The hard water experienced by many residents is due to minerals in our groundwater supply and are not a result of drinking water contaminants.  Hardness is caused by calcium and magnesium, which occur naturally in all waters.  Under certain conditions the calcium and magnesium will deposit on hard surfaces.  While these do not pose any threat to the quality of your drinking water from a health perspective, hard water can create aesthetic problems such as spots on glass and porcelain.
