Common Water Issues in Lake Zurich

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Lake Zurich's water supply comes from a combination of surface and groundwater, in addition to six wells that serve, store, and disinfect water. These wells are drilled into an aquifer located just outside city limits. Despite the abundance of natural water in the area, concerns about its quality exist due to raw sewage that can sometimes overflow into Lake Zurich during heavy rains. In addition to water quality issues due to runoff, water travels over land or underground, which makes it susceptible to absorbing minerals that naturally exist in rocks and soil.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are absorbed during the filtration and treatment process, as well as along water's journey from source to tap. These absorbed minerals and metals cause the water to become hard and its quality depleted. Some household headaches associated with using hard water include:

  • Clogged appliances that lead to water-flow issues
  • Hard-to-clean residue and buildup on appliances, hardware, and surfaces
  • Soap scum on showers, bathtubs, and sinks
  • Prematurely aged clothing and linens that are rough to the touch

Spotty, Cloudy Glassware

Spotty and cloudy residue on glassware can be tough to get rid of with high mineral concentrations in your water. Doing the dishes with hard water can result in:

  • White spots on glasses and silverware
  • Easy-to-spot fingerprints on freshly cleaned glasses
  • Cloudy, streaky residue

Itchy, Dry Skin

One of hard water's most annoying qualities is the drying and irritating effect it has on skin. Some results of showering with hard water include:

  • Flaky, dry, irritated skin
  • Itchy scalp and dandruff
  • Premature aging due to dry skin
