Water Quality Rating Model

We’ve developed a Water Quality Rating (WQR) model with the input of MassDEP which simplifies the complex task of interpreting the overall water quality of a private water system while answering the important question of whether the water is safe for consumption.

This rating system assigns a single score to the overall water quality of a private water system. The rating is based on a combination of primary and secondary water quality standards defined by the U.S. EPA as well as factoring in the MassDEP Office of Research and Standards Guidelines (ORSG).

Our easy-to-understand numerical system allows you to see how your water compares to bottled and public water and drinking water standards.

Water Quality Rating Model
91–100 Healthy
Meets all health-related limits and goals for drinking water defined by EPA. No health risks, no aesthetic or infrastructure risks.

76–90 Safe with Risk
Meets all health-related drinking water limits but: one or more infrastructure or aesthetic standards are exceeded and/or presents some health risk.

0–75 Unhealthy
Does not meet drinking water mandatory limits. Any one or more primary health-related limits, goals or advisories is exceeded.
