Water quality report available

PIQUA — The Piqua Municipal Water System has prepared a report to provide information to consumers on the quality of its drinking water. This report is required as part of the Safe Drinking Water Act Reauthorization of 1996 and is required to be delivered to the consumers by July 2021. Included within this report are general health information, water quality test results, how to participate in decisions concerning your drinking water, and water system contacts.

The city of Piqua’s drinking water met all of the Ohio EPA standards for 2020. Constant testing (more than 200 analysis daily) by the staff of certified operators and laboratory personnel ensure the highest standards for drinking water quality are being met at all times.
