FAQs

  •  Where does Hill get its water? 

    •  From deep wells (groundwater) located south of Mooresville on the White Lick Creek aquifer.
  • Is it hard water? 

    • Yes, very.  20-22 grains per gallon (gpg).  A water softener could be advantageous.

  • Does the water contain iron? 

    • Very little.  Less than  0.1 milligrams per liter (mg/l).  Iron can cause a reddish stain that discolors laundry and plumbing fixtures.  It can also create an unpleasant taste or odor.  That is why Hill filters the water prior to delivery.   Our iron removal filtration plant removes nearly all of the iron from the water.
  • Does the water contain chlorine? 

    • Yes.  For disinfection purposes.  Typically between 0.5 and 0.8 mg/l.
  • Does the water contain fluoride? 

    • Yes.  To aid in the prevention of tooth decay as recommended by the American Dental Association and Indiana State Department of Health. Our goal is to maintain a fluoride residual of 1.0 mg/l.  However, the residual may range from 0.8 to 1.2 mg/l.
