Your Fredericksburg Area Water Specialists
Issues Common to Fredericksburg Area Households
Fredericksburg area residents’ water is treated by two water treatment facilities: Ni River Water Treatment Plant (which draws water solely from the Ni River Reservoir) and Motts Run Water Treatment Plant (which has two main source waters, the Rappahannock River and Motts Run Reservoir).
Fredericksburg area households tend to have three areas of concern in terms of their water:
What to Look For In and Around Your Home:
Chlorine / Chloramines
Used to kill harmful microorganisms found in water sources, higher levels of chlorine in drinking water can have possible negative effects on our health.
Sulfur / Odors
While giving water a rotten egg smell, high levels of sulfur in drinking water can cause stomach pain and nausea as well as other health problems particularly to infants.
Iron / Staining
Concentrations of iron will stain fixtures, tableware, and laundry with a rusty color that’s hard to remove. It will also leave deposits that can break loose from water piping that end up in your drinking water.
