The City of Greenville recently sent its latest Consumer Confidence Water Report to every customer.
In addition to providing water to Greenville residents and businesses, plus the federal prison, Greenville provides water to Donnellson, Panama, Smithboro, Royal Lake, Mulberry Grove and at the Coffeen power plant.
Water Plant Supervisor Jim Sutton said the city issued a clean report. He said the report is required by the EPA and is designed to instill confidence in the public that their water supply is safe and that the EPA is monitoring the quality.
Sutton said there were no questions about the quality of the Greenville water and everything was in compliance.
