Rockville’s Drinking Water Passes EPA Test
Rockville’s drinking water continues to be safe, according to an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report released today.
The Environmental Protection Agency report details the source, treatment, distribution, safety and quality of Rockville’s drinking water. Rockville’s drinking water met or exceeded all drinking water quality regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and adopted and enforced by the Maryland Department of the Environment, according to a release from the city.
Like all drinking water utilities serving more than 10,000 people, the city was required to perform quarterly testing for a year for 21 unregulated contaminants under the EPA’s Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule. The testing, the results of which are found in the report’s Water Quality Data Table, helps the EPA determine whether any of the contaminants need to be regulated to protect public health.
