Water Quality Reports

The Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department is proud to supply clean, safe, and reliable drinking water for all its customers.

In 2019 (the year the 2020 Water Quality Report covers), the water from your tap met all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state drinking water health standards. This Water Quality Report details where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set by the regulatory agencies. To see the most recent report, please click on the 2020 Water Quality Report below.

Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP)

The 1996 Amendments to the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act brought about new pollution prevention and protection measures to help ensure clean and safe drinking water by assessing potential contamination and promoting protection of States' drinking water sources.  These amendments direct states to enact Source Water Protection Programs to protect their drinking water sources from contamination.   The initial step in the development of the program was to prepare an inventory and assessment of each water supply watershed in the state.  This step was called the Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP).  Information on the metro Atlanta region's Source Water Assessment Plan (which includes Forsyth County) can be found in the links below:
