As Drinking Water Week is being recognized May 2-8, the City of Moberly joins the American Water Works Association and water professionals across North America in encouraging water consumers to get to know their local H2O according to a press release issued Monday morning by the City of Moberly.
“During the Coronavirus Pandemic, the vital resource of tap water for sanitation and drinking water was brought to the forefront. The employees that worked around the clock, in good weather and bad, were part of the essential front-line workers that served our community. The motto of Drinking Water Week this year is “There When You Need It” and Moberly met that need well. Our lake, the water plant, and the pipes that deliver water to us all must be available and function reliably. ” stated Mary West-Calcagno, Director of Public Utilities.
Finding information about local water is simple. As required by the Safe Drinking Water Act, water utilities must provide customers with an annual water quality report, also called a Consumer Confidence Report.
A CCR identifies the quality of local drinking water,if any contaminants are detected and if so, which ones.
Also available inthe report is information on Moberly’s local source for drinking water.
Moberly’s CCR is available online on the city’s website athttp://bit.ly/2020mobccr, at City Hall, the Little Dixie Regional Library, Moberly Parks and Recreation, and Moberly Housing Authority.
Additionally, information on local source water is available through the Lakes of Missouri Volunteer Program at http://lmvp.org/Lakes/Sugarcreek/sugarcreek.htm.
