Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) has released and mailed its annual Water Quality Report to homes and businesses in the District’s 122 square-mile service area, which includes the cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Westlake Village and surrounding unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The report is also available online at www.LVMWD.com. This annual publication is a state and federal requirement that shows test results of water quality analysis conducted in 2011. As in years past, the report shows that LVMWD customers are provided with very high quality tap water.
The annual Water Quality Report, also called a Consumer Confidence Report, is intended to educate the public on the extensive monitoring done on tap water and the findings of those tests. John R. Mundy, LVMWD’s General Manager said, “Las Virgenes customers can be assured that the water they receive from LVMWD is of excellent quality and is safe and healthy to drink.”
Originating in northern California, LVMWD’s water undergoes treatment that includes filtration and disinfection prior to delivery. Personnel of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and LVMWD staff technicians perform ongoing tests to assure the safety and quality of water, taking samples at several locations in the service area throughout the year and then performing detailed analysis.
The annual Water Quality Report contains additional information on water topics that customers should review. Additional printed copies are available at LVMWD headquarters at 4232 Las Virgenes Rd. in Calabasas.
LVMWD is a public agency that provides potable water, wastewater treatment, recycled water and biosolids composting services to some 70,000 persons in its service area.
