Watertown's tap water, and that of the surrounding area, comes from Lake Kampeska and the Big Sioux River — more specifically, via two different treatment plants that source water from the river and deliver it to homes and businesses. This means the water we drink and use in our homes can be impacted by surface water issues like agricultural and industrial contamination, as well as environmental factors, like seasonal algae blooms or flood debris.
While both the Lake Kampeska and the Big Sioux are plentiful sources for drinking water, the nature of this kind of water supply also means water quality can be easily compromised. Watertown water requires multiple layers municipal treatment, which can impact water quality in its own right, and may not leave behind the most pleasant side effects.
Water Quality Issues In Watertown Area
Surface water supplies, like rivers, often note water quality issues like:
- Cloudy, turbid, or discolored water, usually reddish or brownish
- Noticeable and sometimes unpleasant water odors like sulfur, metals, or chlorine
- Rust-colored or blue/green stains or spots
- Stains on dishes, fixtures, laundry, sinks, tubs and more
Using river water also increases the potential for contamination because the natural filtering process that takes place with groundwater doesn’t take place. Around Watertown this can often manifest as:
- Microbial contamination like viruses and bacteria contaminating the river from septic systems
- Flooding and stormwater runoff that can increase the concentrations of salts and metals in the water
- Chemicals and byproducts from industrial and farming activity can easily enter the water supply during heavy rains
- Pesticides and herbicides from homes and farms naturally run downstream into the river
How Contaminants Affect Your Home and Family
Surface water problems in Watertown can cause more than just drinking water issues. Untreated water can impact your home and in some cases, even your health. Water with added contaminants can react with plumbing causing it to corrode more easily, or leach additional materials into your water. Additionally, these contaminants can sometimes exacerbate certain health conditions, contributing to some cancers especially among children, the elderly, and pregnant women.
Watertown Water Quality
Depending on where you live in Watertown, your water may contain a variety of contaminants at various levels. These specific contaminants, and their levels, can change seasonally with the river quality, so it’s a good idea to have your water tested, and retested. If the conditions at your tap change, or if it’s been longer than six months, then it’s time to have your tap water tested.
