From The Pueblo Chieftain:

Pueblo’s drinking water surpassed all federal and state standards for water quality, according to a new report by the Pueblo Board of Water Works. A synopsis of the report is available on the Web site and will be mailed to all customers in this month’s bill. The report describes efforts by the Pueblo water board to monitor for a broad range of potential contaminants, including water quality data, sources of water supply and steps taken to treat the water. The report looks at drinking water testing in 2008, listing tests for bacteria, arsenic, barium, chromium, fluoride, nitrates and selenium. In a press release, the water board noted the level for selenium should have been reported as 5 parts per billion, not million, which is well below the standard of 50 ppb.
