A Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is an annual water quality report delivered by community water systems (CWSs) to their customers. The CCR includes information on source water, the levels of detected contaminants, and compliance with drinking water rules.
The reports are due to customers by July 1st of each year.

A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
The Grayson County Water District is committed to providing our customers with the safest water as economically possible. While the EPA and the Kentucky Division of Water set minimum standards of quality which we consistently meet, we strive to deliver water that exceeds those standards 100% of the time.
With that goal in mind Grayson County Water District added Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) reactors and Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection to the treatment process for the main purpose of disinfection by-product reduction. Secondary benefits of GAC are better taste and odor control, and reduction of other contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, endocrine disruptors, pharmaceuticals, and organic carbon; many of which are not currently regulated but are in the early stages of evaluation for being regulated.
In order to demonstrate that our goals are met, in 2015 the Grayson County Water District analyzed the water either in our lab at the treatment plant or through a contract lab over 11000 times for 108 different parameters. Some of those parameters are continuously monitored by on-line process instruments at the treatment plant and in the field.
To achieve such high goals it takes knowledgeable people who are dedicated to our mission. Grayson County Water District employs 10 people with over 160 years of combined experience in the drinking water field. They accumulated 111 hours of continuing education credits in 2015 for certification renewal. In 2015 these water professionals performed over 1400 preventative maintenance tasks on water district equipment and nearly 3400 non-maintenance tasks to keep a water system of over 560 miles of pipe, 7691 meters, 8 storage tanks, 8 pump / valve stations and a water treatment plant operating efficiently. Over 412 million gallons of water was delivered to our customers in 2015.
What all this means is that when you turn on your faucet you can rest assured that a strong network of people, technology, and infrastructure is working together to insure that what comes out of your faucet is clean and safe to drink.
