Good afternoon – this past Thursday, June 16, 2022, during routine water quality testing a City water well located at Gilman Road and Camino Arroyo tested for nitrate levels at 12 milligrams per liter which exceeded the maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 milligrams per liter.
We are happy to report that after following strict State protocols and testing, the City of Gilroy water supply is within all State standards for safe consumption. We will continue monitoring levels to ensure our water system provides quality water for our community.
The State Division of Drinking Water has determined that the previous restrictions may now be rescinded and claimed an “All Clear” for our community. Please read the Drinking Water Notice below as it will provide the health and safety information pertinent to this situation.
