Analysis of Performance

Drinking water production is a heavily regulated process. Our goal is always to do better than what is required by regulation. Anything less than 100% indicates there was a violation of regulatory standard during the reporting period. The metric is reported as a percentage of time during the reporting period that the water system was out of compliance with regulations. We achieved compliance 100% of the time in Q4 2023.
