As the preference for getting information online – rather than on paper – continues to expand through local government and utilities, Culver City’s water supply company, Golden State Water, now offers a site where you can connect with information, and review local water quality issues.
Headlines about the recent crisis in Flint, Michigan prompted many to scrutinize local water quality, and along with continuing drought issues that all of California is still conscious of, the need for an accessible information base prompted the company to put standards online.
According to the site “GSW strictly adheres to federal and state drinking water quality guidelines required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the State Water Resources Control Board‘s Division of Drinking Water and the California Public Utilities Commission. We routinely sample to monitor water quality, testing for more than 230 elements in our water supplied to and in the distribution systems. In 2015 alone, we invested more than half a million dollars on laboratory testing to meet regulatory standards.
In the uncommon event that drinking water standards are compromised, we take immediate action, notify customers timely and restore normal service. In addition, Golden State Water’s Customer Service Representatives are available around-the-clock for customers at 1.800.999.4033.
