Helix Water District's newly released 2022 Water Quality Report shows that throughout 2022, we continued to deliver healthy, top-quality drinking water that outperforms federal and state standards.
What’s in water depends on where it comes from. As water travels through rock, soils, lakes and rivers, it takes with it characteristics of those environments. In 2022, 93% of our water came from the Colorado River, 4% came from Northern California through the State Water Project and 3% came from Lake Cuyamaca and creeks in the mountains east of San Diego. We manage the characteristics of each water source through its multistep treatment process.
“I wish all of our customers could meet our treatment staff” said Helix General Manager Brian Olney. “Their expertise and experience goes into every drop of water we produce. They are at the forefront of the water industry and are committed to keeping the communities we serve healthy and happy.”
The 2022 Water Quality Report explains the water quality standards mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state of California and presents Helix’s water quality data for each standard. As in years past, Helix’s tap water outperformed all standards.
