Common Water Issues in Fort Wayne

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The main water source for Fort Wayne is the St. Joseph River. Each day, Fort Wayne draws an average of 34 million gallons of water from the river. Water from the river is collected and stored in a watershed area that covers more then 694,000 acres in the northeast corner of Indiana. The water is then treated and filtered at the Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant in downtown Fort Wayne before being distributed to the city's 75,000 customers. The White River flows through heavily populated parts of the state, absorbing contaminants along the way — therefore Fort Wayne's water undergoes extensive treatment before reaching the faucets of local homes and businesses.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Hard water is one of the most common results of the water treatment process. Hard water is often the source of a variety of household headaches, including:

  • Hard-to-remove films and stains on tile, tubs, and sinks
  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Laundry that is stiff and rough to the touch

Lime Buildup

Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that is often found on kitchen and bathroom appliances, fixtures, and surfaces in homes with hard water. Evidence of limescale includes:

  • Underperforming appliances
  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
  • Tough-to-clean surfaces
  • White scale rings around bathtubs and sinks

Spotty, Cloudy Glassware

Clouded and spotty residue left behind on freshly washed glassware can be embarrassing. The result of mineral deposits in hard water, dishes and glasses can appear:

  • Cloudy
  • Spotty
  • Streaky or covered in drip marks
