HOW ARLINGTON WATER MEETS SAFETY STANDARDS
Arlington Water Utilities employees work hard each and every day to provide tap water that meets all requirements for safety set by federal and state regulations . Like most of the tap water in Texas , Arlington ’ s water supply comes what is known as surface water .
Richland Chambers Reservoir
Cedar Creek Reservoir
The City of Arlington purchases its water for treatment from the Tarrant Regional Water District , or TRWD . The water comes from four reservoirs : Cedar Creek , Richland Chambers , Lake Arlington and Lake Benbrook . ( see map )
That surface water goes through several processes at Arlington ’ s two water treatment plants to make it drinkable . Ozone is used as the primary water disinfectant . Then , aluminum sulfate and a cationic polymer are added to help dirt and other particles clump together and settle out during treatment .
The water is then filtered through granular activated carbon beds to remove smaller particles and substances that are dissolved in the water . The water is treated with chloramine ( chlorine and ammonia ) as it enters storage . Chloramine is a disinfectant that keeps the water safe on its way to your faucet .
Testing Before Your Tap
Arlington Water Utilities tests drinking water throughout the water treatment process and at locations all over the city .
In 2022 , the laboratory analyzed 6,567 samples for 372 different substances . Data in this report was collected between Jan . 1 , 2022 and Dec . 31 , 2022 , unless another time frame is noted .
