San Simeon Creek
Your Drinking Water
The CCSD Water Department pumps water from both the Santa Rosa Creek and San Simeon Creek aquifers. We ensure the delivery of high-quality water throughout the District by continuously testing for a variety of constituents as required by State and Federal regulations. Our technicians perform rigorous testing in the District's State-certified laboratory.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may contain very small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the USEPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791.
