Conversion table

In my local authority water report some of the values are given in measurements that resemble ug, is there a conversion chart so that I can get some idea of comparisons.

Also the general hardness is given in degrees Clarke, is there a conversion chart for this, or is this the general degrees in which hardness is usually notated ?

Did the units look like this? g

If so those are micrograms. I'm not sure what you'd prefer to convert to but this calculator will convert them to grams and has other options too:

Here is a hardness unit converter (pick "English Degrees" which is another name for Clark degrees):
water hardness conversion

I usually convert to ppm.

The usual unit of measurement for most parameters in my local water report is ppm but I'm sure other places use other nomenclature. Googling the conversion would probably be the easiest to do. FYI 1 degree Clark is equivalent to about 14.5ppm of CaCO3.
