Champlain Valley water anlysis, 2007

Since the previous water analysis from 2005, I’ve since bought a house, which means the Champlain Water District sends me a report about how their water is the best water. Of note to me as a homebrewer is the analysis of certain chemical properties of the water. Since a few google searches for this information basically turned up my previous post and not the actual source of the data, here’s the data:

  • aluminum: < 0.06ppm
  • color: 2 units
  • alkalinity: 42-56 ppm as CaCO3
  • calcium hardness: 45-56 ppm as CaCO3
  • total hardness: 61 ppm as CaCO3
  • chloride: 17ppm
  • foaming agents: < 0.1 ppm
  • total organic carbon: 2.22 pm (1.60-3.1)
  • conductivity: 189 micro-S/cm (163-208)
  • pH: 7.56 (7.29 – 7.89)
  • total disolved solids: 113 ppm
  • iron: < 0.01ppm
  • manganese: .007ppm
  • sodium: 7.5ppm
  • potassium: 1.31 ppm
  • sulfate: 15 ppm
  • silver: < 0.05ppm
  • silica: 1.4ppm
  • silicon: 0.67 ppm
  • bromide: < 0.010 ppm
  • iodide: < 1 ppm
  • flouride: 0.97 ppm (0.71 – 1.21)
  • ammonium ion: 0.20 ppm (0.04 – 0.048)
