Common Water Issues in Bowling Green

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Bowling Green uses the Big Barren River as its primary source of municipal drinking water. The Big Barren River flows out of the Barren River Reservoir, a flood-control lake that prevents flooding in the populated communities west of Allen and Barren Counties. Drakes Creek is another water source that is fed by Trammel Creek. These three surface water bodies make up Bowling Green's drinking water sources. Water from each source is sent to a water treatment plant to be processed before being pumped to local taps.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

The water that flows from Bowling Green's taps is typically hard, which means that it features high levels of minerals, including calcium and magnesium. While drinking and bathing with hard water is perfectly safe, the minerals in hard water can contribute to a number of household frustrations.

Spots on Glasses

After hard water dries, it can leave behind spots, streaks, and a cloudy film, which can make your glassware appear dirty — even after running it through the dishwasher.

Lime or White Scale

This is a white, chalky buildup that is both unsightly and tough to clean, and can form on a number of different surfaces around the house, including:

  • Around sinks and tubs
  • In pipes and plumbing
  • On faucets and showerheads
  • In pots, pans, and kettles

In addition to making housekeeping a chore, hard water can be rough on your skin and hair. Because hard water leaves behind an invisible film after rinsing, skin can feel dry and itchy, and hair can feel limp and lifeless after hopping out of the shower.
