Tennessee American Water’s Annual Water Quality Report Available Online

Thursday, March 22, 2018

Tennessee American Water announces that the company’s 2017 Consumer Confidence Reports (Water Quality Reports) are available to customers online.  In addition, Tennessee American Water has once again earned the Directors Award through the Partnership for Safe Water, marking the 18th consecutive year the utility has achieved this level of surpassing standards. 

The annual water quality report, also known as the consumer confidence report, is a performance measure of the quality of water.  These measures are established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.  The report describes local drinking water sources, testing conducted on the water, substances detected, and the levels of those substances. 

The Partnership for Safe Water is a voluntary utility program with the mission of improving drinking water quality by optimizing operations. In the state of Tennessee, nine utilities participate in the Partnership’s treatment plant optimization program. Across the U.S., about 300 utilities participate in the Partnership. 

“For over 130 years we have been the primary water provider for the Chattanooga area and have always been committed to the highest standards for water quality to our customers,” said Tennessee American Water President Val Armstrong.  “In 2018, our goal is to be 21 times better than the U.S. average for water quality standards.  Participating in the Partnership for Safe Water is one way we exceed standards.”

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
