United Water Issues Annual Report

United Water recently released its annual Consumer Confidence Report for customers in Bergen and Hudson Counties.

According to the report, United Water received no violations in 2011 for contaminants in its local supply.

Jim Glozzy, United Water's vice president and general manager, said the legally-required report is an "important tool" for educating their customers.

“We’re pleased to advise our customers that our water continues to meet or exceed all state and federal regulations for safe drinking water,” Glozzy said.

United Water's local supply comes from the Oradell, Woodcliff Lake and Lake Tappan Reservoirs in Bergen County and Lake DeForest in Rockland County, N.Y., as well as some wells. The reservoirs hold approximately 14 billion gallons of water, according to the report.

Local United Water customers receive an average of 112.74 million gallons of water each day.
