Water Quality Report

The Environmental Protection Agency requires public water suppliers that serve the same people year-round (community water systems) to provide consumer confidence reports to their customers. These reports are also known as annual water quality reports. This report by Denver Water summarizes information regarding water sources used, any detected contaminants, compliance within the district, as well as educational information.
