Consumer Confidence Reports


Consumer Confidence Reports are a snapshot of the quality of the water that we provided during the year on report.  Included are the details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state standards.  We are committed to providing you with information because informed customers are our best allies.  It is important that customers be aware of the efforts that are continually being made to improve their water systems.  To learn more, please attend any of the regularly scheduled meetings. For more information please contact Matthew (Matt) Martensen at 775-577-2223.


Did you know that the average U.S. household used approximately 400 gallons of water per day or 100 gallons per person per day?  Luckily there are many low-cost and no-cost ways to conserve water.  Small changes can make a big difference.
  • Take short showers - a 5 minute shower uses 4 to 5 gallons of water compared to up to 50 gallons for a bath.
  • Shut off water while brushing your teeth, washing your hair and shaving can save up to 500 gallons a month.
  • Use a water-efficient shower head.  They're inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month.
  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full.  You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Water plants only when necessary.
  • Fix leaky toilets and faucets.  Faucet washers are inexpensive and take only a few minutes to replace.  To check your toilet for a leak, place a few drops of food coloring in the tank and wait.  If I seeps into the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak.  Fixing it or replacing it with a new, more efficient model can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Cut lawn to 3" and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered.  Apply water only as fast as the soil can absorb it and during the cooler parts of the day to reduce evaporation.
  • Teach your kids about water conservation to ensure a future generation that uses water wisely.
