[ARCHIVED] 2016 Durham Water Quality Report Now Available

DURHAM, N.C. — Once again, the City of Durham and Department of Water Management are proud to announce zero violations of Durham’s drinking water quality standards in 2016. This and other achievements are highlighted in the 2016 annual water quality report, “Flowing Into the Future.” The report, required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is now available on the City’s website at

“It takes more than 300 talented, dedicated Water Management employees to ensure all of our customers have clean, safe water every time they turn on the tap,” said Don Greeley, director of the Department of Water Management. “We encourage our customers to read this report and learn how much effort it takes to provide and protect this valuable natural resource, and what we are doing now to plan for future decades and a growing Durham.”

The EPA requires all water utilities publish water quality reports annually to customers by July 1. EPA regulations allow us to distribute this report electronically at the link above. Customers may also request a printed copy by emailing [email protected] or calling (919) 560-4381.
