About the Water Quality in Austin, Texas
Austin Water is currently the primary provider of water to Austin residents. Customers typically receive their drinking water from three water treatment plants. These facilities are designed to pump surface water from the Lower Colorado River to residential and commercial properties. The water sources, however, travel through Lake Austin and Lake Travis. Although the City of Austin treats and filters the water according to state and federal standards, water sources may still dissolve certain naturally occurring minerals or be polluted by human or animal activities. Common contaminants include microbial/inorganic elements, herbicides, pesticides, storm water runoff, radioactive materials, and more. Recent studies show that Austin’s drinking water quality met all national and state requirements in 2019.
