Is our water safe?

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission set forth regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in drinking water. Our water is below all state and federal primary drinking water maximum contaminant levels (MCL). In addition to being less than federal or state MCLs, the majority of listed contaminants are not detected at all.
