We\'re pleased to present to you this year\'s Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of the water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
We’re pleased to report that our drinking water meets federal and state requirements. This report shows our water quality and what it means to you our customers. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Randall Brown at (435) 644-3997. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled board meetings. They are held on the second Thursday (summer months at 7:00 PM - winter months at 6:00 PM) of each month in the Kanab County Commission Chambers.

Kane County Water Conservancy District routinely monitors for constituents in our drinking water in accordance with the Federal and Utah State laws. The following table shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st through December 31st, 2016. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some constituents. It\'s important to remember that the presence of these constituents does not necessarily pose a health risk.
