Drinking water quality
The Seattle campus receives its drinking water from the City of Seattle. Seattle’s drinking water consistently meets (and often exceeds) regulatory standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Washington State Board of Health. Water quality testing reports and analyses of drinking water sources can be found on the Seattle Public Utilities website.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least trace amounts of some contaminants. The presence of trace contaminants does not mean that the water is unsafe. More information about contaminants and their potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800.426.4791.
Questions or concerns regarding the safety of drinking water on the University's Seattle campus should be directed to the EH&S Public Health Program at 206.616.1623 or 206.543.7209.
