[ARCHIVED] All County-Run Water Systems Meet or Exceed Federal Standards


FREDERICK, MD – Consumer Confidence Reports for calendar year 2021 are now available on the Frederick County Government website (, according to the Frederick County Division of Water and Sewer Utilities (DWSU). 

The Safe Drinking Water Act requires all community water systems to provide an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to its customers.  Among other things, the report lists the regulated contaminants found in drinking water, as well as health effects information related to violations of the drinking water standards. Drinking water from all 13 of the water systems operated by DWSU meets or exceeds all State and Federal drinking water standards.  

Through the end of June, water customers will see a notice printed in their quarterly billing statement that includes a direct web link to their system’s report on the Frederick County web site.

 “Through the CCR, our residents can stay well informed about regulations that must be met in order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink” said DWSU Director Mark Schweitzer.  “Our staff work hard to ensure the drinking water they produce meets all State and Federal drinking water requirements.  We hope that customers will find these reports educational and helpful in answering questions they may have about the state of their water.”

Customers who are unable to view this report online can contact DWSU at 301-600-1825 to request a paper copy, which will be mailed to them.

For further information or questions about the content of the CCR, contact Regulatory Compliance Department Head Joshua Smith at 301-600-2581 or via e-mail at
