Hard water

All of the water in the Anglian Water region is classed as hard to very hard. This is because the ground rock has a high chalk (calcium carbonate) content. As water moves through these rocks it dissolves some of the chalk and this makes the water hard.

Hard water is perfectly safe and there’s lots of evidence it can even be good for you. 

Calcium is vital for healthy growth. It is found in many types of foods but did you know that in a hard water area drinking water can contribute towards your daily calcium intake?
