Water Treatment

Drinking Water Quality conducts comprehensive monitoring programs for compliance with the State of Colorado and the United States Environmental Protection Agency's rules and regulations. The division implements the City's Drinking Water and Cross Connection Control programs.

The City of Arvada goes to great lengths to make sure our drinking water is of high quality and meets all federal and state water quality standards. Each year the City takes 70,000 tests to demonstrate compliance with regulations, and for additional assurance of the quality of the water. Additionally, we have continuous automatic monitoring at both treatment plants and in the distribution system, which annually provides over 300,000 results to assist with the treatment process.

The City of Arvada provides all customers with an annual Water Quality Report. The purpose of the report is to share information and inform our customers about the high quality of their drinking water. We want you to know where your water comes from, what it contains and how it compares to stringent federal water quality standards. The City of Arvada's drinking water has met or exceeded the standards regulated by the State of Colorado and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
