Lomita residents can learn about the City’s drinking water and view water quality data in the 2020 Lomita Water Consumer Confidence Report, available online now at www.LomitaWater.com/CCR2020.
The water quality report link has been directly distributed to Lomita Water customers via a postcard to paper bill recipients and via email to eBilling recipients. Those who would like to receive a physical copy of the report can call the City of Lomita at 310-325-7110.
The 2020 Consumer Confidence Report is the second that Lomita Water is distributing electronically by sharing a link to the online report. Electronic delivery minimizes printing and mailing costs associated with the report and reduces paper consumption, while complying with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) according to a 2013 interpretation by the State of California.
The Consumer Confidence Report is an annual water quality report required by the SDWA. The purpose of the Consumer Confidence Report is to raise customers’ awareness of the quality of their drinking water, where their drinking water comes from, what it takes to deliver water to their homes, and the importance of protecting drinking water sources.
In addition to including water quality data, this year’s report includes information about new projects in the Lomita Water System. The report highlights the project kick off of a new Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration system at the Cypress Water Production Facility (CWPF). The project comes as a result of grassroots input directly from Lomita residents regarding their drinking water, and the system has been designed specifically to address that feedback. On March 4, 2021, the City of Lomita held a small event commemorating the kickoff of the new GAC project at CWPF. Although the City was unable to host members of the public due to COVID-19 restrictions, video was captured of the event so Lomita residents could still share in the excitement of the kickoff from the safety of home.
