Why do I get a CCR?
Every community water system (CWS) is required by law to provide its customers with a water quality report also known as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) by July 1st of each year. This report lists the regulated contaminants the CWS detected in treated water and the level at which they were found for the preceding calendar year.
