Consumer Confidence Reports
We are pleased to present a summary of the quality of the water provided to District customers each year. The federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires that water utilities issue an annual “Consumer Confidence” report to customers in addition to other notices that may be required by law. This report details where our water comes from, what it contains, and the risks that our water testing and treatment are designed to prevent. The Portsmouth Water and Fire District is committed to providing you with the safest and most reliable water supply available. Informed consumers are our best allies in maintaining safe drinking water.
All PWFD customers should receive a report by mail. Copies of the report can be found at our main office. In addition, a news release version is published in the local newspaper.
Below you will find issued Consumer Confidence Reports organized by year.
