The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is an annual water quality report that helps you make informed choices about the water you drink. CCRs are designed to let you know what contaminants, if any, are in your drinking water and any possible health effects. You will also learn about where your water comes from, how it is treated and what it contains.
The focal point of the CCR is a table that lists the results of year-round monitoring for more than 120 constituents. Included in the table is the quantity of each constituent found in Santa Ana’s water supply and how that compares with the allowable state and federal limits as well as its likely origin. Only the constituents that are found are listed in the data table. Bottled water is not covered in this report. The questions and answers starting on this page, numbers 1 through 7, will explain the important elements of the table.
