New Video Discusses Water Quality in Hillsborough

Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017

The Town of Hillsborough’s latest service video focuses on the quality of the town’s drinking water and provides information on testing.

In addition to providing free testing of water at customers’ homes, the Hillsborough Water Treatment Plant routinely tests for more than 150 contaminants in the town’s drinking water according to federal and state laws. Two lab-certified operators perform daily bacterial checks at the plant, and plant employees also conduct 24-hour monitoring and evaluation of the town’s drinking water. Monthly, the town collects 15 bacteriological samples throughout the water distribution system. The town’s utilities inspector also collects five samples every week to help maintain disinfection levels at the extremities of the town’s water lines.

The town does not send testing kits through the mail, as noted in a news release distributed in the fall. An annual water quality report is available on the town’s website. See the water quality video on the town’s YouTube channel.
