We are required by law to meet all drinking water standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Clean Water Act (1972).

Our certified water operators sample water throughout the system daily and perform over 150 tests for new wells. They work closely with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and the Maricopa County Environmental Services Department to ensure all drinking water standards are met 365 days a year, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day.

Challenges

Buckeye relies almost entirely on groundwater. The Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) concentrations (typically calcium, sodium, arsenic and magnesium) that occur naturally in our water, are not aesthetically (smell, taste, hardness) pleasing to customers. TDS is not considered a risk to human health so the EPA has only established a secondary standard as a guideline to assist public water systems with managing their drinking water for these aesthetic considerations. 

Some other naturally occurring minerals, such as arsenic, fluoride, and nitrates (nitrates can be naturally occurring or man-made) have a primary standard  set by the EPA.

Despite these challenges, Buckeye’s drinking water meets or surpasses all standards set by the EPA.
