You may have heard of PFAS in the news recently and become concerned. We recognize these concerns and want to help provide information about PFAS in Arvada. Your health and safety are always our highest priority!
To date, we have had no detections in any of our treated drinking water. Please find recent test results here.
Arvada Water Quality performs internal sampling and has so far not detected any of the PFAS compounds tested for in our raw or treated waters (see results). Arvada also participated in Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s 2020 PFAS Sampling Project. We will also be participating in the EPA’s UCMR5 sampling in 2023 which includes many more PFAS compounds than tested for in the past. All of this information will be publicly available when complete.
At the City of Arvada, we work very hard to keep our drinking water safe for all who drink it. Thankfully, we are very early users of our water source. This means our source water hasn’t had as much opportunity to be contaminated. Remember that all water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
