A major focus when developing a new drinking water source is determining whether the source will meet drinking water quality standards. The typical practice is to obtain water quality samples, submit them for laboratory sampling, and compare the results with current water quality standards. However, sometimes a good water quality source may not be compatible with existing water sources or water system facilities. There are even times when water from different depths within the same well may not be compatible with each other. In any of these cases, physical and chemical interactions can sometimes result in major water quality concerns within the drinking water system. This presentation will explore potential consequences of incompatible sources through multiple examples.
