The $2.5 million dollar treatment facility is designed to raise the pH of water from the well to a level more consistent with what is found in other parts the city’s water system. The well water’s pH of about 6.4 will rise to the 7.5-8.0 range. A pH below 6.6 may be corrosive to some plumbing and fixtures.
Customers with water treatment systems, or who use water for such things as hot tubs and fish tanks, may need to adjust their treatment levels in response to the higher pH.
