Consistent Testing Shows Optimal Drinking Water in Snoqualmie
Citizens nationwide have been concerned about their local drinking water quality in light of contamination of the water supply in Flint, Michigan. Neither lead nor copper have been detected in Snoqualmie’s water sources. According to the Washington State Department of Health, for the last two sets of lead and copper testing results in Snoqualmie, measurements were in the top 10% of Department of Health requirements. Based on the testing results, Snoqualmie’s water system is considered optimal. The City of Snoqualmie publishes an Annual Water Report that is sent to all properties receiving water service and posted on the city website.
