Report: Madison's water meets or exceeds state, federal standards

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- If you live in Madison, you can be confident about the water coming from your faucet.

In its yearly report, Madison Water Utility says the city's water met or exceeded all federal and state standards for health, quality and safety.

MWU water quality manager Joe Grande says the utility goes above and beyond federal and state requirements for testing.

"We're doing a lot of tests, not just to meet the regulations, but to better understand our water," Grande says in a news release. "We take water quality seriously. We're thinking about our customers when we are planning our testing programs, and we're trying to provide the highest quality water possible."
