Houston Tapwater??

Hello Folks,

Curious if anybody has any insight(s) on Houston, TX and the likely tapwater parametersone can expect to encounter. My water here in northern Virginia is slightly alkaline and slightly hard. My wife and I will be relocating to the Houston area (most likely Sugarland, Pearland area) and I am trying to to get an idea on how this will affect my fish and plants.

I went searching for a great post on this forum that shows the various regions of Texas and how hard/soft the water is in each. Couldn't find it... but if you really wanted to see it, do some searching in the water parameter section, or hopefully someone else sees this post that knows where it is

Below are the water quality reports for Sugarland and Pearland. The Pearland one seems to be more comprehensive.
