Water Quality

TASTE, ODOR, HARDNESS:

In early 2013, the City of Longview switched their source of water from the Cowlitz River to a well system. The new source water is safe to drink, but it has different minerals and properties that have raised concerns among those receiving the water. Some people have reported a different odor to the water and many have noticed the hardness of the water (white deposits, etc.).

The following links to the City website answer some of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) and the City will be updating information related to addressing these concerns.


LEAD:

A survey was conducted by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) in 2016-2017 to identify lead lines in public water systems. This link to the DOH website provides the results of this survey and additional information about lead.

Based on the best information available, BHWSD does not have lead service lines. Under DOH guidelines, BHWSD performs routine tests for lead and copper in the distribution system and have found the results to be below the regulatory action level.
