The Kauai Department of Water’s latest water quality reports reconfirm its earlier indications that pesticide and chemical contamination of drinking water is rare on Kauai.
Where it exists it is primarily from old agricultural or non-agricultural sources.
The testing confirms what county water officials have asserted for years--that the drinking water that feeds the county's water systems is extremely low in contaminants, and that most of those contaminants are from natural sources and things like corrosion of household plumbing systems.
"Our drinking water meets, or is better than, state and federal standards. We spend in excess of $400,000 in chemical and microbial testing each year to assure the safety of your water," the department said in its water quality report.
