Is Dallas Drinking Water Safe?

By . May 2, 2017City Services

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.
