Water Quality Report

We are pleased to present to you our Annual Water Quality Report for the year 2015. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. In view of this goal, we are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.


Well Water


Our water comes from wells drilled deep into aquifers 300 to 800 feet below the surface. These aquifers are the Pascagoula and the Graham’s Ferry formations. Each well is evaluated on an annual basis for purity and content. The City of Pascagoula uses a Reverse Osmosis/Ozone water filtration system to purify the well water. If you want to learn more about your water and how the City of Pascagoula works to keep your water safe please contact Jeff Hutchison.

Water Assessment


The source water assessment has also been completed for our public water system to determine the overall susceptibility of its drinking water to identify potential sources of contamination.  A report containing detailed information on how the susceptibility determinations were made has been furnished to our Public Works Department and is available for viewing at our office upon request.

Results


The City of Pascagoula routinely monitors for substances and contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. This table shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2015.  As water travels over the land or underground, it may pick up substances or contaminants such as microbes, inorganic and organic chemicals, and radioactive substances. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water, is suspected to contain small amounts of some substances or contaminants. It is important to remember that the presence of these substances or contaminants does not necessarily pose a health risk.
