The Northern Area Water Authority has released its 2016 Water Quality report. NAWA is a joint venture between the cities of Vandalia and Tipp City to provide drinking water to both communities.
The Water Quality Report is a requirement of the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1996. The purpose of the report is to provide the public with information concerning the quality of drinking water during the previous calendar year.
The Northern Area Water Authority (NAWA) obtains its public drinking water supply from buried sand and gravel aquifers associated with the Great Miami River. NAWA currently utilizes six production wells to draw water from the aquifer. Well water is pumped to the treatment plant where it is run through sand filters for Iron and Manganese removal. Nanofiltration membranes are used for the reduction or removal of hardness, viruses, and other contaminants. Chlorine is added for disinfection, Fluoride is added for dental health, and Orthophosphate is added to minimize corrosion or scaling in the distribution system.
NAWA has a current, unconditioned license to operate its Public Water System issued by the Ohio EPA on January 1, 2017.
