Pocatello residents are invited to take a look at what’s in their drinking water. 

Recently, staff with the City of Pocatello Water Department mailed out over 26,000 copies of its Annual Water Quality Report. The document summarizes the results of roughly 1,500 water quality tests conducted for over 100 different compounds over the past year. The report also details the source of Pocatello’s drinking water, what is in the water, and the types of risks the City’s testing and treatment prevent.

“The City of Pocatello Water Department continues to provide water that exceeds the standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and State of Idaho,” said Justin Armstrong, Water Department Superintendent. “Clean, safe drinking water is our most precious resource.” 

The testing of drinking water and annual report are a requirement of water utilities under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

If you do not receive a report, copies can be picked up at the Water Operations Facility, 1889 North Arthur Avenue; City Hall, 911 North 7th Avenue; or the Marshall Public Library, 113 South Garfield Avenue. A copy of the report can also be found online at
