alkalinity 300-450
sodium runs about 200 ppm

the temperature of the water out of the ground is 115F and generally runs about 92F leaving the water plant during the summer, 85F during the cooler months. the aquafer is the Simsboro Sands and is 3,000 ft under ground


Thanks for the info.

This is what water looks like in the BCS area. This is from the College Station report or Bryan I forgot. But it doesn't matter. It's all the same even in Wickson.
