What is the average hardness of our water?
The District’s primary water source comes from shallow alluvial wells that have been exposed to underground mineral deposits. The hardness of the water comes from naturally occurring minerals, primarily dissolved calcium and magnesium. The dissolved minerals result in your drinking water averaging 21 grains/gallon (359mg/L) hardness.
