Groundwater is the sole source of water for the WMWC. This water is obtained through three wells located within the development. WMWC provides a safe and dependable supply of drinking water to our customers. WMWC currently meets all Drinking Water Standards as set forth in the California Safe Drinking Water Act and the regulations adopted by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for safety, taste and appearance.
WMWC adds chlorine to all groundwater delivered to customers to ensure the safety of the water supply. Chlorine is a disinfectant that effectively treats both bacteria and viruses, and is required by the State. Chlorine levels in the WMWC system are tested weekly to ensure appropriate levels are maintained. Chlorine is added to the water from our three wells before it is stored in our two 500,000 gallon tanks.
We do not add fluoride to our water.
