Water Quality Reports for Calendar Year 2018 & Previous Years

Our Consumer Confidence Reports for past years as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act are posted below. These reports detail where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set by regulatory agencies.

2010 was the last time there were five separate reports under the names of the original five former mutual domestic associations. Beginning with 2011, all of the water quality data is combined in one report for the Lower Rio Grande Public Water Works Authority for those five systems.

During 2012, the Butterfield Park, Organ and Brazito water associations voted to merge with the Lower Rio Grande PWWA. The 2012 CCRs for these three associations are separate documents.

In 2016 the LRGPWWA purchased the Valle Del Rio water system. The 2015 CCR for this system is also a separate document, found below.

In 2018, High Valley MDWCA elected to merge with the Lower Rio Grande PWWA, and their CCRs beginning with 2017 are available here.

The links below will open PDF files containing the reports. You will find contact information for our Operations Manager at end end of each report if you have any questions.

Please note that Wells #1, 2 & 3 in the Desert Sands area have now all been equipped with arsenic treatment plants and lab results for arsenic have since been in compliance with arsenic MCL.
