What can you smart types tell me about my water? I really have no clue when it comes to the water chemistry stuff.

Thanks in advance

Sorry, that report does not contain enough of the data brewers need to assess water. All I see are sulfate, chloride, and sodium. The most important data: calcium, magnesium, and alkalinity (or bicarbonate) are not provided. You either have to call the water plant directly or have a sample sent to a lab for testing.
