The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)

Background, guidance, and instructions for community public water systems to prepare a Consumer Confidence Report.

What Every Community Public Water System Must Know

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 Federal and State (TCEQ) 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 (PWS) to generate and make available a CCR to their customers by July 1 of every year, 30 TAC 290.271(a), which includes information from the previous calendar year. This report is also known as an annual water quality report or drinking water quality report. Water systems designated as non-community are not required to provide CCRs. See Texas Drinking Water Watch (DWW) for your system type.
