Water Quality

Where Does My Water Come From?

The City of Auburn purchases the water from Barrow County Water Authority. We also have an emergency tap that allows us to receive water from Gwinnett County.

Is Our Water System Meeting Other Rules That Govern Our Operations?

EPD and EPA require us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We submit monthly water samples for Bacteriological analysis in accordance with our Operating Permit. All samples tested satisfactory.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-4791).

When is Testing Done?

The water for the City of Auburn is tested daily from several sampling points throughout the City to insure quality drinking water. We test the Chlorine which the state requires us to maintain a .20ppm (parts per million gallons). We also test Fluoride which the state requires Auburn to maintain below 2.0ppm and no less than.5ppm. The PH is tested with the range of a 1 being Acidic and a 10 being Alkaline. We strive to be at a 7 which is neutral. We test for Bacterial agents thru the EPD lab in Atlanta. All results are averages from multiple tests for the entire month some daily results might be higher or lower.
