Common Water Issues in Lakewood

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The water for the city of Lakewood primarily comes from the South Platte River and its tributaries, the streams that feed into the Dillon Reservoir, and various creeks and canals above the Fraser River. Water from these sources is stored in one of Colorado's mountain reservoirs and from there, the water is sent to one of three treatment plants in the city through a system of streams, pipes, and canals. Once the water has been treated, it is pumped through a system of underground reservoirs to homes and businesses.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Although Lakewood's water is continually tested to meet state and federal water quality standards, hard water is common throughout the Denver area. You may notice that this causes:

  • Soap scum buildup
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry
  • Spotty dishes and glassware

Dry Skin and Limp Hair

Showering or bathing with hard water can cause its own set of problems, drying out your skin and leaving your hair lank and lifeless.

White Scale or Lime Buildup

Hard water can also lead to lime or white scale buildup — a chalky white deposit that can show up on:

  • Faucets
  • Appliances
  • Bathroom fixtures

Although lime buildup will not harm you, these hard water stains are unsightly and hard to clean. Your local Lakewood Culligan Man is an expert on your water, can test it to determine any problems, and provide the best way to address them.

Tips From the Culligan Man

Water may occasionally become discolored or rusty due to water main breaks, damage to a fire hydrant, or damage to private plumbing systems. Avoid doing laundry in this water as it may stain your clothes.

Did You Know
