Default LBC water report - treatment?

This might be going overboard, but I just spent the last 15 minutes analyzing my local water report. Based on what I've read the only thing concerning are Calcium 26ppm and Magnesium 6.8ppm being low.

My understanding is that brewing with malt extract I should be fine since these should be supplied by the malt. Based on what is here I should be okay without treating the water, right?

You may have better luck over at Brew Science. They deal with a lot of water reports. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f128/

For extract brewing, though, it really doesn't matter much, but you will DEFINITELY want to find out how much chlorine and/or chloramine your city uses as those will need to be removed before brewing.
