Kauai says the results of water quality tests from last year show the county’s water meets all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for safe drinking water.
The county says any contaminants found in the water were well below levels allowed by the EPA.
The county’s Department of Water said Wednesday it has prepared reports on the tests conduct in 2010 and sent them to all of its customers. The reports have information on the source of water for all nine of the department’s systems, level of contaminants in the water, and the county’s compliance with drinking water rules.
Federal law requires water utilities to provide water quality information to customers each year.
