Thanks to SDWA – The Safe Drinking Water Act our water sources are monitored and each water supplier must post a quality report on their website. Even though it's monitored you should always investigate what is in your water since every household has unique health standards.
Often before making a move to a new home, we have a laundry list of must haves for health and safety. Is your water on that list? It is one of the utilities we need to turn on before making our move. Water, you use it to shower, water your gardens, cook and drink with. The must have in daily living. Find out where your water comes from? How it is treated? What does the annual report say?
When moving to a new area ask your Realtor which water district your new home may fall into. He or she can help you get the information you need to look up the information. Look on the website provided by your local water district for all the information related to your water safety. Water is our life source.

(Las Virgenes Municipal Water District serves a population of over 65,000 across a 122 square mile area in western Los Angeles County, including the incorporated cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills and Westlake Village as well as several unincorporated areas.
The United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world. However, national statistics don't tell you specifically about the quality and safety of the water coming out of your tap. That's because drinking water quality varies from place to place, depending on the condition of the source water from which it is drawn and the treatment it receives.
Every community water supplier must provide an annual report (sometimes called a consumer confidence report) to its customers. The report provides information on your local drinking water quality, including the water's source, the contaminants found in the water, and how consumers can get involved in protecting drinking water. If you have been looking for specific information about your drinking water, this annual report will provide you with the information you need to begin your investigation.
