Water Quality

The City of King is dedicated to providing high quality drinking water to our customers. We also strive to protect the environment. Our water laboratory performs many analyses per year to ensure water quality parameters are met. Samples are also taken to contract laboratories for analyses to ensure that all Federal and State water quality measures are met.

The City of King is proud of our efforts to preserve water quality and is happy to offer more information about water quality. Our annual Water Quality Report presents updates on King’s drinking water and treatment processes.

Water Conservation

All conservation and efficiency measures are aimed at reducing water usage, decreasing the demand on our water treatment plant and extending the life of our water supplies. In the event of a drought, water shortage or other emergency, conservation staff will implement and enforce the measures listed in the City’s Water Conservation Ordinance.

Thanks to all the customers of the City of King Water System, through their voluntary water conservation efforts, during the drought condition, the system was able to maintain sufficient water supplies for all, and was able to maintain water quality levels as well.
