Common Water Issues in Newport

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Newport gets the majority of its water from surface water from the Stanton Water Treatment Plant, which draws from the White Clay and Red Clay creeks.

Unpleasant Taste and Odor

While fluoride, chlorides, and sodium are not dangerous in the small amounts that are present in Newport's drinking water, they can create a distinct taste and odor that many people find unappealing. While not hazardous to your health, water with higher levels of fluoride, chlorides, or sodium can take on a characteristic bitter taste and odor.

Metallic Elements

The presence of metallic elements is another common issue in Newport-area water. Very small amounts of metals can be present in the water supply. While most are not dangerous and don't pose a health risk, it is still a good idea to have your water tested annually — especially if you get your water from a private well not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Stains or Discolored Water

When metals are present in water, it can lead to a slight discoloration that can stain and damage your laundry and appliances over time.

Your local Newport 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

Use sprinklers that deliver big drops of water near the ground. Smaller drops and mist often evaporate before hitting the ground.
