The 2020 Water Quality Report is Now Available

The 2020 Water Quality Report will arrive at  your doorstep soon. The report takes a deep dive into the quality of water in Southlake.

“The City of Southlake’s goal is to provide a safe and a better quality of life to our residents in all areas, and water is no different,” Environmental Services Coordinator Ashley Carlisle said. “We are proud of the high standards of drinking water the City has set and are proud to send out water quality reports to show how we’re meeting the high standards set out for us.”

The report provides information about Southlake drinking water such as where the water comes from, whether the water is safe and what contaminants might be in the water.

Water samples were provided to the Environmental Protection Agency for analysis. The United States currently monitors 100 contaminants within the water supply and 91 must meet regulations to determine water safety and quality.

The report also highlights information about how to properly dispose of medicines, paint, pesticides, cleaning products and cooking oil through a partnership program with the Fort Worth Environmental Collections Center as well as resources available through the City of Southlake.

To help track your water usage, residents can download the EyeOnWater app, which provides 24/7 access to view water consumption. The City also offers a W.I.S.E. Guys program to help identify leaks in irrigation systems and the F.O.G. program, which provides information on fats, oils and grease build up in drains.

The water quality report is available to view online here. For questions about the water quality report, please contact Southlake Public Works at 817-748-8082.
