The picturesque county of Hillsborough, New Hampshire was historically an agricultural and industrial area. Today, it’s a popular tourist location and is known for its beautiful scenery and plentiful bodies of water.

NH Tap serves this area with water testing and filtration services. If you’re a Hillsborough resident and are curious about your water quality, let’s dive into what we know.

Water quality in the Hillsborough County, NH area.

Water testing in Hillsborough County is conducted for the public water utility, which is fed by Loon Pond. According to the most recent Consumer Confidence Report, no violations of maximum concentration levels (MCLs) for contaminants were detected in 2022.

According to a report by the EWG (Environmental Working Group) from 2021, 10 total contaminants were detected, 6 of which exceeded their recommended health guidelines. These included:

  • Chloroform (a byproduct of chlorination)
  • Haloacetic acids (also byproducts of chlorine treatment)
  • Radium (a radioactive element and known carcinogen)

Although all legal limits were met, the EWG notes that these federal standards were set almost 20 years ago. Of course, every home’s water profile will vary and the only way to know for sure if you’re dealing with contamination is water testing.

Whether you’re supplied by a public water utility or a private well, testing your water will help you understand its composition and potential contaminants. From there, you’re then equipped to consider solutions for enhancing the safety of your home’s water supply. NH Tap specializes in providing water testing in Hillsborough County and detailed assessments, ensuring you have the most precise information.

Public Water Testing

For Hillsborough residents on the public water system, your supply is sourced from the surface water at Loon Pond and is managed by officials to meet state standards. However, as the EWG report indicates, stricter safety measures may better safeguard your health than current governmental standards. To better understand your water’s composition, you can schedule an in-home water test.

Well Water Testing

Hillsborough residents who rely on private wells are responsible for their own water testing and filtration. Without local oversight, your water is susceptible to contamination that could go entirely unnoticed. Some contaminants are effectively invisible and don’t leave behind signs to indicate their presence. Other contaminants do show symptoms such as frothiness, sandy residue, or discoloration. Whether you’re noticing unusual signs or not, a water test is the best way to know what’s actually in your water.

PFAS Water Testing

Across New Hampshire, PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) have presented a problem to residents. These harmful chemicals infiltrate water systems and don’t go away unless specially filtered. If ingested, PFAS can cause serious health effects including increased risk of cancer, male infertility, liver damage, and compromised immune systems. If you discover they are an issue in your water supply, specialized filtration systems can prevent any harm from coming to you or your family.
