IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
CITY OF BELMONT HAS NOT MET MONITORING REQUIREMENTS
We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During the compliance period specified in the table below, we did not complete all monitoring or testing for the contaminants listed and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time.
