Transcript: Our annual Water Quality Report is out, and it confirms that our Water Management team is continuing to deliver clean and safe drinking water to our more than 309,000 Durham residents. The report shows that the department routinely monitors more than 150 contaminants as it achieved 100 percent compliance with all federal drinking water standards and had zero water quality violations in 2021. It also outlines the journey water takes from source to tap, so if that’s something that you’re interested in learning more about, you’ll definitely want to read the full report. In another nod to the department’s hard work, the 2021 Resident Satisfaction Survey show that nearly 75 percent of respondents said they are very satisfied or satisfied with water and sewer services. That’s an eight percent improvement from the previous year and 21 percent better than the national average for water and sewer satisfaction. The report is available in English and Spanish at Durham NC dot gov slash 946.
