Water Source & Quality

State law requires that public water systems provide a report of water quality to the public prior to July 1st each year.  When the report is complete, the City includes a statement on customer utility bills, that the report is available and how to receive a copy.  A notice is also published in the newspaper.

Public water systems are required to keep these reports for three years.  The latest reports are found below.  Please contact us at 308-630-6258 if you have questions or need additional information.
