is treated at our own state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, we operate groundwater wells and have access to State Project water for use during periods of high demand and drought.

We Are Committed to Water Quality

To ensure that your drinking water continues to meet the high standards set by county, state and federal regulators, our staff of water professionals monitors the water quality 24-hours a day, seven-days a week.

We Are Here To Serve You
