DWM continues to surpass all federal and state drinking water quality standards, providing DeKalb County customers with high-quality drinking water.   

The CCR provides detailed information on monitoring data gathered from water quality testing during 2019. DWM serves more than 700,000 customers and is responsible for treating and distributing drinking water and collecting and treating wastewater throughout DeKalb County.
