KPUD drinking water meets or exceeds all water quality standards as set forth in the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act. The Washington State Department of Health considers drinking water that meets these water quality standards safe for human consumption.
In addition to meeting or exceeding these standards, our drinking water supplies are tested monthly for bacteria and other contaminants in compliance with the Act. Annual reports of water quality can be viewed in the Consumer Confidence Reports section of our website.
According to federal, state, and county drinking water regulations, the presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.
