Delivering a high standard of drinking water to our customers is a goal of the City of Woodburn. Federal law (Safe Drinking Water Act) sets the standards for public drinking water suppliers. The City of Woodburn consistently goes beyond the minimum requirements and exceeds all benchmarks.

Not only does the City provide safe water, but water that is dependable and tastes good. Detailed information about your drinking water including sources, treatment processes, testing procedures and compliance with regulatory standards can be found in our annual water quality report. The 2016 report is available online here.
