Austin Has Some of the Cleanest Drinking Water in the Country - Forbes.com


Forbes.com has named Austin as having the second cleanest tap water in the U.S. in its recent study of the largest metro areas.  Des Moines, Iowa was rated #1.  The study covered 77 MSAs (Metropolitan Statistical Areas) across the country.


The ratings were based on several factors:



  • cloudiness of water (turbidity)

  • bacteria

  • haloacetic acids

  • lead


The Austin-San Marcos area showed some of the lowest levels of lead, turbidity and haloacetic acid.
