Painesville Water Division prides itself on transparency and commitment to delivering the best-quality drinking water to our customers. In compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Painesville Water Division prepares an annual report on the quality of our drinking water. The EPA requires regular sampling to ensure drinking water safety.
Every year the Painesville Water Division conducts sampling for bacteria, inorganic, synthetic organic and volatile organic contaminants, sampling 100+ different contaminants. Most contaminants are not detected in the Painesville water supply. Because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently, the Ohio EPA requires us to monitor these contaminants less than once per year. Thus, although accurate, some data may be more than one year old in each report.
