2022 Water Quality Report from Arlington Water Utilities

The 2022 Water Quality Report from Arlington Water Utilities is now available, with facts and figures about The American Dream City’s tap water. The document, also known as a Consumer Confidence Report, is published online each year to coincide with the nationwide recognition of Drinking Water Week. This year, Drinking Water Week is celebrated May 7-13.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality also requires that a copy of the report be made available to all residents online at ArlingtonTX.gov/waterccr. Results of water testing for regulated substances, such as lead and copper, and some unregulated compounds can be found in the report. Residents also find more information there, including:

 Arlington Water Utilities meets all safety guidelines set by state and federal regulations.

 Arlington Water Utilities tests drinking water throughout the treatment process and at locations all over the city. In 2022, the laboratory analyzed 6,567 samples for 372 different substances.

 Arlington Water Utilities’ 14 lab staff members have a combined 171 years of combined experience and a variety of degrees and TCEQ-issued licenses.

 The report also explains how the City of Arlington is responding to changes at the federal level to regulations regarding lead and copper monitoring for water utilities, as well as information on proposed regulations regarding PFAS or “forever chemicals.”

 A Spanish version of the report will be available by June 1 at ArlingtonTX.gov/waterccre. For questions about the report or to obtain a printed copy, call the Arlington Water Utilities laboratory at 817-575-8984.

 During Drinking Water Week, water utilities, water organizations, government entities, environmental advocates, schools and others throughout North America and beyond will encourage consumers to learn more about the importance of water and water infrastructure.
