Pennsylvania Water Quality Facts
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
Pennsylvania's drinking water is supplied both from surface and groundwater sources. Due to the heavy concentration of industrialized zones, residential areas, and farmland, contaminants in the soil are common. These contaminants can include toxins, metals, minerals, radioactive materials, bacteria, and waste runoff. As water travels, it can absorb these contaminants. As a result, Pennsylvania's water is heavily treated.
Common problems with Pennsylvania's water include limescale buildup and itchy skin, as well as a generally unpleasant taste and a slight discoloration.
Different areas of Pennsylvania can experience different water issues. Even within the same city, water quality problems may vary. Learn more about the water quality issues where you live.
