The City of Branson’s Annual Water Quality Report for the 2019 calendar year indicates that the drinking water in Branson meets or exceeds all of the Missouri Department of Natural Resource requirements and standards for safe public drinking water.
The report is a requirement of all water systems, both municipal and private, by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to inform the residents about the quality of their drinking water and to allow customers to see the actual elements in the water, based on tests performed during the year. According to EPA, the report must mention any violations of water quality standards that might have occurred during 2019. The City of Branson public water system had no violations.
Copies of the report can be found on our website http://bransonmo.gov/299/Reports#water. The report will be mailed to all Branson water customers by way of their June water bills and can also be picked up at the Branson Utilities Department (616 West Pacific Street), City Hall (110 W. Maddux Street), or the Taneyhills Community Library (200 South 4th St).
