Common Water Issues in Fayetteville

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Fayetteville's main water source is Beaver Lake, a man-made reservoir in the Ozark Mountains, located right alongside the White River, which also works as a filtration plant. Water from Beaver Lake travels to a large water filtration facility in Fayetteville where it is treated again, and is then dispersed through canals and underground pipes to local homes and businesses. The journey the water takes from source to tap is a long one, allowing it time to absorb various particles and minerals along the way.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Hard water is caused primarily by dissolved calcium and other minerals that are absorbed as water travels from source to treatment facility. Hard water can result in a variety of headaches around the house. Examples include:

  • Buildup on sinks and household fixtures
  • Residue on dishes and glassware
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry
  • Malfunctioning or low-performing appliances
  • Itchy, dry skin and limp, lifeless hair

Soap Scum and Sediment

As a result of hard water, soap scum can make even simple cleaning jobs a pain. Hard water can require a little extra elbow grease due to:

  • Buildup on household appliances and faucets
  • Cloudiness and spots on dishes and glassware
  • Residue and stains around sinks and showers

Lime or White Scale Buildup

Clouded and spotty residue on glassware can be a nuisance. When dealing with hard water, dishes and glassware — even fresh out of the dishwasher — can have:

  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • White buildup that causes faucets and showerheads to clog
  • Clogged and malfunctioning heating and cooling units
  • Difficult-to-clean surfaces
  • White spots
  • Cloudy residue
  • Easy-to-spot fingerprints due to white buildup
