Common Water Issues in Westland

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Westland's water is supplied by the city of Detroit, which draws its water from a series of rivers that are a part of the Great Lakes System. Water from the Detroit River, which is the main water source for this system, is known to be highly susceptible to contaminants, toxins, and wastewater runoff due to urban and industrial development in the watershed. Once sourced, water travels through a series of complex pipes and mains to the Springwell Treatment Plant where it is filtered, treated, and then stored in a storage facility until it is distributed to Westland residents.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Westland's water is typically hard, meaning it contains high concentrations of dissolved calcium and other minerals that are often absorbed as water travels from its source and is treated. Hard water, while safe to drink, can cause a number of frustrating household issues, including:

  • Dry, flaky skin and scalp
  • Residue on dishes and glassware
  • Stiff, scratchy, faded laundry
  • Unpleasant, bitter taste

Stains or Colored Water

Westland residents often notice a brownish or yellowish tint to their tap water. This tint can be caused by the absorption of minerals, the presence of organic matter, or even exposure to old, rusty pipes. Whatever the cause, colored water can often lead to tinted laundry, as well as stains around sinks and bathtubs.

Lime Buildup

Limescale is a hard, chalky buildup that is caused by mineral deposits present in hard water. Unsightly and a pain to clean, limescale often forms on or around:

  • Kitchen and bathroom appliances
  • Faucets and showerheads
  • Tubs and sinks
  • Heating and cooling units
