Default Attention Water Experts - Advice needed

Here is a link to the latest "report" on my drinking water.

http://www.dovertownship.org/Downloads/Information/Public_Works/CCR_2008.pdf

Is there anything in here that I should be concerned with? I've been using spring water @ $1.00 a gallon and that extra couple of bucks is something I'd like to trim.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can read this... and knows what they are looking at!

Steve

There's no information in that report at all that relates to brewing. You'll have to call your water company or have a test done yourself if you want any useful info.

Yep, what he said. This is the same safe-drinking water act information that I received from my local water company. I suggest you spend the $16.00 for a Ward Labs water test that will provide you a comprehensive report on the water minerals that are important. Best money I've spent.

Default Use a carbon filter

to remove chlorine and trihalomethane, as said prior, no real brewing information here.
