Water Quality Report

Annual Water Quality Report

The purpose of this water quality report is to provide you with information regarding your drinking water. We want to keep you informed about the water and services that we have delivered to you over the past year and we are pleased to provide you with the 2021 Annual Water Quality Report. The most important part is to let you know that your water is safe for drinking. We also want to take this opportunity to give you a little more background on your water system.

Daily Water Quality Report

The Stones River Water Treatment Plant conducts multiple tests during the day on the quality of the source water, water as it is passing through the treatment process and finished water before it is sent to the distribution system to customers. Monday – Friday we post results for chlorine, hardness, fluoride, turbidity and pH on the Department’s Facebook page and website. 

In addition, our water quality laboratory conducts tests throughout the week on samples collected at residences, schools and businesses throughout the distribution system. All personnel have MWRD issued identification and at no time do we contract out the collection of samples from residences. Only MWRD personnel will collect samples from residences in the system. Please feel free to ask for identification if anyone asks to collect a water sample from your home or business. If they cannot produce the identification, please contact MWRD at (615) 848-3222.

If you have any questions about the following reports, please contact Alan Cranford at (615) 848-3222 between 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. For water quality concerns please call (615) 848- 3222, 24-hours per day seven days per week.

Where does my water come from?

Your water comes from two surface water locations. One water source is the East Fork of the Stones River and the other source is the J. Percy Priest Lake. Our goal is to protect our water from contaminants based on geologic factors and human activities near the water source. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) prepared a Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP) Report found on the TDEC website and includes water supplies including Murfreesboro Water Resources Department (MWRD).
