WaterOne Releases 2018 Water Quality Report
Lenexa, KS – WaterOne has released its 2018 Water Quality Report, now available at waterone.org/2018Report. WaterOne is pleased to report that its water meets or exceeds all standards for safe and high-quality water, and that water produced by WaterOne consistently ranks among the best for purity, reliability, and taste.
The Annual Water Quality Report features detailed information and explanations about the make-up of WaterOne’s water in 2017. Descriptions of WaterOne’s treatments methods, production volume, and water sources are also provided. The report was generated based on the results of WaterOne’s state-of-the-art water treatment lab, which runs 25,000 tests each year on more than 16,000 water samples to ensure that its water meets quality standards. Landlords, businesses, schools, and other groups with water users who do not receive a bill directly from WaterOne are encouraged to make their stakeholders aware of the report’s availability. Paper reports will be available at most Johnson County Library locations and WaterOne Administrative Offices, located at 10747 Renner Boulevard in Lenexa.
It takes a lot of hard work to make clean, delicious tap water. WaterOne’s success is the result of its award-winning treatment process, and its methods are always improving. The 2018 Water Quality Report comes as WaterOne is upgrading its facilities to incorporate ozone as part of its water treatment process. Ozone is a powerful, naturally-occurring oxidant that will allow WaterOne to treat water better and more effectively.
“The health and safety of our customers is our highest priority at WaterOne,” said Michelle Wirth, Director of Production. “We strive to deliver water that goes above and beyond regulatory levels, and our proactive investment in ozone water treatment will help us continue to set the standard for utility excellence.”
WaterOne provides fresh water daily to approximately 435,000 people in the Johnson County area. And it’s a bargain – less than half a penny per gallon delivered to the customer’s tap. Tap water is delicious, local, and environmentally friendly. More information about WaterOne can be found at www.waterone.org, and for facts about why tap water matters, visit www.ILoveTap.org.
