CLOVIS, N.M., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New Mexico American Water recently announced the results of its 2009 water quality reports for its Clovis service area.

The reports show that water quality meets state and federal standards for all of its Clovis area systems. New Mexico American Water has about 60,000 customers within the state.

"We are pleased to report that the water supplied to our customers is of higher quality than required by state and federal drinking water standards," said Kathy Wright, general manager of New Mexico American Water. "Our team works hard everyday to ensure the highest quality product for our customers. These results are a testament to that effort."

The annual reports measure the quality of New Mexico American Water's water against the standards established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state of New Mexico. The report details drinking water sources, the testing methodology, the substances detected in the water and the levels of those substances. Commonly asked questions and answers concerning drinking water are also included.
