Consumer Confidence Report 

The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is the centerpiece of the right-to-know provisions in the 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. 

What is a Consumer Confidence Report? 

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment describes the CCR as "a written document that is to be designed to be easily readable and understandable by your customers.

The CCR provides the opportunity for the public water system, the State of Colorado and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to work together to educate consumers about the sources and quality of their drinking water, and to increase their involvement in decisions about it. Educated consumers are more likely to help protect their drinking water sources and to understand the true costs of delivering drinking water."
