Water Quality Annual Report
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) provides some of the highest quality drinking water in the nation because it comes from pristine, protected mountain sources: the Cedar River and South Fork Tolt River watersheds.
Each year, SPU provides customers with information about the quality of their drinking water, as required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Learn more about your healthy water and water system:

Seattle has some of the best tasting water in the nation and it’s a bargain – less than a penny per gallon delivered to your tap.
