WaterOne Releases 2019 Water Quality Report

Post Date:04/23/2019

Lenexa, KS – WaterOne has released its 2019 Water Quality Report, now available at waterone.org/2019Report. WaterOne is pleased to report that its water meets or surpasses 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 over the previous year. 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 ran over 20,000 tests on more than 14,000 water samples in 2018 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 communities 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.

Clean, great tasting tap water is produced through continued diligence in infrastructure investment and professional standards. WaterOne’s success is the result of its award-winning treatment process which produces consistently delicious drinking water. In 2018, the district was recognized with the “Best Tasting Water In Kansas” award by the Kansas Section - American Water Works Association. The award marked the fourth time WaterOne received this recognition, making it the winningest water utility in the state of Kansas. WaterOne was also named “Best Tasting Water In Kansas” by the Kansas Rural Water Association in 2018.

 “We take great pride in providing fresh and delicious tap water for our customers,” said Michelle Wirth, WaterOne’s Director of Production. “We make sure our water quality goes above and beyond what is required, because that’s a value our customers have come to expect from WaterOne.”

WaterOne provides fresh water daily to over 440,000 people in the Johnson County area. And it’s a bargain – less than half a penny per gallon delivered to the customer’s tap for the average residential customer.  Tap water is delicious, local, and environmentally friendly.
