The Wednesday Wetness

Rockville’s water once again met or exceeded all federal water quality regulations limits, the city’s Department of Public Works said in the Annual Drinking Water Quality Report released July 1. Per the City of Rockville: “The city’s water treatment plant, on the banks of the Potomac River, serves 70% of Rockville, or approximately 13,000 accounts and 52,000 community members. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission serves the remainder of the city.

Plant operators actively monitor water quality to ensure protective levels of chlorine and corrosion control, which prevents lead and copper in distribution pipes from leaching into drinking water. The plant incurred one monitoring violation in 2023. Due to a clerical error, the plant did not monitor or test for Phase II/V Synthetic Organic Contaminants for the third quarter (July 1-Sept. 30). This was not an emergency and did not require customers to take any action. More information is available in the report.
