Central Houston Tap Water and Iron

Would anybody know if the Central Houston area has low iron in the tapwater? I was told it was low by a LFS but haven't been able to verify this. I bought a test kit but it was inconclusive.

One reliable way to get a good read on the "average" overall water quality is to access the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) for your particular water supplier. Doing a search for CCR and the company name should turn it up for a metro area. It will then give you possibly more info than you ever wanted to know but in a report on the annual outside limits of what they find in testing. Takes a bit to learn to read it but lots of info is there.
