Water district passes health inspection with perfect results

The Hamilton Branch Community Services District passed its most recent health inspection with flying colors.

On Sept. 19, Steve Watson, staff engineer for the California Department of Public Health, conducted his regular inspection and found everything in top-notch condition. General manager Mike Roarty said that typically Watson has at least one suggestion for improvement, but this year he had none.

Watson inspected two water tanks and the springhouse. Roarty said the inspector commented that everything looked “pristine” and that he was very pleased with how the district operates.

“This is just one example of why we have the best-tasting water in California. We do everything in our power to comply with what the state requires of us, and it is reflected in our water quality and inspection results,” said Chief Operator J.D. Hackett.
