If you live in the Denver Water service area, your water’s journey starts as mountain snowpack and ends up as clean, great-tasting water delivered right to your tap. That’s no accident.

The Environmental Protection Agency has dubbed August as National Water Quality Month to remind us all how important it is to protect our water, and water quality experts have been doing their part in Denver for more than a century. The photo shown was taken in the water quality lab of the Denver Union Water Company in 1896 — 120 years ago!

Each year, Denver Water collects more than 35,000 samples and conducts nearly 70,000 water quality tests to confirm that your drinking water is safe, reliable and always great-tasting.
