Following the standing plan to regularly monitor its water supply for hexavalent chromium, the City of Paramount has undergone a fifth round of monthly testing, a schedule that exceeds both federal and state standards.
Test results for March 2017 indicated a level of 0.279 ug/l of hexavalent chromium. The samples taken for April show a level of 0.104 ug/l. Both of these results are well below the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 10 ug/l for the state.
“The City of Paramount will continue testing our water with a consistent, reliable frequency to assure our residents that the supply is completely safe,” said Mayor Peggy Lemons. “This month’s results again reinforce this fact, and we will make sure it stays that way.”
The results for April and previous months can be viewed on the Hexavalent Chromium Test Results page.
