Common Water Issues in Frederick

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Frederick utilizes four water sources, including Linganore Creek, Monocacy River, Fishing Creek, and the Potomac River to supply water to its service area. As the water travels over the land's surface or through the ground, it can absorb both natural and manmade substances, which can contaminate the water. Although the treatment process is in place to supply safe drinking water, certain problems may still exist by the time water reaches your faucet.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

High content of dissolved calcium, magnesium, and other minerals results in poor-quality, hard water. Some common signs of hard water include:

  • Lime buildup
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Spotty glassware
  • Soap scum

Unpleasant Odor or Color

Chlorine is commonly used as an additive to treat and disinfect Frederick's water during the treatment process. Unfortunately, it can often leave behind a bad smell in your drinking water.

pH Imbalance

Imbalanced pH levels in water is a common problem throughout the state, including in Frederick. A telltale sign of low pH levels is when blue-green stains appear on surfaces your tap water frequently comes into contact with, like sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets. Low pH levels can be acidic and corrosive, often leaching metal contaminants from plumbing into your drinking water.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Collect rainwater in a bucket or barrel and use it to give your garden and houseplants a drink.

Did You Know

Almost half of Frederick's water is supplied by Linganore Creek.
