While well water (groundwater) requires very little treatment, it naturally contains iron and manganese. The District's well water not only meets or exceeds Colorado's water quality, but the District also removes the iron and manganese to keep your water running clear and pure. That's why the water is treated in a series of multi-media pressure filters.
Consumer Confidence Report
Meridian Service Metropolitan District provides domestic water to the Meridian Ranch Community using a well and pump system.
Every community water system is required by Federal law to provide its customers with a water quality report, also known as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) by July 1 of each year. This report lists the regulated contaminants, if any, for that year's sampling requirements. The results, along with the Safe Drinking Water Maximum allowable level, are always on the CCR report that you receive.
The reason for the report containing results from the previous year is based on the sampling requirements from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE), along with the EPA. Some of those sampling requirements occur each month and others occur at different times of the year based on water usage and when a contaminant may be more likely to be found in the water. So in order to provide a complete CCR report for the entire year, along with providing sufficient time for the public water systems to prepare the report, the CDPHE allows six months for the water provider to prepare and distribute the report to its customers. Thus, the current CCR will be dated from the previous year.
You can be assured that MSMD continues to meet and/or exceed all State and Federal water quality standards as set forth by the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act and any other subsequent revisions. See for yourself by reviewing all the CCRs since MSMD began purifying the community's water in 2018. Our goal is to provide the safest drinking water to the public that is affordable and dependable.2022 Consumer Confidence Report2021 Consumer Confidence Report2020 Consumer Confidence Report2019 Consumer Confidence Report2018 Consumer Confidence Report
