More than million Washington State residents, 85 percent of the state's population, get their drinking water from public water systems. Public water systems and their water works operators are our first line of defense against contaminants getting into . The final map shows that the southwest of the city has optimum groundwater quality, and, in general, the groundwater quality decreases south to north of . The quality of water in major aquifers in southwestern Washington was addressed in terms of inorganic-constituent, trace-metal, and fecal-coliform concentrations. Results of this assessment indicate that the groundwater in southwestern Washington can be characterized as soft to moderately hard with a low concentration of dissolved solids. Groundwater QualityIntroductionGroundwater quality refers to the state of water that is located beneath Earth’s surface. Groundwater can gather in cracks in subsurface rocks and in between soil many compounds can dissolve in water and others can be suspended in water, there is a potential for contamination with toxic compounds.
