(HARTFORD, CT) The Metropolitan District (MDC) announced today that the drinking water provided to its customers once again met or exceeded all state and federal standards.

The 2021 Water Quality Report is required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Safe Drinking Water Act.  The 2021 Water Quality Report was mailed out to MDC customers this month.  Additionally, a copy of the report is available online to view and download on the MDC’s website at

In 2021, the MDC’s potable water was once again in compliance with all state and federal drinking standards. The report includes a description of the MDC’s source waters, treatment techniques, a list of substances the water is tested for and more.

Each year the MDC conducts over 140,000 tests on the water obtained from its reservoirs, treatment plants and other sampling sites throughout the distribution system.  In 2021, the MDC distributed an average of 47.6 million gallons of water per day to a population of approximately 400,000.

“The MDC strives to provide our customers with the highest quality drinking water. Each MDC employee plays a critical role in protecting, treating and delivering our water from the source to the tap,” stated MDC CEO Scott Jellison.
