CLAIM: Hexavalent Chromium Levels exceed acceptable levels in our water making it dangerous to drink or bathe in.
Following state and federal guidelines, the City began testing for hexavalent chromium in 2014 and reported the results in the 2014 Consumer Confidence Report available here. To address concerns that hexavalent chromium had contaminated the City’s water supply the City had the water tested again in December 2016 and the presence of hexavalent chromium levels were less than 1 part per billion, a level that is considered healthy. Further, the City has committed to continued testing of hexavalent chromium in the water supply every month for the foreseeable future. The monthly results can be found on the Hexavalent Chromium Test Results page.
