FALLBROOK ‚Äď The Fallbrook Public Utility Districtís annual Consumer Confidence Report, or CCR, contains detailed information on water quality tests performed in 2013. These sampling tests ensure that the districtís water meets regulatory standards.

FPUDís tap water met or exceeded all state and federal requirements this year, as in years past.

The CCR became available July 1 on the districtís website at

The CCR is essentially FPUDís report card. It includes details about where FPUD water comes from, what it contains, and how FPUD water compares to Environmental Protection Agency and state standards.

All water retailers are required by the California Department of Health Services to provide the report to their customers showing water-quality test results. The test results are compared to the federal and state permitted maximum contaminant levels, or MCLs.

This is the second year water agencies were allowed to post the CCR online rather than mailing it to all customers, thereby saving the districts thousands of dollars in print and mailing costs. Water agencies are required to notify their customers, via a message in their bills for example, that the report is available online. Agencies must also provide them with a direct link to the report.

Viewing the report requires a pdf reader. If one isnít installed, they can get the free Adobe Reader at:

Extra copies of the report can be obtained at the district office, 990 E. Mission Road in Fallbrook. Anyone with questions on the report can contact Jason Cavender, FPUDís chief systems operator, at or (760) 728-1125, ext. 1128.

It may pass Govt standards, but funny how it seems to kill many of my plants when I water. My plants only bounce back after we get real water from rain.

My water tastes like gasoline! I am glad to see the government sees that as a good standard. Oh and I see by this article that this is the second year agencies were allowed to post the CCR online saving thousands of dollars in print and mailing costs. That being said, they didn't save those costs when stating a tier system would now be in place via mail. What I don't understand is why if your water bill goes up one month, because of a two week visit from family, your bill raises to the next tier, yet when you return to your low normals again, you are not placed back into the lower tier you were originally, don't expect me to conserve water anymore for if FPUD is going to charge me for more water than I use then from now on I will just do what the board does, use what I want or need and if we run out, oh well...each man for his own.
