The Safe Drinking Water Act passed in 1996 requires that public drinking water suppliers send out annual Consumer Confidence Reports outlining the quality of drinking water provided to consumers. The report details where your drinking water comes from, what it contains and the risks our water testing and treatment are designed to protect. The 2004 Water Quality Report was mailed to all billed water customers by July 1, 2005. It is also available on the Town of Amherst website (see link below) or copies may be requested by calling the Amherst Department of Public Works at 256-4050.
