Annual water quality report released

May 8, 2017

The Water Quality Report for 2016, regarding the quality of drinking water on NIU’s DeKalb campus, has been released. This report details the source of NIU’s water, what it contains, and how it compares with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state health standards. NIU Facilities Management and Campus Services says that the campus drinking water meets or surpasses all federal and state drinking water standards.

NIU purchases its water from the City of DeKalb. NIU is fortunate to have them as a provider, as well as a working partner, as their Utility Division is a role model for other municipalities, especially regarding their water quality program. NIU’s places drinking water as a top priority. We are vigilant in our testing, monitoring, and action to provide clean and safe water to our faculty, staff, students and visitors.

For questions regarding this report, contact Joe Hoiness or Randy Skinner, our licensed water operators, at 815-753-1151 or Justin Bend at 815-753-6090.
