What’s in my water? Is it safe to drink?

Redmond’s drinking water meets or exceeds all federal, state and local health standards. Our water is tested daily throughout the City to assure safety.

But, there is much more to good drinking water than simple H2O. As the universal solvent, water dissolves and takes on traces of whatever it comes in contact with, for example, minerals. There is no such thing as pure water in nature; and if there were, it wouldn’t taste very good!
