Rhode Island Water Quality Facts and Drinking Water Problems


Drinking water for the state of Rhode Island comes from a network of rivers and reservoirs throughout the state. The largest inland body of water in the state is the Scituate Reservoir, which has a surface area of 5.3 square miles. Between it and its six tributary reservoirs, the total surface area makes up 7.2 square miles and provides drinking water to more than 60% of the state.

Residents often report the water that comes out of their taps is hard with the presence of high levels of minerals and metallic elements, which dries skin and causes hair to become limp and unmanageable.

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