Lomita residents can learn about the City’s drinking water and view water quality data in the 2022 Lomita Water Consumer Confidence Report, available online now at www.LomitaWater.com/CCR2022.
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 2022 Consumer Confidence Report is the fourth 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 highlights updates on the Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration system at the Cypress Water Production Facility (CWPF). Made possible through financial support from the Water Replenishment District of Southern California (WRD), the project is the result of grassroots input from Lomita residents. The City listened to residents’ concerns about their drinking water, and this project has been designed specifically to address those concerns. Since the benzene detection in 2019, the City’s only groundwater well has been offline and the City has been importing 100% of its water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD). The GAC filtration system will remove benzene and other constituents from Lomita’s groundwater and allow the City to return to normal operations, providing safe, clean water to Lomita residents with less reliance on imported water.
