I’m still concerned, will the City test my water?

Before contacting the City, we recommend that you allow water to run for at least several minutes.  If an issue goes away once water in the building plumbing is flushed out and new water is coming from the City main, then it is generally an indication of a possible problem in the home.  The City cannot assess or repair home plumbing.  If an issue persists, please submit your Taste & Odor concern to the Public Works Department through the web form or by calling 303-661-1277 and a water treatment operator will help assess the problem.
