California Water Quality Facts and Drinking Water Problems

Culligan

Due to frequent drought, the state of California had been hard-pressed in recent years to provide the state’s nearly 40 million residents with clean, clear water. California water absorbs a number of different minerals and chemicals as it travels long distances from dwindling tributaries and reservoirs to be treated and then dispersed to some of our country’s most populated cities.

Water issues vary throughout the state, but common problems resulting from California’s water, which is often hard, include lime or white scale buildup, problems with dry or itchy skin, malfunctioning or underperforming appliances, spotted and cloudy dishes, and bitter or unsavory taste. California’s water is also known to contain high levels of arsenic, chlorine, and other chemicals. Whatever your water problems may be, your Culligan Water Expert can get to the bottom of your issues.

Different areas in California can experience a variety of different water issues. Even in the same city, the problems can vary widely. Learn more about the water in your city today.
