Arlington water meets, and in many cases is much better than, Texas and USEPA drinking water standards that are set after robust scientific research and standard setting procedures. In 2019, our laboratory collected 7,101 samples and performed 16,117 tests monitoring 277 different analytes. The results of these tests are featured in our 2019 Consumer Confidence Report, available since May 2020.

Past Consumer Confidence Reports

Recently, a website article quoting a 2017 Environmental Working Group publication raised questions about Arlington's water quality. The study compares drinking water providers based on public health goals set by the California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). In many cases, these goals are radical departures from the USEPA standards. The USEPA standards are set to provide a national standard that spans the enormity of the United States with vigorously scientifically researched standards to provide consistency and enforcement.
