Common Water Issues in Cincinnati

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Cincinnati supplies its residents with water from two main sources — the Ohio River, a surface water source, and the Great Miami Aquifer, a large underground water supply. Water that is sourced from the Ohio River heads to the Richard Miller Treatment Plant, which supplies the majority of water to Cincinnati residents. Water that is pumped from wells is sourced from the Great Miami Aquifer, and then treated at the Bolton Treatment Plant.

Cincinnati is relatively water-rich, but because it is also a highly industrialized city, water is at risk of exposure to runoff from surrounding farmlands, industrial discharge, and sewage overflow. As a result, water is treated using chemicals to disinfect it, which can affect the quality of residents' water.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Because of its mineral content, Cincinnati's water is hard. While hard water is perfectly safe to drink, using hard water around the house to clean and cook with can result in:

  • Soap scum residue
  • Cloudy, filmy glassware and dishes
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry

Itchy, Dry Skin

In addition to being tough on appliances, faucets, and fixtures, hard water is also hard on your skin and hair, leaving behind an invisible film that causes your skin to dry out and your hair to become lifeless and difficult to manage.

Lime Buildup and White Scale

Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that is caused by the minerals found in hard water. Symptoms of limescale include:

  • White rings around sinks and tubs
  • Buildup on pots and pans
  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
