Your Los Angeles Home Drinks.
Greater Los Angeles and the surrounding communities, from Beverly Hills to Culver City, access drinking water from many sources. With such a large population, Southern Californians have to rely on combinations of natural and municipal resources to meet the area’s growing water needs.
City water comes primarily from the San Joaquin and Sacramento river deltas, where it travels through an enormous, concrete aqueduct before reaching the municipal treatment centers.
Snow melt from the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range provides water for the area when snowpack allows, while other areas of Los Angeles access water from the Colorado River to the east or the local, though limited, groundwater system.
Water Treatment in Los Angeles and Beyond
With this combination of water resources, Los Angeles water quality often faces our share of water filtration and treatment issues:
- Surface water, like rivers and snow melt, absorb contaminants that can be harmful for consumption as well as annoying around the home. Most of these contaminants include naturally-occuring bio materials and minerals. This means water quality can worsen seasonally when warming temperatures contribute to algal blooms, or heighten water sensitivity to microorganism growth.
- Ground water presents its own treatment challenges and filtration issues, so LA residents with primarily ground water service may see different water problems than those using water from LA’s surface water sources. Most often, these manifest as hard water problems which cause buildup on faucets and fixtures, and can be hard on appliances and plumbing.
One of the biggest water challenges facing Los Angeles and greater southern California is water scarcity. As climate changes continue to intensify droughts, communities can expect to see cities invest in — and use — a greater variety of water resources to supplement unpredictable rivers and aquifers. As this process expands, the need for dependable, effective water filtration will become increasingly important.
