2018 Drinking Water Quality Report in Homes Now

If you haven’t already received the 2018 Drinking Water Quality Report, it should be in your mailbox any day now.

The 2018 Drinking Water Quality Report gives you a detailed look at water quality in Southlake. The most important information you’ll find in the report is that drinking water in Southlake is safe.

This document is a technical tool the City uses to provide a summary of tests required by state and federal regulations. Some of the tests listed in the report show results for copper and lead levels, along with other regulated contaminants.

It’s important to note the test results show only trace amounts of contaminants measured in our water, well below the maximum levels established by the state.

Aside from providing test data the water report also details information about a number of topics you may not have thought about as having an impact on our water quality. Litter and polluted storm drains can have a negative impact on water quality in our streams, creeks and ponds. In addition to keeping our drinking water and stormwater clean, help keep wastewater-free of debris. Flushable wipes, cotton swabs and paint are some of the most common offenders flushed into the sewer system every day.

The report is a great one-stop-shop for your water quality questions. Find out how you can monitor your water consumption at home with the Eye on Water app, see when your lawn watering day is and find out how you can help protect your pipes.

Since its inception, the Water Quality Report continues to be a great source of information about Southlake’s water quality and the steps the City takes to maintain that quality. Download an extra copy of the report here.
