City water report shows no problems

Results from the City of Tulsa’s 2017 Water Quality Report show that the water system continues to deliver water that is safe to drink and free of bacteria.

The annual water quality report is required to be mailed to all water customers under the provisions of the federal 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act and its amendments. The city samples and analyzes its treated drinking water throughout the year to make sure it meets or exceeds federal standards. The report concluded that tests conducted on treated water during 2016 showed that the levels of all contaminants continued to fall below the regulatory levels prescribed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Water Quality Report is included with the June utility bills mailed to customers within the City of Tulsa and is also provided to municipal water systems that purchase water from Tulsa. You can request a copy from the City of Tulsa’s Customer Care Center by calling 311, or 918-596-7777 from outside the city limits. The water quality report also can be viewed in either English or Spanish at cityoftulsa.org.

The City of Tulsa Water and Sewer Department operates two water treatment plants that receive their water from lakes Oologah, Spavinaw, Eucha and Hudson. Water samples from these lakes also are analyzed to determine source water quality.
