The City of Napa’s most recent annual Drinking Water Quality Report has been posted in the Water Quality section of its web site, www.cityofnapa.org/water. The direct web address to access the document is www.cityofnapa.org/images/AQR.pdf. The 2014 report demonstrates that City water met all stringent State and Federal standards for contaminants. Additional report sections describe our source waters, the importance of protecting those sources, and specific water quality concerns some customers may have. For customers without computer access, paper reports are available at the Water Division, 1340 Clay Street, and at the Public Works counter, 1600 First Street. Paper copies will also be mailed upon request by calling 707-257-9521. This is the third year the City has used an electronic distribution method for the report, saving resources and ratepayer funds while still communicating to customers that their tap water is healthy and safe.

Water customers in portions of downtown Napa, Browns Valley, and the west end of Darms Lane have received a notification letter from the City of Napa Water Division about the presence of disinfection byproducts in their drinking water. The particular byproducts involved are Tri-halomethanes (THMs). The notification has led to around 30 inquiries to the Water Division for more information. Water Division staff have spoken at length with many customers about the complex nature of the new water quality regulation (called DPBR-II, or Stage II of the Disinfection Byproduct Rule), the presence of THMs, causes of THMs, and the steps the water division has been taking to prevent their formation as well as future plans for prevention of THM formation. To continue the process of providing public information, the Water Division will hold a public meeting to discuss water system operations and preventative measures and answer questions. Dr. Bruce Macler, a drinking water toxicology specialist from EPA Region IX, will be on hand along with City staff. This meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 6, 2015, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 955 School Street in Napa.
