Water Utility Earns 16-Year Directors Award through the Partnership for Safe Water

Tennessee American Water announces that the company’s 2015 Consumer Confidence Reports (Water Quality Reports) are available to customers online. In addition, Tennessee American Water has once again earned the Directors Award through the Partnership for Safe Water, marking the 16th consecutive year the utility has achieved this level of surpassing standards.

The annual water quality report, also known as the consumer confidence report, is a performance measure of the quality of water. These measures are established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. The report describes local drinking water sources, testing conducted on the water, substances detected, and the levels of those substances.

The Partnership for Safe Water is a voluntary utility program with the mission of improving drinking water quality by optimizing operations. In the state of Tennessee, nine utilities participate in the Partnership’s treatment plant optimization program. Across the U.S., about 400 utilities participate in the Partnership.

“Since 1887 we have been the primary water provider for the Chattanooga area and have always been committed to the highest standards for water quality to our customers,” said Tennessee American Water President Valoria Armstrong. “In 2016, our goal is to be 18 times better than the

U.S. average for water quality standards. Participating in the Partnership for Safe Water is one way we exceed standards.”
