Water Quality Reports

As part of the Safe Drinking Water Act, we issue an annual water quality report for the Madison Utilities water system. This report provides customers with a summary of the water quality information that we provide to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The report contains:

  • Water Sources
  • Who Regulates the Drinking Water
  • What, if any, contaminants were detected
  • Information about important happenings at Madison Utilities or other news from the report year

We provide a copy of this report to every customer who is directly billed. You can also download copies of recent water quality reports below.
