There are several ways to view analysis data for Fort Scott tap water.
Consumer Confidence Report
The City of Fort Scott is proud of the quality of the water that it produces for her citizens. In a continual effort to keep the citizens apprised of that quality, we annually provide a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The contents and format of the Consumer Confidence Report that is made available to the public is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Because of this structure, the CCR can sometimes be confusing in wording to those outside of the water industry. If, after reading the CCR, you have any questions regarding the quality of the water please contact Scott Flater or Michael Mix at the Water Production Plant at 223-5160.
