Bellflower-Somerset Mutual Water Company shareholders can learn about the quality of their drinking water in the 2019 BSMWC Water Quality Report, available online now.
According to the 2019 BSMWC Consumer Confidence Report, shareholders’ tap water met all U.S. EPA and State drinking water health standards. In fact, the report states that the system has never violated a maximum contaminant level or any other water quality standard.
In addition to providing a snapshot of last year’s water quality data, the report includes information about where BSMWC water comes from, how the water is tested, and how shareholders can participate in water-related decisions. The report concludes with recommended water conservation tips, including fixing home leaks, adjusting sprinklers, using organic mulch and installing water-efficient showerheads. Shareholders are encouraged to visit www.epa.gov/watersense for more water conservation information.

The purpose of the report is to raise customers’ awareness of the quality of their drinking water, where their drinking water comes from, what it takes to deliver water to their homes, and the importance of protecting drinking water sources.
