What’s in my water?
|Contaminant||About the Contaminant||Signs of the Contaminant|
|Iron||Although small amounts do not have a negative effect on your health, Iron is a contaminant that contains bacteria that feed off it. However, large amounts of iron can be hazardous to your health. Iron does not blend well with soap, leaving residue on your bathtub, appliances, and skin (causing clogged pores).||Metallic taste which carries into your food and beverages|
Leaves orange/red stains on anything water touches
Iron residue build up can cause pipes to clog, thus decreasing water pressure in your home.
|Arsenic||Arsenic has been found in several Washington County homes causing negative effects on homeowner’s health.||The only way to detect arsenic is to have your water professionally tested.|
|Nitrates||Nitrates are formed naturally in surface and groundwater. Nitrogen is essential for all living things, but when consuming higher levels through drinking water, it can be hazardous especially to infants, and pregnant women. Nitrates spread entering private wells and can come from a few different sources, such as, manure spreading, agricultural fertilizers, legume cropping systems, and septic systems.||Like arsenic, the only way to tell if you have nitrates in your water is to have it professionally tested.|
|Calcium & Magnesium||These are the most common minerals that make water “hard.” These minerals are not a health hazard, but they can cause a number of concerns in your home.||White water spots on dishes, clothes wear faster and have a rough texture, red/orange stains.|
