Question (NYC) What's your TDS?

Hey New Yorkers, particularly the city-folk,

What's your borough and your TDS?

I notice that my tap water TDS is high recently (200ppm), and read on a different forum that last month some folks in the Bronx and Queens were getting surprisingly low counts (0-2ppm). Anyone else notice this?

For reference, our city water is usually soft at a steady 40ppm.


Last year's water report (pg12): http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/pdf/wsstate14.pdf

WOW! I live in Westchester (Ossining) and our water I suspect is from the Croton Reservoir (as also part of NYC water). TDS is stable but much higher: 265 - 270 ppm. KH=5, GH=8.
