Sudbury Water Problems

Common water issues in Sudbury, and how to fix them

The city of Sudbury goes to great lengths to ensure its drinking water is safe for area residents. The water is sourced from both the Wanapitei River and Ramsey Lake, and is treated at two separate surface water treatment facilities that are subject to regular inspection — both announced and unannounced. However, even after being thoroughly treated, the water that pours from Sudbury taps can still retain a few traits that could potentially lead to issues around the house.

Stains or Discoloured Water

Discoloured water can be the result of pressure changes that loosen the sediment around water mains and pipes, while water with high mineral content, such as iron, can leave rust-red stains on laundry.

Sulphur or Rotten Eggs

Water that smells like sulphur — or rotten eggs — is incredibly unappealing to drink. The odour could be caused by the buildup of debris in the drainage system or bacterial growth leaching its way into your water.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Surface water sources often contain a high concentration of dissolved minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and iron. Although these minerals don’t pose any extreme health risks, they are the culprit behind hard water, which can lead to several issues around the house, including:

  • White scale and buildup on fixtures
  • Unusually high utility bills
  • Soap scum in showers and bathtubs

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

If you’re a victim of stinky water, fill a cup from the tap and walk into another room. If the water in the cup smells like rotten eggs, you have a water problem. If not, the problem could just be a dirty drain.
