Water Quality Remains High


The Columbia Heights Utility Department understands your concerns about COVID-19, and the impact it's having on your life. We, too, are concerned fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children of aging parents. As a community, we share the same challenges and concerns.

We want to reassure you that our employees continue to work to provide the same safe drinking water as always. The water we purchase from the City of Minneapolis meets all state drinking water guidelines, and the disinfection process used kills viruses, including the coronavirus.

The United States has some of the highest standards for tap water in the world and Minneapolis consistently meets those standards.
