What is in my water?
In general Harford County's treated water contains chlorine to disinfect the water (1.0 to 1.5 parts per million), and fluoride (0.7 parts per million). The pH of the treated water is maintained at 7.2 - 7.3 and phosphate is added to protect piping. Carbon is used to remove odor and taste, but the carbon is filtered out before the finished water leaves the plant.

A Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is prepared annually and is provided to all customers in accordance with federal and state requirements.
