The latest edition of Spencer Municipal Utilities’ annual Consumer Confidence Report on water quality has been prepared and is being distributed.

The report provides details of drinking water testing conducted during the calendar year 2011. SMU regularly tests over 80 drinking water contaminants, and the 2011 data again shows no violations of EPA rules for water quality.

“Our wells are based in an aquifer that is a fairly clean source, we don’t have to do much treatment on the water as some other communities that rely on other sources,” says Amanda Gloyd, SMU marketing & community relations manager. In addition to showing the result of water testing from last year, the Consumer Confidence Report also gives customers details on SMU’s water source, treatment methods, and other important health information.

At the end of May, SMU included a copy of the 2012 report in regular utility bill mailings. Copies of the report are also available at the SMU Customer Service Center at 712 Grand Avenue, and on the SMU Web site at
