The City of Statesville has released its 2017 Water Quality Report and results show the City's drinking water meets or exceeds every health standard developed by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Statesville’s Water Quality Report is prepared by the City's Water Resources Department to meet the EPA's National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR). It details drinking water sources, the testing methodology, the substances detected in the water and the levels of those substances.

It can be viewed online at and hard copies can be obtained by calling 704-878-3441.

The report gives the background on Statesville’s water system, explains the testing and many of the terms used in the information, and provides a variety of useful charts.

 "We pride ourselves on providing Statesville with a reliable supply of safe and affordable drinking water," said Chuck Smith, Assistant Director of Statesville's Water Resources Department. "Our mission is to support public safety and public health and to enhance regional economic development.  That means ensuring our water continues to be a good value."

Statesville has been serving water to the community for many decades and is committed to providing its customers with water that meets more than 100 state and federal drinking water standards. The City draws its source water from the Catawba River Basin on Lookout Shoals Lake.
