Providing safe and healthy drinking water to residents of the Scott Lake Community is of the utmost importance. All water quality related complaints reported to the office are taken seriously and are logged and tracked.
It has come to our attention that a number of residents are sharing their water quality concerns on various community group Facebook pages rather than reporting them to the office. All questions, concerns, and complaints should be submitted to the Scott Lake Maintenance Company office so that we can follow-up directly.
On Wednesday, May 19, 2021 our local contractor will be onsite to take water samples from service locations where residents have submitted concerns that their water is unsafe or undrinkable. You will not need to be home in order to have a sample taken as the sample will be taken from an outside faucet. You will simply need to report to the office between Tuesday, May 11th – Monday, May 17th that you wish to have a sample taken from your service location. Requests for this water sampling can be submitted by email to email@example.com or by calling (360) 352-4787.
Scott Lake drinking water is tested regularly in accordance with Department of Health regulations. Lab results from Department of Health required testing can be found through the Sentry Internet on the Department of Health website at https://fortress.wa.gov/doh/eh/portal/odw/si/Intro.aspx
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires that a Water Quality Report be made on an annual basis. The Scott Lake 2020 Water Quality Report can be found on our website at the following link Scott-Lake-2020.pdf (scottlake.net)
Aesthetic characteristics may be present in your drinking water but do not typically pose a public health threat. Learn more about color, taste and odor problems in drinking water through a publication made by the Department of Health “Color, taste and odor problems in drinking water“
Please note: There are no failed tests or any other indicators that Scott Lake drinking water is unsafe or unhealthy. This service is being provided as a courtesy to those customers who believe that there may be an issue with their drinking water.
