Holland, MI – JUNE 10, 2016— Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) has officially released its 2015 Annual Water Quality Report. The report is available online at www.hollandbpw.com/waterqualityreport15. Customers will receive a notice of its availability in bills by July 1.
The report indicates that the Holland Water Treatment System met all federal and state drinking water regulations without exception from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.
In accordance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), all community water utilities are required to annually provide a water quality report. The report is distributed each year and reports vital information about Holland’s water quality for the previous year.
As a state certified microbiological lab, the HBPW’s Water Treatment Plant, in conjunction with three independent labs, conducted more than 50,000 tests for more than 200 plus contaminants in 2015. HBPW treated 4,089,848,278 gallons of water in 2015.
“The Annual Water Quality Report is our opportunity to demonstrate all we do to assure safe drinking water,” said Dave Koster, general manager, HBPW. “Our residents and businesses can trust their water system and its treatment process. We want our community to know that we go above and beyond all procedures and protocols to provide clean, safe drinking water for their them and their families.”
This year’s website format allows customers to easily click on different tabs about this year’s results, and information about the water treatment process and testing standards.
The Holland Board of Public Works has been providing water to the area for more than 127 years and currently provides drinking water in the City of Holland, the City of Zeeland and portions of Holland, Laketown, Fillmore and Park Townships. HBPW has consistently safeguarded its water supply and maintained a system that has never violated a maximum containment level or any other water quality standard.
