In most cases leaks can be scheduled for repair. The Utilities Dept. will notify affected residents when there will

Does my water need additional treatment?
For most people, the answer is no. Safe Drinking Water Act standards are set to ensure that your tap water
is safe. People who have medical conditions that might put them at special risk should discuss the need for .
a water filter with their doctors. All public water systems are required to complete an Annual Drinking Water
Quality Report and distribute this report to system users.
Home Treatment Devices
Many stores and companies sell various home treatment devices, ranging from small faucet-mounted filters
to “whole-house” systems to water softeners. While we cannot recommend specific brands or products,
the following information should be helpful. For specific project information, contact NSF International,
Consumer Report, or the device manufacturer. Maintenance is important with any home treatment device,
as an inadequately maintained filter can actually reduce water quality.

CLARKDALE WATER USE
In 2006 when we purchased the Clarkdale water system along with Cottonwood, our average consumption
was 11,000 gallons per household. The water usage was approximately 46% higher than the amount of
water the average American used during that same period.
Below is a chart showing water usage in Clarkdale for the years 2007, 2008, and 2009. Clarkdale residents
have made great strides in lowering water usage over these last three years. In 2007, 2008, and 2009 the
average usage was approximately 5,000 gallons per household per month, (using 2.4 persons as the average
household figure). The updated U.S. Census reports Clarkdale population at 4,097 and a capita of 2.3 per
household. Using these figures, the 2014 average usage is 4,924 gallons per household per month.
