Everett conducts a comprehensive water quality testing program to ensure our water is safe to drink. Each year, we test for more than 100 possible contaminants and report key findings in our Annual Drinking Water Quality Report to citizens. We are happy to provide this information because we want you to know where your drinking water comes from, how it is treated and that it meets, or exceeds, all government standards.
