MADISON, Wis. -

Madison Water Utility officials said water quality and safety tests performed in 2013 show that Madison’s water met or exceeded federal and state standards.

MWU officials released their annual Water Quality Report Monday as part of Safe Drinking Water Week, a national effort to draw attention to people who ensure cities’ water is safe to drink.

“This report provides an opportunity for our customers to learn more about the water they use every day,” MWU water quality manager Joe Grande said in a release.

Grande said MWU crews go above and beyond federal and state requirements when it comes to testing.

“We’re doing a lot of tests, not just to meet the regulations, but to better understand our water,” he said. “We take water quality seriously. We’re thinking about our customers when we are planning our testing programs, and we’re trying to provide the highest quality water possible.”

More than 130,000 homes and businesses in Madison will be getting a postcard in the mail for how to access the full report.
