Rayne Water in Irvine California
Like most American cities, Irvine's water is actually very safe, and we contribute that to the hard work of the good folks over at the Public Utilities Department. To view the 2014 Irvine Water Quality Report click on the image to the right. This document offers important information about the known contaminants in our drinking water, the chemicals that are used for disinfecting our water, and facts about the hardness of the water.
Irvine's water is very hard, as you can tell from the report and this water hardness map. This explains part of the reason that our landfills are running over with worn out washing machines, dishwashers, water softeners, and other water-using appliances.
