What is the quality of Edina’s water?

The City of Edina produces a Consumer Confidence Report annually to inform its customers of the quality of the City's drinking water. The goal of the City’s Consumer Confidence Report is to provide information to customers about Edina’s drinking water without confusion or alarm. The City’s intent is to advance consumers’ understanding of drinking water, heighten awareness of the need to protect water resources and enhance the image of the professionals operating the City’s water system.


The City of Edina produces and mails its annual report in June of each year as part of the Public Works Pipeline newsletter.
