Water Quality Report

2017 Drinking Water Quality Report Issued

In 2017, the City’s drinking water met all stringent U.S. EPA and State health standards.  The City of Napa’s latest Drinking Water Quality Report is posted in the Water Quality section of its web site,  A printed message on their May and June water bills alerted customers of the direct web address for electronic access of the document,  Along with summarizing regulated substances and other water system statistics, the report describes our source waters, the importance of protecting our watersheds, and specific water quality concerns some customers may have.

For customers without computer access, paper copies of the 2017 Drinking Water Quality Report are now available at the Water Division, 1340 Clay Street, and at the Finance-Collection windows in City Hall, 955 School Street.  Paper copies will be mailed upon request by calling 707-257-9521.

For the past six years, the City has used an electronic distribution method for this report, saving resources and ratepayer funds while still communicating to customers about the health and safety of their tap water.

Recycling Remains as Important as Ever 

Recycling (and composting) is more important than ever.  The City of Napa’s recycling rate (more technically known as “landfill diversion” rate) has improved from a 27% rate in 1995 to an estimated 69% rate in 2017 (measured the same way as 1995). That 42% improvement is very real and very important and represents thousands of tons of discarded materials that get recycled or composted and not wasted in a landfill (the City of Napa and south Napa County disposal currently go to Potrero Hills landfill outside of Suisun).
