Lomita residents can learn about the City’s drinking water and view water quality data in the 2021 Lomita Water Consumer Confidence Report, available online now at www.LomitaWater.com/CCR2021.
The water quality report link has been directly distributed to Lomita Water customers via a water bill insert 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 2021 Consumer Confidence Report is the third 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 updates on ongoing projects in the Lomita Water System. The report highlights the progress on the 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. The City continues to reach project milestones, and the Cypress Water Production Facility is projected to come back online in Summer of 2022. As infrastructure updates are currently underway, in-person tours of the Lomita Water System remain on pause until the construction site is safe for members of the public.
