Yes. it is a small town of around 1500 residents I think. The water was high in alkalinity, and about 38 grains/ gallon hardness, & pushing the allowable tolerances for arsenic.The whole towns water is RO? That is amazing.
It was so bad that a new water heater would start leaking within 4-10 years. The landfill was always full of water heaters that had rusted out. I went through 3 water heaters within about 14 years, & replaced my most current 1 just before they got the R.O. system going.
I had a TDS meter for measuring total dissolved solids in the tap water & it would only read up to 2000 ppm & it would not read high enough to measure the water
I know of another town of about the same population within a 2 hour drive that has had the same type of water treatment plant.
I am not sure what kind of capacity it has but it seems like it is able to keep up with residents and lawn watering in the summer with no issues.
