Zero Violations in 2016
The Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) delivers high quality drinking water. This annual water quality report is our
opportunity to explain to you exactly what that means. Included in this report are the results of our continual
water testing for more than 200 water constituents during the 2016 calendar year, information about the water source,
treatment, monitoring and more.
Formally known as the Consumer Confidence Report, this document meets a Federal regulation passed
by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) as part of the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments, which require many actions to protect
drinking water and its sources. The EPA, state regulators, and water providers work together to meet the national
health-based standards for drinking water, which protect consumers against naturally-occurring
and man-made contaminants.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) oversees water systems in our state, ensuring contaminant
testing, reviewing plans for water system improvements, conducting on-site inspections and sanitary surveys, and providing
training and technical assistance.
