Update on Drinking Water
Our drinking water is safe! You may have heard or read about Donala Water and Sanitation and elevated levels of radium. Rest assured, our water is in compliance and will remain in compliance with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s (CDPHE) water quality standards. The Triview Metro District has implemented a number of measures to ensure our current and future compliance with all of the CDPHE’s standards.
Those specific measures include:
- Installing enhanced water treatment processes at Triview’s two water treatment facilities to ensure we are able to remove radium from our finished water supply, thereby ensuring compliance with water quality standards associated with combined Radium 226/228 (Maximum Contaminant Level of 5 Pico Curies per liter).
- Blending groundwater supplies from Triview’s nine Denver and Arapahoe wells to ensure water quality standards are consistently met.
- And in the future, being the project sponsor for the Northern Delivery Pipeline, which will bring high quality renewable water to Triview’s customers.
The district’s 2021 quarterly compliance schedule for combined Radium 226/228 at the Point of Entry for Drinking Water has an average of 4.16 pCi/L., which is well below the MCL of 5 Pico Curies per liter established by CDPHE. This average consists of 3 out of 4 quarters sampled in 2021.
