No lead found in Tukwila water source

Due to the recent news coverage around the country of lead contamination in drinking water, the City has been receiving questions from concerned community members about the safety of the drinking water here in Tukwila.

Tukwila is a member of Cascade Water Alliance and receives its water from Seattle Public Utilities (SPU). SPU tests our water source regularly and Tukwila is not aware of any galvanized water services with lead gooseneck fittings.

Further information is available on the SPU website, including a “questions and answers” page with suggestions for private system testing.
