The City’s goal is to continuously provide a dependable supply of high quality drinking water to its customers. On the page below, you can find information about Pleasanton's drinking water, where it comes from, and how you can stay informed about your driving water.
The technical and analytical water quality information presented in this report is required by State health regulations. These regulations require water suppliers to inform customers about where their water comes from, what is in their water, and any violation of safe drinking water standards that may have occurred during this past reporting period. This report provides results of all tests required to be performed on Pleasanton’s water supplies during 2022. We are happy to report that all 2022 water quality tests confirmed that water delivered to your tap met all applicable federal and state drinking water standards without any violations.
This report also includes information regarding steps taken by the City and Zone 7 Water Agency to improve drinking water delivered to customers in 2022, and opportunities for the public to participate in decisions that affect their drinking water quality.

Zone 7 Water Agency, the Valley’s water wholesaler, provides wholesale treated water to four major Valley water retailers, delivers untreated water to a number of agricultural customers, and monitors flood control measures and coordinates groundwater management resources in the Tri-Valley area. Approximately 80% of Pleasanton’s water is purchased from Zone 7 and is comprised of treated surface water blended with some local groundwater. The remaining 20% comes from local groundwater pumped from wells owned and operated by the City of Pleasanton. All water sources are disinfected and fluoridated before delivery to our customers.
PFOA and PFOS are fluorinated organic chemicals that are part of a larger group of chemicals referred to as per- and poly-fluoalkyl substances (PFAS). PFOA and PFOS have been extensively produced in the United States since the 1940s. These manmade substances have been synthesized for water and lipid resistance and used in products such as carpets, clothing, fabrics for furniture, paper packaging for food, non-stick cookware, and fire-retarding foam. Between 2000 and 2002, PFOS was voluntarily phased out of production in the U.S. by its primary manufacturer.
