Golden State Water Company to Hold Online Public Health Goals Meeting
WHAT: Public Health Goals Public Meeting

WHEN: 7:00pm PST, Wednesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 27, 2022

BACKGROUND: Public Health Goals are the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. Public health goals are set by the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA). Water providers are required to hold a public meeting every three years to reassure consumers that their water is safe. These reports are unique to California, requiring extensive public reporting.
At the online Public Health Goals meeting, GSWC water quality experts will present the 2022 Reports on Public Health Goals that provide consumers with information on levels of contaminants in their water system, even though they fall below the enforceable mandatory Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs). Additionally, GSWC will provide an estimate of the cost to reduce the contaminant (s) regardless of how minimal the risk might be.
