Water Quality Report

The City of East Tawas is part of an authority - Huron Shore Regional Utility Authority - which provides water treatment services to East Tawas, Tawas City, Baldwin Township, AuSable Township, and Oscoda Township. Every year the staff of HSRUA provides us with an Annual Water Quality Report  that is designed to inform our residents about the quality of water services they deliver to you every day. Their goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water and they want you to understand the efforts they make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.
