2022 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT
Did you know that 100% of the water we use in our Town of Edgecliff Village is purchased from the City of Fort Worth. The water we consume each day comes from what we know as surface water, lakes in our region as well as reservoirs i.e, the Trinity river. These resources are recharged by mother nature as in rain and what we have come to know as storm water run off. This is produced from the excessive run off from yards, streets, parking lots etc. This means that fertilizer pesticides, animal poop, oils, grease and other chemicals are washed into our creeks, rivers and lakes right into our drinking water. (But don't panic) Yet! These byproducts can be removed through a variety of processes however, like everything else it comes with a price tag. The money that is generated from increased prices to treat raw water into good old clean drinking water will always stop at you and I, Mr. and Ms. Joe consumer. So lets all be good stewards to our most precious resource and do our part in keeping the storm water as clean as possible. And remember its (OUR WATER).
