Common Water Issues in Montgomery

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

For years, Montgomery's only source of water was its well fields, which provide clean — yet hard — water. Today, the C.T. Perry Water Purification Plant, built on the Tallapoosa River, has a capacity of 60 million gallons of water per day and accounts for 60% of Montgomery's water supply.

Surface water from the Tallapoosa requires chlorine, ammonia, and other chemicals to disinfect the river water. Well water is cleaner than river water, but contains an abundance of minerals like calcium and magnesium, which make the water hard and lead to problems like soap scum and lime deposits.


Used primarily to kill dangerous bacteria and parasites in Montgomery's natural river water supply, chlorine can cause several problems around your home. Chlorine and its by-products can lead to problems like:

  • Unpleasant taste and smell
  • Discoloration
  • Coffee, teas, and soups that taste 'off'

Dry, Itchy Skin

Not only is hard water tough on household appliances, fixtures, and plumbing, it can take a toll on your skin and hair, as well. Showering with hard water can contribute to:

  • Dry, itchy, irritated skin
  • Dull, limp, lifeless hair
  • Itchy scalp and dandruff


Arsenic is an odorless and tasteless metal that enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices. While not common in drinking water, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that everyone in susceptible areas like Montgomery have their water tested, since arsenic has been linked to cardiovascular and skin problems, as well as certain cancers.
