Water Quality Report_Social Media4 (2)

Santa Margarita Water District delivers over 7.8 billion gallons of high-quality drinking water to nearly 200,000 residents in south Orange County.

The District’s dedicated laboratory team continuously monitors the water from 100 sites throughout the service area and runs over 20,000 water quality tests each year.

Additionally, our supplier, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, adheres to California’s comprehensive and safe drinking water standards that require a multistep treatment process that includes filtration and disinfection. This process removes and kills viruses, including COVID-19, as well as bacteria and other pathogens.

The thousands of tests routinely conducted across the system and monitored by the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Department of Drinking Water are part of a year-round effort to ensure your high-quality drinking water supply.

SMWD’s 2020 Water Quality Report shows that your drinking water meets or surpasses the most stringent drinking water standards set by state and federal agencies.
