Water Quality

Water delivered by Hi-Desert Water District is clean and safe! The proof is in the hundreds of water quality tests performed each year by certified staff in our Water Quality and Production Department. Testing is conducted at well sites and numerous locations throughout the distribution system and additionally when a well or any portion of a main line is repaired.

Samples are analyzed by an independent, state-certified laboratory and the results are sent to the District and the California Department of Health Services for review. Tests are run for regulated substances such as bacteria, nitrate, chromium and others to make sure HDWD water meets all state and federal water quality standards.

With these rigorous testing procedures, the public is assured that the water delivered to their home is clean and safe. Each June the District sends customers a water quality report detailing the tests and results.
