Is Dallas Drinking Water Safe?

The City says, “You bet it is.”

Dallas water meets or is better than all standards set by the state and federal governments. The State of Texas has designated Dallas a “Superior Public Water System,” the highest rating given by the state. Dallas has received recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency for its quality water supply.

To make sure the water is safe, DWU tests the water 40,000 to 50,000 times every month, including tests for many more chemicals than government standards require.

If you are concerned about your water quality, you may request more information or a free water quality test. Call 311.

Dallas City Hall 3-1-1 Non-Emergency Service

The City of Dallas established the 3-1-1 service several years ago to improve non-emergency services for all citizens. Dallas residents can call 3-1-1, connect on the internet or access the service through a smart phone app. All emergency calls should go directly to the 9-1-1 service.

With the smart phone app, you can take a picture of the problem to send along with its location and description to better identify your specific concern. The free smart phone app is available for your iPhone or android devices. I have personally used the app several times and have found it to be easy to use and a highly effective way to monitor the resolution of your problem.

Once the request is entered, it is assigned a unique service request number used for tracking and accountability purposes. The request is then forwarded to the appropriate department to resolve the concern. You can then monitor the resolution of your problem using the tracking number through the internet or app.

The 3-1-1 service can be used for the following non-emergency city services:

  • Animal/Pets
  • Parks
  • Building Construction
  • Streets & Traffic
  • Health & Environment
  • Tourism
  • Housing & Homes
  • Trash, Graffiti & High Weeds
  • Parking
  • Utilities
  • Garbage roll cart replacement

If you cannot find an appropriate service request category on either the website or mobile app, or you feel that your request is urgent/hazardous in nature, please call 3-1-1 directly. Agents are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to take your call. When in doubt call 3-1-1.

See it, Snap it, Send it (an easier way to 311)

In 2013, the city of Dallas introduced a way for people to use their phones to report graffiti, potholes, illegal dumping and other such urban irritants. The City rolled out the 311 app for iPhone and Android devices.

This free app lets anyone with a smartphone file a complaint directly to the city’s Code Compliance department, document it with a photo, transmit a GPS location and track the city’s response. The app bypasses the 311 call taker, which allows the complaint to be filed in seconds.

To download the app, search for “Dallas 311” in your phone’s app store.
