Posted on 04/27/2022
M&O LogoDear Water Customers:

The City of Pullman Water Department is pleased to present a summary on the quality of the water provided to you during the past year. The federal Environmental Protection Agency Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires that utilities issue an annual “Consumer Confidence” report to customers in addition to other notices that may also be required by law. This report details where our water comes from, what it contains, and the risks that water testing and water treatment are designed to prevent. The city of Pullman is committed to providing you with a safe and reliable water supply. Informed customers are our best allies in maintaining safe drinking water.

The city of Pullman’s drinking water meets or surpasses most federal and state drinking water standards.

Call us for more information about the next opportunity for public participation in decisions about our drinking water, or find out more on the Internet at http://www.pullman-wa.gov.

In 2021, the City of Pullman Water Department pumped, treated, and distributed over 979 million gallons of water. The average daily use per capita for the year was 99.6 gallons per person.
