Is my tap water safe to drink?

Your water meets and exceeds the drinking water standards of both the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). All collected water samples are taken to a State-certified laboratory for analysis. In most cases, water provided from your tap is better than bottled water bought at the store. Bottled water distributors are not regulated by the SWRCB or the USEPA to meet drinking water standards. For specific additional information about the quality of water delivered to your tap, please see the Valley County Water District Annual Newsletter and Consumer Confidence Report.
