BPU Releases 2024 Water Quality Report

(KANSAS CITY, Kan.)The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) has released its annual Water Quality Report. The 2024 Water Quality Report, which is available in its entirety on BPU’s website, is also mailed to all customers via hard copy as part of the 2024 Summer BPU Connection newsletter.

BPU is pleased to report that its water once again meets or surpasses all standards for safe and high-quality water. The municipal utility delivers safe and reliable drinking water through more than 1,000 miles of lines, serving 53,000 residential and commercial customers in a service area of more than 152 square miles. The service area includes Kansas City, Kansas, Edwardsville, southern Leavenworth County, parts of Bonner Springs and a small section of northern Johnson County.

BPU’s state-of-the art water system pumps 30 million gallons of water a day (MGD) which includes: one water treatment facility; three major pump stations; two of the nation’s largest horizontal collector wells; and multiple reservoirs and water tanks. In 2023, BPU produced over 10 billion gallons of safe drinking water for the community.

The Water Quality Report was generated based on BPU’s certified laboratory, which ran more than 41,800 tests on over 8,700 water samples to ensure that its water meets quality standards. The annual Water Quality Report features detailed information and explanations about the make-up of BPU’s water over the previous year. Descriptions of BPU’s treatments methods, production volume, and water sources are also provided. BPU tap water is also local, environmentally friendly, and comes with significant value –a penny per gallon delivered to the customer’s tap for the average residential customer. More information about BPU and its water system can be found at www.bpu.com.
