Water in Hartland
As a Hartland resident, your water is obtained from 5 groundwater wells. Each of these wells is finished in a shallow aquifer. Although these aquifers are extremely efficient and can yield municipal wells ranging from 100 – 2,000 gallons per minute, they are also very susceptible to contaminants due to its shallow depth. These contaminants can make there way into your home, causing issues. A water softener helps eliminate these concerns.
