    Drinking Water Quality: Annual Water Quality Reports (AWQR)


    The Annual Water Quality Report is designed to provide consumers with information on the quality of the water delivered by their public water system. Annual Water Quality Reports must contain information about the water system; information on the source of the water; reporting levels of contaminants detected in the finished water; information on cryptosporidium, radon, and other unregulated contaminants; information on any violations of the national primary drinking water regulations; and information regarding any variances or exemptions the water system may be operating under.


    Consumers have the right to know what is in their drinking water. The information contained in an Annual Water Quality Report can raise consumers' awareness regarding the source of their drinking water, help consumers to understand the process by which safe drinking water is delivered to their homes, and educate consumers about the importance of preventative measures, such as source protection, that ensure a safe drinking water supply. The information in the reports can be used by consumers, especially those with special health needs, to make informed decisions regarding their drinking water. Educated consumers are more likely to help protect their drinking water sources and to appreciate the true costs of safe drinking water. – NYS Dept. of Health
