Water quality is continuously monitored and tested thousands of times each year by both a private testing lab in Mt. Juliet and by the state certified lab at Gallatin’s water treatment plant. Gallatin was given a 99% score on a recent Sanitary Survey by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, which evaluates the water treatment and distribution system. Gallatin also rates highly on the state required Consumer Confidence Report, showing state and federal water quality levels for contaminants like lead, copper, nitrates, and turbidity (water particulates) meet or exceed state and federal standards for purity.
Each year, GPU publishes the Gallatin Drinking Water Quality Report that summarizes water quality information for the year as required under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and consistently meets or exceeds quality standards for drinking water.
