Subject: Annual Water Quality Report for the Town of Yountville Issued
The Town of Yountville is pleased to report this year that the drinking water supplied to water customers meets or exceeds state and federal public health standards for drinking water quality and safety. California water retailers, including the Town of Yountville, are required by law to inform customers about the quality of their drinking water. The results of the testing and monitoring programs of 2016 are included in the full report, which can be viewed on the Town’s website.
The Town of Yountville’s main source of water is supplied from Rector Reservoir, which is owned and operated by the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CDVA). They take all the required water sampling for water source data for the year. Chlorine is added to the water to help ensure that the water is safe when it is used by customers.
The Town purchases water from the CDVA and distributes it in pipes under Town streets to customers. Town staff takes water samples from the distribution system for testing for coliform and general physical properties as required by the California State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water. Disinfection byproducts samples are also taken for Haloacetic Acids and Trihalomethanes, which is done four times per year. Disinfection byproducts are trace elements left in the water after chlorination. Additional lead and copper samples are taken every three years.
