Oceanside CA— In response to reports of door-to-door sales people offering Oceanside residents home water testing, the City of Oceanside is reminding residents that they are committed to providing its customers with safe drinking water. The water distributed to City residents and businesses is routinely tested for approximately 90 different substances to ensure that the water is of the highest quality.
“I understand how recent water events in Michigan heighten everyone’s awareness about water quality,” said Cari Dale, City of Oceanside’s Water Utilities Director. “I want to assure our customers, with the utmost confidence and based on recent testing, the water being distributed to the City of Oceanside’s residents and businesses is clean and lead free.”
Each year before July 1, the City issues a Water Quality Report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, available for public review. The document is state-mandated and includes details about where the City’s water comes from, what it contains and how it compares to state standards. The latest results did not find lead or copper in water distributed to Oceanside’s customers.
