Residential & Commercial Water Services for Arvada

Whether you’re in need of a simple water softener or a more advanced solution like water analysis, reverse osmosis, or something else, we’ve got you covered. Water Works offers comprehensive water services for commercial, industrial, and residential properties in Arvada.

Water Testing

Water analysis is the first step to addressing any water quality issues you’re experiencing. A water analysis can provide you with useful information about what contaminants may be present in your water as well as its hardness and general quality. Whether you need testing for well water, lead, medical/pharmaceutical water, or commercial or industrial water, the Water Works team is by your side, ready to assist!

Water Softeners

A good reason to have your water tested is to determine its hardness. Extremely hard water can cause issues like spots on dishes, plumbing issues, reduced energy efficiency, dry skin, and difficulty cleaning. Water that is too soft, on the other hand, can be corrosive and damaging to household plumbing. Our water softener systems can help you attain the ideal balance so that you have high quality water in your home.

Water Purification

Water contaminants come in many forms including chemical, biological, and particulate. Contaminants not only affect how your water tastes and smells, but also how healthy it is to drink and use for bathing. Our water purification systems can provide you with access to clean, safe water, so that you don’t have to worry about contaminants compromising your health and safety.

Water Filtration

Water filtration is a method used to lower the level of contaminants in a water supply so that it can be safely used for drinking, washing, and bathing. We offer a variety of water filtration systems for Arvada customers including house water filters, reverse osmosi, under-sink, drop-in, and in-line filters.

Additional Services

At Water Works, all of our solutions are fully customizable. We know that water quality varies from one tap to the next, so we adapt and change our approach whenever necessary. We offer a variety of services for the Arvada area including water hardness removal, chloramine removal, pH balancing, radionuclide treatment, and more.

Is Arvada’s Drinking Water Safe?

Arvada is known for being a clean city. But is the water supply as clean and safe as it looks? Here’s what you need to know about the quality of the drinking water in Arvada. 


The majority of Arvada’s water comes from Clear Creek, South Boulder Creek, and the Fraser River. The water is diverted into and stored in the Arvada/Blunn Reservoir. Arvada’s water supply is managed by Denver Water. Currently, there are two water treatment plants that process the water supplies to drinking water standards. This includes the Arvada and Ralston Water Treatment Plants.The Ralston location is the main treatment plant, which receives its water from the Denver Water Board’s Moffat Tunnel.


You can find detailed information on drinking water sources and treatment on the City of Arvada website


Although the City of Arvada oversees water quality, it’s still important to have your home or business water supply tested. This is because contaminants can enter your water supply after it leaves the Ralston or Arvada plant. Having your water analyzed is the only sure way to determine its quality.

Arvada Water Contaminants

Some of the most commonly detected water contaminants in Arvada include Haloacetic acids, Trichloroacetic acid, Radium, Dichloroacetic acid, Chloroform, Total trihalomethanes, and Lead.

Water Quality in Arvada Neighborhoods

Water Works is proud to serve the entire city of Arvada and the surrounding area. Below, you will find some information about the water quality in popular neighborhoods.

Olde Town Arvada

Olde Town Arvada is home to a number of historic buildings. Some of these buildings may contain old plumbing features which can pose a threat to water quality.

Hackberry Hill

Hackberry Hill is host to a number of properties built in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Homes built prior to 1970 are more susceptible to having lead pipes and water contaminants.

Club Crest

Like much of Arvada, the majority of homes in Club Crest were built between the years of 1960 and 1975. We recommend having your water supply tested if you live in this area to avoid issues with water hardness and contamination.

Importance of Water Purification & Filtration

Water purification and filtration systems are designed to improve your water quality by removing harmful contaminants, particles, and sediment. Our water purification services give Arvada  residents access to a range of benefits including: 

  • High quality drinking water:  Installing a water purification or filtration system is a great way to improve your water quality. These systems help remove contaminants, giving you access to clean, safe drinking water. 
  • Healthier for high risk individuals: Certain individuals like children, seniors, and people with immune system issues may be more affected by water contaminants than others. Purified water is safer for these members of your household to bathe with and consume.  
  • No single-use plastic: Having access to clean water on demand eliminates the need for plastic water bottles and frequent trips to the store to refill water jugs.  
  • Superior taste: Purified water has a taste and smell that’s superior to untreated water. 

Better for other daily activities: Treated water is better for bathing, washing dishes, doing laundry, and cooking.

Water Softener System Benefits

Water hardness can affect the way your water tastes and smells and also impact the efficiency and longevity of your home appliances. Installing a water softener is an excellent way to treat hard water so that you can enjoy benefits like:

  • Cleaner glasses, dishes, and silver: Soft water is better for washing dishes, glasses, and silverware and is less likely to result in spots. 
  • Appliances last longer: Appliances tend to work better and last longer when they run off of soft water.  
  • Keeps your plumbing working smoothly: Hard water can result in problems like clogged pipes and drains. Installing a water softener decreases the likelihood that you’ll run into these types of plumbing issues. 
  • Helps with dry skin and hard: If you’ve had problems with dry skin and hair, the underlying cause could be your water quality. Hard water contains minerals that deplete the body of its natural moisture.
  • Saves on energy costs: Installing a water softener can help reduce your utility bill by improving the efficiency of your hot water heater. 

Balancing the Pros and Cons of Well Water for Arvada Homes

For Arvada homeowners, utilizing well water presents an opportunity to tap into local groundwater, but it requires diligent maintenance due to its vulnerability to contamination. In contrast to treated municipal water, well water might harbor diverse impurities like bacteria, sediment, pesticides, and heavy metals. Consistently tending to your well water system is crucial to guarantee a dependable and pure water source for your Arvada home. This involves routine water quality assessments, timely filter changes, and addressing concerns related to radioactivity and radionuclides that can sometimes impact well water safety in the region.

Understanding Well Water Contaminants in Arvada Homes

For Arvada homeowners who depend on well water, it’s important to be aware of potential contaminants that might be present in your water supply. These contaminants can stem from different origins like agricultural runoff, industrial processes, and naturally occurring elements within the soil. Some typical culprits found in well water include bacteria like coliform and E. coli, nitrates, arsenic, lead, iron, manganese, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It’s crucial to conduct routine water testing to detect the presence of these substances and take necessary steps to counteract them using appropriate filtration and purification techniques.

Enhancing The Well Water Quality For Your Arvada Home

For Arvada homeowners who rely on well water, it’s essential to know that your water supply might contain different contaminants. These contaminants can come from sources like agricultural runoff, industrial processes, and naturally existing elements in the soil. Some examples of common contaminants found in well water include bacteria such as coliform and E. coli, nitrates, arsenic, lead, iron, manganese, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Regular water testing is crucial to detect these contaminants and manage them effectively through proper filtration and purification methods.
