Truckee Meadows Water Authority Water Quality Report

The table below lists all of the primary regulated drinking water contaminants that we detected during the calendar 2012 year of this report on finished water that has been treated. The presence of contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate the water poses a health risk. Unless otherwise noted, the data presented in this table is from testing done in the calendar year of the report. The EPA or the State requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently.

Nevada 2012 Water Quality Integrated Report (final draft)

The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection is required by the Clean Water Act to
conduct a comprehensive analysis of water quality data associated with Nevada's surface
waters to determine whether state water quality standards are being met and designated
uses are being supported. Nevada’s Integrated Report is prepared in accordance with the
requirements of Sections 303(d)/305(b)/314 of the Clean Water Act and is intended for use
by the public, other entities and NDEP for water quality management planning purposes.
The Nevada 2012 Integrated Report evaluates data collected over a 5 year period, between
October 1, 2006 and September 30, 2011.

The Nevada 2012 Integrated Report has been submitted to the United States Environmental
Protection Agency for approval, as of April 7, 2014.

The Nevada 2012 Integrated Report is available at:
