Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) Acting Director Jason W. Mitchell today announced that DPW has published its 2020 Water Quality Report. The report shows that the water we provide to residential and commercial customers continues to meet or exceed regulatory standards.

 “DPW’s annual water quality report shows that Baltimore continues to provide safe, high-quality water and highlights the Department’s major infrastructure projects to better protect the Baltimore region’s drinking water supply,” said Acting DPW Director Mitchell.

This annual report informs residents where the City’s drinking water comes from, how the water is treated, what chemicals it contains, and how it meets federal standards for tap water.  

The report, also known as the Consumer Confidence Report, is available online for Baltimore City and County residents to review.

DPW continues to use electronic delivery to distribute its Water Quality Report. A message and a link now appears on water bills directing customers to DPW’s most recent water quality report: publicworks.baltimorecity.gov/waterreport.

Printed copies are available upon request by calling 311 (for Baltimore City residents) or (410) 396-5352 (for Baltimore County residents).
