The Department of Water’s 2023 Water Quality Reports, covering the period of Jan. 1, 2022, to Dec. 31, 2022, are now available on the Department’s website at Kauaiwater.org.

In accordance with The Safe Drinking Water Act, the Department of Water produces and provides its customers with an annual water quality report by July 1.

This year, the release of the water quality reports coincides with the start of National Drinking Water Week, celebrated May 8 through 12, by the American Water Works Association, the Department of Water and water utilities around the country to recognize the vital role tap water plays in everyday life, the infrastructure that delivers water to communities and the important work of water professionals behind-the-scenes.


“We are pleased to publish the comprehensive and data-driven water quality reports and show our commitment to delivering high-quality water service to our more than 24,000 customers,” said Joe Tait, the Department’s manager and chief engineer.

The Department of Water’s water quality reports contain information on Kaua‘i’s water sources, results of water analyses, compliance with drinking water rules, and other educational materials. Water is tested regularly through the State Department of Health and the Department of Water’s certified laboratories.

The Department of Water’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 Department of Water’s annual Water Quality Reports are issued electronically unless a paper copy is requested. Customers also receive a direct link to their specific report noted on their monthly billing statement and those who have requested annual paper copies in the past will be automatically mailed a paper copy again this year.

To request a paper copy of a water quality report or to be removed from the annual report mailing list, please contact the Department of Water at 808-245-5455.
