Can You Drink Tap Water in Bellevue?

Yes, Bellevue's tap water is generally considered safe to drink as Bellevue has no active health based violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) that we are aware of. Other factors such as lead piping in a home, or low levels of pollutants on immunocompromised individuals, should also be considered, however. To find more recent info we might have, you can check out our boil water notice page or the city's water provider website.

According the EPA’s ECHO database, from April 30, 2019 to June 30, 2022, Bellevue's water utility, City of Bellevue, had 0 violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act. For more details on the violations, please see our violation history section below. This assessment is based on the City of Bellevue water system, other water systems in the city may have different results.

While tap water that meets the EPA health guidelines generally won’t make you sick to your stomach, it can still contain regulated and unregulated contaminants present in trace amounts that could potentially cause health issues over the long-run. These trace contaminants may also impact immunocompromised and vulnerable individuals.

The EPA is reviewing if it’s current regulations around pollutant levels in tap water are strict enough, and the health dangers posed by unregulated pollutants, like PFAS.

Water Quality Report for Bellevue Tap Water

The most recent publicly available numbers for measured contaminant levels in Bellevue tap water are in its 2020 Water Quality Report. As you can see, there are levels which the EPA considers to be acceptable, but being below the maximum allowable level doesn’t necessarily mean the water is healthy.

Lead in tap water, for example, is currently allowed at up to 15ppb by the EPA, but it has set the ideal goal for lead at zero. This highlights how meeting EPA standards doesn’t necessarily mean local tap water is healthy.

EPA regulations continue to change as it evaluates the long term impacts of chemicals and updates drinking water acceptable levels. The rules around arsenic, as well as, lead and copper are currently being re-evaluated.

There are also a number of "emerging" contaminants that are not currently. For example, PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), for which the EPA has issued a health advisory. PFAS are called "forever chemicals" since they tend not to break down in the environment or the human body and can accumulate over time.

We recommend looking at the contaminants present in Bellevue's water quality reports, or getting your home's tap water tested to see if you should be filtering your water.

Bellevue Tap Water Safe Drinking Water Act Violation History - Prior 10 Years

Below is a ten year history of violations for the water system named City of Bellevue for Bellevue in Washington. For more details please see the "What do these Violations Mean?" section below.

Are there PFAS in Bellevue Tap Water?

Currently, testing tap water for PFAS isn’t mandated on a national level. We do have a list of military bases where there have been suspected or confirmed leaks. There appears to be at least one military base - Puget Sound NS Sand Point - near Bellevue with suspected leaks.

With many potential sources of PFAS in tap water across the US, the best information we currently have about which cities have PFAS in their water is this ewg map, which you can check to see if Bellevue has been evaluated for yet.

Our stance is better safe than sorry, and that it makes sense to try to purify the tap water just in case.

What do these Violations Mean?

Safe Drinking Water Act Violations categories split into two groups, health based, and non-health based. Generally, health based violations are more serious, though non-health based violations can also be cause for concern.

Health Based Violations

  1. Maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) - maximum allowed contaminant level was exceeded.
  2. Maximum residual disinfectant levels (MRDLs) - maximum allowed disinfectant level was exceeded.
  3. Other violations (Other) - the exact required process to reduce the amounts of contaminants in drinking water was not followed.

Non-Health Based Violations

  1. Monitoring and reporting violations (MR, MON) - failure to conduct the required regular monitoring of drinking water quality, and/or to submit monitoring results on time.
  2. Public notice violations (Other) - failure to immediately alert consumers if there is a serious problem with their drinking water that may pose a risk to public health.
  3. Other violations (Other) - miscellaneous violations, such as failure to issue annual consumer confidence reports or maintain required records.

Bellevue Water - Frequently Asked Questions

Bellevue’s drinking water is soft. It is unnecessary to use special water softeners for your clothes or dishwashing machines. Water’s “hardness” and “softness” is due to its concentration of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Water is considered “softer” when it contains a lower mineral content. Bellevue’s drinking water has a hardness of approximately 23.5 mg/L, or 1.37 grains per gallon. A change in your water’s smell, taste, or color is not necessarily a health concern. However, sometimes changes can be a sign of problems. If you notice a change in your water, please call City of Bellevue Utilities at 425-452-7840.

Cedar River Watershed:

This 90,000-acre watershed in the Cascades is one of the two sources for Bellevue’s drinking water. The watershed is closed to human activity and development.


The clean and safe water you drink every day comes from the Cedar River and the south fork of the Tolt River. This water is obtained through Cascade Water Alliance (Cascade) which purchases its water from Seattle Public Utilities on behalf of its member utilities. Cascade also owns Lake Tapps, which can serve as a future source of municipal drinking water if needed.

Cascade is a municipal corporation formed in 1999 to provide a reliable source of water to municipalities in the region. It includes Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond, Tukwila, Sammamish Plateau Water, and the Skyway Water and Sewer District. Each member has a voice in determining its community’s future availability of clean, safe and reliable drinking water.

In addition, Cascade plans and implements programs, events, outreach and education

to all its partner agency residents, students, businesses and the community at large. These programs help demonstrate the best ways to use water wisely, including providing free conservation items and resources found at Saving water today means delaying the need to develop additional water sources in the future.

Cascade works with its members as well as other major water providers in the Central Puget Sound region to collaboratively plan for regional water supply needs now and into the future. This will ensure that water will be available for the future, and in case of natural or other emergencies.

Bellevue Utilities and Cascade are planning to meet our water needs, now and in the future.


To protect your health and improve the water quality, our drinking water supply from the Tolt River and Cedar River is disinfected with ultra- violet light (UV) and ozone. Disinfection using ozone is very effective at destroying Cryptosporidium and other microbial organisms. Chlorine is added to your water to prevent diseases such as cholera, giardiasis, and salmonellosis and to act as a protective barrier from

recontamination while water is in the distribution system. The average level of chlorine in your drinking water was

0.86 parts per million (ppm) in 2019. Fluoride is added by SPU during treatment to prevent tooth decay, in accordance with a Seattle public vote in 1968. The average fluoride level in your drinking water was 0.70 ppm in 2019. In addition, sodium hydroxide is added to the

water supply to raise pH levels (a measurement of acidity) to a target of 8.2. These pH levels are adjusted to make the water less corrosive

to plumbing and reduce the amount of lead and copper that can dissolve into drinking water.

After treatment, your water contains very few contaminants, and those present are below the allowable limits.

2020 Water Quality Report City of Bellevue

Your water is monitored and tested extensively throughout the year. After testing nearly 200 chemical compounds, only a few were detected (see table on next page).

MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal - The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

MCL: Maximum Contaminant Level - The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

MRDLG: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal - The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

  1. Treatment Technique - A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.

NTU: Nephelometric Turbidity Unit - Turbidity is a measure of how clear the water looks. The turbidity MCL that applied to the Cedar supply in 2019 is 5 NTU, and for the Tolt supply it was 0.3 NTU for at least 95% of the samples in a month. 100% of Tolt samples in 2019 were below 0.3 NTU.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Bellevue Utilities is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791 or at lead.

In 2017, tap water samples were collected and analyzed for lead and copper from

Properly maintain your irrigation system. When winterizing your irrigation system, make sure the compressed air is connected to a properly installed blowout connection to avoid inadvertently introducing air into our water distribution system.
2Test your backflow assembly device annually. Once installed or located, you must have it tested annually by a state- certified backflow assembly tester. This ensures that the assembly is functioning properly to protect the public drinking water. For a list of state-certified testers or any question on backflow assembly testing, please contact
City of Bellevue Backflow Prevention at 425-452-4201.


It’s just what it sounds like: the water is flowing in the opposite direction from its normal flow. With the direction of flow reversed due to a change in pressures, backflow can allow contaminants to enter your drinking water system through cross connections—connection points between the drinking water system and another system, like irrigation or fire sprinkler.

Water pressure is reduced because of a break in the water main.

Reverse flow is created by a change in water pressure.

Without a backflow prevention assembly, dangerous contaminants can be drawn into the drinking water supply.


1Locate or install a backflow assembly device. If you have an underground irrigation system, check to see if you have a backflow assembly. The backflow assembly is a brass valve usually found between your water meter and the point where your water service line enters your home, usually in a small green box similar to a meter box. If your irrigation system does not include a backflow assembly or if you are installing a new underground irrigation system, City of Bellevue plumbing code requires you to install a Double Check Valve Assembly (DCVA)3at a minimum.

2020 Water Quality Report City of Bellevue

Information from US EPA

Sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals, in some cases, radioactive material; and substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of these contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Water Use Efficiency

Using water efficiently is important to provide a safe, reliable supply of water for our community’s needs today and in the future. On behalf of Bellevue and other members, Cascade will dedicate resources to achieve a cumulative, annual drinking water savings of 0.4 million gallons per day by December 31, 2022.

In 2019, Bellevue Utilities supplied 5.73 billion gallons of water to its customers. Bellevue’s water system is fully metered. The city does its part to encourage the efficient use of water by minimizing water loss caused by leaks throughout its distribution system. Distribution system leakage or water loss was 7.1 percent of total consumption in 2019, below the Washington State standard of 10 percent.

Cascade provides water efficiency programs and services on behalf of its members, which are Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond, Tukwila, Sammamish Plateau Water District, and Skyway Water and Sewer District. In 2019 Cascade administered several conservation program measures or activities including the following:

  • Rebates for EnergyStar and WaterSense labeled showerheads and clothes washers
  • Showerhead and aerator installation at multifamily properties
  • Free conservation items delivered upon request to multifamily properties and Cascade members for distribution to customers
  • Free shower timers, rain gauges, toilet leak detection dye, and other conservation items available through Cascade’s website,
  • Participation in 15 community events to promote conservation, the value of water, and the “We Need Water Because…” campaign

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants may be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. Environmental Protection Agency/ Centers for Disease Control guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

  • Promotion of the US EPA’s annual Fix A Leak Week
  • Irrigation system assessments for high-use customers such as school districts, parks departments, and homeowner associations
  • Residential gardening classes
  • Partnership with Tilth Alliance to deliver the Soil and Water Stewardship program, which trains residents on sustainable landscaping, rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation, and other topics
  • Partnership with the Lake Washington Institute of Technology to offer the Sustainable Landscape Technologies accredited program to train students and industry professionals on the fundamentals of efficient irrigation system management and sustainable landscaping
  • Partnership with the Sno-King Watershed Council to train residents to become stream monitors
  • Classroom presentations on a variety of water- related topics
  • Support of teachers in developing water-based curricula and training and resources for teachers to incorporate the study of water into their classrooms

These programs and services promoted water efficiency and stewardship of our water resources resulting in approximately 20,000 customer interactions representing all Cascade members and achieved a savings of an estimated 142,469 gallons of water per day in 2019 or 35.6% of Cascade’s 2019-22 WUE goal.

Why does my water taste like rubber?

Check to see if your garden hoses are connected and charged with the hose bib in the open position. This would allow water to flow backwards into your plumbing system, imparting a rubbery taste. Shut off the hose bib and disconnect the garden hose when not using to prevent backflow from the hose.

Why are there pink or black stains in sinks and around drains?

Those pink or black stains are a mixed culture of airborne yeast, mold, and/or bacteria which grow well in moist conditions. They are not from your drinking water. These occurrences can increase especially in the summer when humidity and warmer temperatures increase microbial growth rates. Frequent cleaning can remove these.

Is Bellevue’s drinking water hard or soft?

Bellevue’s drinking water is soft. It is unnecessary to use special water softeners for your clothes or dishwashing machines.

Water’s “hardness” and “softness” is due to its concentration of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Water is considered “softer” when it contains a lower mineral content. Bellevue’s drinking water has a hardness of approximately 23.5 mg/L, or 1.37 grains per gallon.

Who should I contact if my water has a unusual smell, taste, or appearance?

A change in your water’s smell, taste, or color is not necessarily a health concern. However, sometimes changes can be a sign of problems. If you notice a change in your water, please call City of Bellevue Utilities at 425-452-7840.

Sources and Resources

Bellevue Tap Water

Many people around the country are concerned about the quality of their tap water in their homes. One of the biggest complaints from Bellevue residents is that their tap water has an aftertaste to it. It doesn’t taste right, and people are constantly looking for ways to improve the taste and quality of their local water. One way to do this is to install a water filtering system of some kind in your home. Here are a few of the best options to consider:

Radium Filters: A Radium Filter will improve the taste and quality of your Bellevue tap water, but there are even more benefits to improving the taste and quality of the water in your home. Radium is a ubiquitous element found throughout our environment. The Radium in drinking water acts as a natural antioxidant and protects our bodies from harmful pollutants. If you want to take your family’s health to the next level, you should seriously consider adding a Radium Filter to your home’s drinking water supply. These filters can be installed on your kitchen faucet or in a separate location in your home.

Radium Treatments: The Radium treatment facility in Bellevue offers a Radium Ion exchange process that will significantly benefit the community. They also provide a Radium Ion Fluxion Process that ionizes and treats the tap water. This process does not remove all traces of Radium that may be present in the drinking water. However, over time, these traces accumulate in the body and begin to interfere with the function of healthy cells in our body. Over some time, this affects the skin, muscle, immune system, and brain. A Radium Ion exchanger is used to permanently rid the body of the Radium accumulated in the body, thus reducing the harmful effects of Radium in our daily lives.

Bellevue’s Drinking Water

The Bellevue municipal water treatment facility treats approximately 1.5 million residents each year. Through a process called chlorination, they take out the more significant, harmful particles from the water. For example, things like pharmaceuticals and the like are not filtered out because these substances are much too large to pass through the filters. But what about all of the smaller, harmful particles? Unfortunately, most of them can make their way through, so there is no better option than using granular activated carbon filters to get rid of them.

The problem with most municipal water treatment systems is that they don’t block everything. Sure, they’ll stop most chemicals from being made into the water supply, but then chemicals can be created naturally, and then again, chemicals are often found in groundwater as well. Plus, bacteria and other organic substances can get through the filters. So, Bellevue’s drinking water comes right up the creek without any of it being cleaned. If you want to have clean, great-tasting water, then you have to consider filtering it yourself.

Fortunately, there are several excellent products available. One such product, called Aquasana, blocks chlorine and fluoride, two of the most common contaminants found in public water supplies across the country. Another, called Aquasana Plus, increases trace minerals found in regular spring water by balancing mineral content. And, the most effective of all of these products is called Eureka!, which uses a dual filtration method to clean your water and make sure that you have only the healthiest water possible.

Bellevue Water Quality Report

The Bellevue water quality report is one of the best that the city of Bellevue has to offer. There are many aspects that the quality report will cover, including a look at the bacteria and other microorganisms that can be found in the water. Microorganisms can be harmful to humans, but when they are found in the water we drink, they can cause a problem. When the water is safe for consumption, it can cut down on skin rashes and other types of sickness.

The water quality report also looks into the type of filtration used by the water company that provides the water to homes and businesses. The filtration methods are used, among other things, to keep from contaminating the water. Some ways are effective, and some are not. For this reason, the water quality report discusses how each method affects the water, both for the users of the water and the environment. It explains which filtration methods are best and why.

Finally, the report explains how the water is tested for safety purposes. While most companies don’t test their water for pollution or other dangerous contaminants, they do have standards that need to be met to meet the requirements of the Clean Water Act. The report also discusses what happens if the company doesn’t meet those standards. That information should be readily available for everyone, as it describes what happens when clean water is found in areas other than the one where it was produced.

Bellevue’s Water

In 2021, the City of Bellevue declared that its tap water contained various “surprising levels” of several contaminants, including elevated levels of lead, VOCs, cysts, and other toxins that can cause health problems. This is a severe issue considering that Bellevue is regarded as one of the poorest cities in all of Washington State. The water in our taps contains several different compounds, many of which have been linked to health problems such as cancer and neurological disorders. Because of this, the City of Bellevue and other municipalities, including Tualatin, Kentland, and Mukilteo, began work to test the water coming from our homes and start implementing a new, stricter disinfection byproduct called chloramine. The goal is to reduce the number of disinfection byproducts produced by chlorination.

Unfortunately, the results of this long-term exposure to chloramine-laden water came back to haunt Bellevue and the other municipalities. Based on the new research, researchers found that a combination of microscopic cysts and VOCs could cause various health problems ranging from stomach ulcers to fertility problems in both male and female subjects. While it may be hard to imagine the long-term exposure to these substances being particularly hazardous to human health, the fact is that they are present in amounts too large to be detected through any standard epidemiological surveillance. Therefore, regardless of whether you are a resident of Bellevue or another locale, you must protect yourself by using a home filtration system, one that removes these contaminants. Additionally, to truly protect yourself against these types of pollutants, you need a system that protects your health and the health of your family.

Based on the new research, your best protection against these microscopic toxins comes from a multi-stage home filtration system containing carbon block, granular carbon, ion exchange, sub-micron filtration, and sub-micron filtration. This specific home filtration system will remove the threat of VOCs and lead. It will also remove any threat of chemical contaminants like herbicides and pesticides from the drinking water. In addition, if a public treatment facility services you, it is critical that you also make sure that your municipality has enacted the provisions required under the Safe Drinking Water Act. As implemented by all 50 states, these provisions require facilities to treat their drinking water to ensure that it is safe for consumption.
