Cincinnati's water quality

For you kids interested in the tap water quality.

http://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/water/pages/-3263-/

The pdf has everything you need to know.. Too bad they don't list calcium, phospate & potassium. I would be interesting to know.

If any of you know, please let us know.

I live in the white oak / monfort heights area right by 74 and North Bend Rd, so I think I get my water from the aquifer, not the river. I remember when I was living at my parents house, I was able to find the Water Work's data sheet for their home which was fed by the river treatment plant.

If you look at the 2005 Annual Report, it does list Ca, although I swear phosphates were listed at one time...

While it's good to have these numbers, who knows what happens to the water params during it's long travel to your faucet. If you'd like to get some accurate water samples, bring a few ounces to a SWOAPE meeting and Matt can do the tests.

Oh, I have all the tests.. It's good to have the givens so I can calibrate readings. I just did a test for the water in Detroit here.. They have 2ppm of phosphate in their tap water.. That can't be a good thing.
