About Consumer Confidence Reports (CCRs)

Community public water system (PWS) send customers annual reports of drinking water quality called Consumer Confidence Reports (CCRs).

In 1996, Congress amended the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) that added a provision requiring all community water systems deliver to their customers an annual water quality report (Consumer Confidence Report). The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is a document that provides consumers information about the quality of drinking water in an easy to read format. The CCR summarizes information that your water system already collects to comply with regulations. It includes information about the source(s) of water used (i.e., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, or aquifers), chemical contaminants, bacteriological contaminants, compliance with drinking water rules, educational health information, water system contact information and public participation opportunities. TCEQ requirements for the CCR can be found in 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 290 Subchapter H: Consumer Confidence Reports.

The TCEQ requires every community public water system to provide a CCR to their customers by July 1
