A message from Denver Water:
WATER QUALITY MONITORING VIOLATION
In 2016, Denver Water's system violated a drinking water monitoring requirement. Although this situation did not pose a safety risk and does not require that you take immediate action, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do and what we have done to correct this situation.
We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. From Jan. 1, 2013, to Dec. 31, 2016, we did not complete all monitoring for synthetic organic chemicals (SOCs) in accordance with compliance schedules.
What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time.
What happened? What is being done?
The table below lists the contaminant we did not properly test for.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment required that Denver Water monitor water from its treatment plants for SOCs in the 2013 to 2016 time frame. The regulation requires us to collect two sample sets from each of our three Water Treatment Plant Effluents, each in different quarters during one of the three years. Denver Water is required to monitor 31 SOC compounds triennially. With the exception of two compounds (diquat and endothall), the remaining SOC compounds were monitored per the required schedule. Because the correct sampling frequency was not followed for diquat and endothall, this caused Denver Water to have an SOC monitoring violation per the Colorado Primary Drinking Water Regulations.
Denver Water has had an active monitoring program for more than 10 years and we have not detected SOCs in our system in past compliance cycles. Denver Water’s water met all drinking water standards. And the SOCs that were collected were all non-detect.
