Letter from the Chairman:
My fellow Fairfax Water customers,
Once again, we are happy to report on the outstanding quality of your water with our 2020 Water Quality Report. The report is a service we are pleased to provide to you to ensure that you know the quality of the tap water you use every day. We believe our methods and outcomes should be as transparent and healthy as the water we deliver. This concept has been a primary goal for Fairfax Water from day one, and that will never change.
For Fairfax Water, 2020 has been a year of renewed commitment to serving water of exceptional quality to our customers. The COVID-19 pandemic shows all of us the life-sustaining importance of quality water and having a reliable source of drinking water. It shines a spotlight on two vital public health needs with regards to tap water: handwashing and the use of chlorine to disinfect water. Handwashing is one of the most effective steps you can take to prevent the spread of disease, and we know the importance of assuring that you have a reliable source of water to keep up this crucial practice. Disinfectants, like chlorine, are used to treat drinking water and are effective in inactivating the Coronavirus. Situations like the one we are experiencing in 2020 show the vast importance that chlorination and our other disinfection processes have on protecting public health.
The Board and employees of Fairfax Water all know the importance of the essential service that we provide. The consistently excellent quality of our water shows this fact. Our core mission and dedication to service is a tradition that we have passed down to new staff members over the years. This tradition is the enduring legacy of Fairfax Water, and we hope to keep doing great things for our community.
- Philip W. Allin
Chairman of the Board
