Drinking Water Quality

Each year, the City of Bellingham tests its drinking water for over 150 substances. The City’s water consistently meets all standards for purity. Bellingham Public Works staff operate a state-accredited laboratory where drinking water quality monitoring (PDF) is performed daily. See Bellingham’s latest consumer confi​dence report​ to learn how the City’s water measures up. If you have questions about your drinking water you may find the answer in Water Quality Frequently Asked Questions (PDF).
