Does Edmond have hard water?
We do have hard water. This is not a health issue but can cause some problems with lime stains (white on tile grout) and appliances that use water. It is not economically feasible for the City to soften the water we supply as the resulting costs could not be justified. We recommend customers consider a home water softening unit if they are experiencing recurring issues with hard water. Hardness can vary from location to location in the City as we use water from several sources including wells, surface water (Arcadia Lake) and purchased water from Oklahoma City.
