Drinking Water Quality Report
The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) inspects the quality of Staunton’s drinking water, and the Public Works Department publishes a Drinking Water Quality Report annually.
The City’s drinking water consistently meets all water quality standards and regulations. In the most recent Water Quality Report, Staunton’s Water Treatment Plant achieved the Silver award through the VDH Office of Drinking Water Virginia Optimization Program. This program recognizes those who provide quality water that exceeds minimum regulatory standards and operate water systems in an exemplary manner.
Questions about your water, its source, or how it is treated should be directed to the water treatment plant's chief operator at 540.332.3961.
