DOW customers also receive a direct link to their specific water quality report noted on their monthly billing statement.

The reports describe the quality of Kaua‘i’s drinking water and where it comes from. It contains basic information on Kaua‘i’s water sources, results of water analyses, compliance with drinking water rules, and other brief educational materials.

The DOW’s annual water quality reports are in accordance with The Safe Drinking Water Act, a federal law which requires water utilities to provide water quality information to its customers every year.

Kaua‘i’s drinking water is tested regularly through the State Department of Health and DOW’s certified laboratories. Kaua‘i’s drinking water meets all the Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines for safe drinking water, and any contaminants found were well below the levels allowed by the EPA.

The DOW’s annual Water Quality Reports are available electronically unless a paper copy is requested. To request a paper copy of a report or to be removed from the annual report mailing list, call the Department of Water at 808-245-5455.

Customers who have requested annual paper copies in the past, will be automatically mailed a paper copy again this year.
