(Forsyth County, GA) Forsyth County's 2021 water supply met all the drinking water health standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Georgia, according to the County's 2022 Water Quality Report.

The report findings were released on May 27 by the Forsyth County Department of Water & Sewer.

Most of the water that runs to Forsyth County households comes from Lake Lanier; a small portion comes from the Chattahoochee River via Fulton County.

According to the report, the EPA, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Forsyth County perform 1,300 tests per year on tap water to monitor for contaminants, including bacteria, metals, nitrates and pesticides.

In the report, citizens can find information from 2021 on where the County’s water comes from, what it contains and how the water compares to standards set by the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

A paper copy of the report will be mailed with County water and sewer bills. Customers receiving electronic bills will be provided with a link to the report in their monthly invoice.

Copies of the report are also available in the Department of Water & Sewer office in the County Administration Building at 110 East Main Street, Suite 150, in Cumming.
