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?

​MA Department of Environmental Protection - Drinking Water Program

Residents of East Longmeadow should read the public notification mailed in April 2019 carefully. As noted in the notification, the levels of HAA5’s in your drinking water have been drastically reduced. 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 42 ppb taken at Harkness in March 2019. The Massachusetts DEP considers Operational Evaluation Levels (OEL) below 60 ppb to be safe. You can see in the chart that all the samples taken in March 2019 are below this level. The OEL number you see as being 67.7 ppb is an average of the previous two quarters and two times the current quarter. So although the levels have dropped to an acceptable and safe range, the average exceeds the 60 ppb level. 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 70.2 ppb is thus exceeding the limit.
