DPW to Implement Electronic Delivery of the Annual Water Quality Report
Wednesday Mar 7th, 2018
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will use electronic delivery to disseminate its Annual Water Quality Report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, to City and County water customers. Previously, the four-page report was mailed to each customer along with a springtime water bill.
“Electronic delivery of the annual water quality is a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to inform our customers about the quality of their drinking water,” said DPW Director Rudolph S. Chow, P.E.
Starting April 1, Baltimore’s 2017 water quality report will be available online at publicworks.baltimorecity.gov/waterreport. Also, in April, water customers who want printed copies of the report can call 311 or (410) 396-5352.
Baltimore City and County customers are being notified of the implementation of electronic delivery of the Annual Water Quality report via a message on their water bill. They will see the web address that will take them directly to the report.
The annual report informs water customers where the City’s drinking water comes from, how the water is treated, what chemicals it contains, and how it meets federal standards for tap water.
