What's in South Central Wisconsin Water?

Whether your water is pumped from an aquifer or lake and then treated by the City or Municipality or drawn from a well water source, the fact is, it’s constantly on the move. Traveling through soil, city filtration facilities, wells and finally making its way through miles of pipelines into your home. 

On this journey, it’s easy for contaminants to be introduced back into already treated water, whether it’s from corrosion, leaks or breaks in aging infrastructure or groundwater contamination. With a water treatment system from Hellenbrand you can address the specific taste and quality issues your home’s water may have.

Q: What are the most common water issues in my area?

A: The high quality aquifer supplying our drinking water requires little treatment. Madison Water Utility disinfects the water with chlorine to reduce the risk of microbial contamination. A small amount of chlorine kills bacteria and viruses that can be present in groundwater. Chlorine also travels with the water and is ready to kill microbes that it might encounter in the system. Our goal is to maintain a chlorine residual above 0.1 milligrams per liter (mg/L) at all points in the distribution system. Typical concentrations range from 0.2 to 0.4 mg/L.

The largest water issue in Madison is hard water.
