Pease report

New Castle report

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires community water systems to deliver a Consumer Confidence Report, also known as an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report, to their customers each year. The City’s 2021 reports, which were recently mailed to water customers, provide information about their drinking water quality from the previous year of sampling including a summary of detected contaminants, compliance and educational information. There is an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report tailored specifically to each of the Portsmouth, Pease Tradeport and the New Castle water systems.

“It is very important for our customers to understand the quality of our drinking water and the extent that it is monitored for compliance,” said Deputy Director of Public Works, Brian Goetz. “Our staff continue to revise these reports based on customer feedback and regulatory requirements in order to best communicate the water quality of the drinking water systems that the City manages. There are specific sections dedicated to the ongoing monitoring of PFAS compounds in our supply sources as well as information about system upgrades recently implemented to improve water quality”
