PUBLIC HEALTH GOALS REPORT PUBLIC MEETING
Date/Time: Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 5-6 pm
Location: Oxnard Water Multi-Purpose Room, 251 South Hayes Avenue, Oxnard, California
All interested members of the public or stakeholders are invited to review Oxnard’s 2019 Water Quality Public Health Goals Triennial Report (PHG Report) and learn about Oxnard’s water quality testing programs. At the meeting, water quality staff will provide an overview and be available to answer questions about the report.
What is a Public Health Goals Report?
As a water supplier, Oxnard Water must prepare a special report for the public every three years with specific information about constituents detected in the water relative to Public Health Goals. The report requires water systems to address only those contaminants that have a Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) or Public Health Goal (PHG) and an existing Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL). Contaminants that do not have an MCLG or PHG, such as haloacetic acids (HAAs), unregulated contaminants, and contaminants with secondary standards, are not required to be addressed in the report.
Public Health Goals are non-enforceable goals established by the Cal-EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). Testing results are reported annually in the Drinking Water Consumer Confidence Report. Each Triennial Public Health Goals Report contains more details about each constituent detected in the water.
