Oregon Water Quality and Drinking Water Problems


Oregon is known as one of the most water-rich states in the country. Just because a state is water-rich, however, does not mean that problems with supplying quality drinking water are non-existent. Much of Oregon is industrialized, agriculture runoff is common, and many of the state’s water systems are older, which means that water is often susceptible to absorbing a range of contaminants.

Depending on the region, Oregonians sometimes notice that their water is hard, contributes to soap scum and limescale buildup, causes spots and streaks to form on dishes and glassware, and can sometimes have a generally poor taste.

Different areas of Oregon can experience very different water issues. Even within the same city, water quality problems may vary. Learn more about the water quality issues where you live.

Your local Oregon Culligan Water Expert is an expert on your water, can test it to determine any problems, and provide the best way to address them.
