Report Shows Carlsbad Provides High Quality Drinking Water

The city's water district's annual report says water quality meets all state and federal standards.

Carlsbad Municipal Water District’s annual Water Quality Report shows the tap water it provides to about 38,000 homes and businesses meets all state and federal water quality standards for drinking water.

“Our residents should feel confident in the water we provide,” said Glenn Pruim, general manager of the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, a subsidiary district of the City of Carlsbad. “People might not realize that their water undergoes rigorous testing— even more than bottled water.”  

The report will be mailed to all Carlsbad Municipal Water District customers at the end of June. It includes detailed water quality test results and explains where Carlsbad’s drinking water comes from.  

The Carlsbad Municipal Water District Water Quality Report will also be available on the city’s website at www.carlsbadca.gov/water and at the following locations:  

  • Carlsbad Municipal Water District, 5950 El Camino Real
  • City of Carlsbad Faraday Center, 1635 Faraday Ave.
  • City of Carlsbad City Hall, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive
  • The city’s three libraries, 1775 Dove Lane; 1250 Carlsbad Village Drive; 3368 Eureka Place

All California water agencies are required to distribute a water quality report by July 1. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department of Public Health regulate the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems.

The Carlsbad Municipal Water District delivers water and recycled water to about 85 percent of the City of Carlsbad. The southeastern part of the city is served by the Olivenhain Municipal Water District and the Vallecitos Water District.
