08. How will I know if there is chromium in my drinking water?

Your public water system's annual water quality report will provide information if total chromium is detected in the drinking water it delivers. The water quality report is sent to customers by July 1 of each year and may also be found on your public water system's website. Some water utilities have conducted monitoring specifically for chromium-6. Contact your public water system to find out if this information is available.

Consumers served by private wells can have their water tested by a state certified laboratory. You can find information on how to sample for chromium-6 and where to send samples by contacting your state water laboratory certification officer.
