Tap water delivered to Phoenix customers again met or surpassed all federal and state drinking water standards, as detailed in the city’s new annual Water Quality Report.

The report gives consumers information on water sources; the treatment process; taste, odor and hardness; and testing for substances contained in multiple source waters; most of which start as snow then travel to rivers and canals before being cleaned and disinfected at Phoenix’s water treatment plants.

Phoenix’s Water Services Department conducts more than 5 million tests and measurements in the city’s treatment and distribution systems each year, and uses state of the art equipment and laboratories to test for more than 100 substances.

The city also submits hundreds of reports each year to the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and the Maricopa County Environmental Services Department. Phoenix’s annual Water Quality Reports are available at phoenix.gov/water.

For more information about Phoenix’s water quality, call (602) 262-5012.
