Water Quality Reporting

We are pleased to present a summary of the quality of the water provided to you during the past year. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires that utilities issue an annual “Consumer Confidence” report to customers in addition to other notices that may be required by law.

This report details where our water comes from, what it contains, and the risks our water testing is designed to prevent. East Longmeadow is committed to providing you with the safest and most reliable water supply. Informed customers are our best allies in maintaining safe drinking water.

Is Springfield Drinking Water Safe?
More on HAA5's

​MA Department of Environmental Protection - Drinking Water Program

Residents of East Longmeadow should read the public notification mailed in March 2020 carefully. As noted in the notification, the levels of HAA5’s in your drinking water has decreased. Please see the Quarterly Compliance Worksheet that shows the levels at the Harkness sample site have come down from a high of 129 ppb in December 2018 to the current level of 38.9 ppb taken at Harkness in March 2020. The Massachusetts DEP considers Operational Evaluation Levels (OEL) below 60 ppb to be safe. The OEL number you see as being 58.5 ppb is an average of the previous two quarters and two times the current quarter. The Locational Running Annual Average (LRAA) is the average from all four quarters at the same sample location. The Harkness sample location LRAA is showing 61.6 ppb is thus exceeding the limit.

​EPA and MassDEP recommend that building owners and managers take proactive steps to protect public health by minimizing water stagnation during closures.
