The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the federal law that protects public drinking water supplies throughout the nation.
Under the SDWA, EPA and individual states set standards for drinking water quality. Every month NTMWD tests hundreds of waters samples for compliance with state and federal regulations. We generate a monthly report listing the results of the routinely tested parameters and the associated state and federal requirements. This is an excellent report to see a monthly snapshot of the quality of the water provided by NTMWD.

Consumer Confidence Reports
North Texas Municipal Water District publishes an Annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to provide an overview of water quality during the previous calendar year. NTMWD is required to produce this report each year on the quality of its drinking water under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1976, as amended in 1996.
The CCR also serves as a reminder of the importance and need to protect drinking water sources and informs consumers:
- About their drinking water source
- What analytical tests are conducted to ensure the safety of NTMWD’s drinking water
- On the results of the analytical testing
- How the test results compare to state drinking water standards
CCR Reporting Corrections
*Radioactive Contaminants – Past Consumer Confidence Reports may have included incorrect units of measurement with regards to radioactive contaminants. Past reports utilized data from Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that may have represented units of measure as millirems per year and should have been reported as picocuries per liter. NTMWD apologizes for any confusion this may have caused consumers. NTMWD treated drinking water has never exceeded or received a violation for radioactive contaminants.
