The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires water suppliers to provide annual drinking water quality reports to their customers. This requirement was adopted in the 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. The water operators in Batesburg-Leesville are responsible for ensuring that the drinking water you receive is of the highest quality possible, meeting or exceeding all federal and state drinking water standards.
To accomplish this, monthly water quality samples are collected by laboratory technicians from various locations throughout our distribution system. We are required to perform a range of analytical tests on treated water samples using the most up-to-date methodology approved by SCDHEC and EPA with state-of-the-art instrumentation to deliver the most accurate results.
The Town of Batesburg-Leesville publishes the Annual Water Quality Report to show the quality of water delivered to your tap. These reports give consumers valuable information to make personal health-based decisions regarding their drinking water consumption. These Water Quality Reports are for Batesburg-Leesville System No. 1 which is located inside the town and those customers adjacent to the Town of Batesburg-Leesville.
