Letter from the Chairman,
My Fellow Customers:
I am happy to report that Fairfax Water continues to provide you with water of exceptional quality at some of the lowest rates in the region.
I invite you to read further and view the data firsthand, but first I would like to talk a bit about the purpose of this publication. If you are a new customer, this may be the first time you’ve seen our Annual Water Quality Report. I want to take this opportunity to explain its importance.
This report compiles water quality data based on standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). Fairfax Water’s mutual interest with those organizations is to be transparent and communicate with you about the quality of your water. EPA’s Consumer Confidence Report Rule requires that every drinking water utility make this report available to customers annually and that it be available for viewing online or on paper. If you have friends or family in neighboring counties and cities who have questions about their water quality, please encourage them to ask their water utility for the most recent report.
Knowledge is power, and this report is designed to give you the knowledge you need about the water you drink every day. You will learn about the quality of your water, the source of your drinking water, how we manage risks to our water supply, and the water treatment process. Being both customer and Chairman of Fairfax Water’s Board of Directors, I am proud of this report and the information it contains. I hope you are inspired to learn more about the water we proudly serve.
Philip W. Allin
Chairman Fairfax Water Board of Directors
