I read the Frisco website water quality report which is dated 2003 and have a question and comment about Frisco water. We moved here from Coppell about a month ago and notice the foul smell and taste of the tap water which I understand is purified from Lake Lavon. Since moving here, our dog has developed urinary infections and has been sick. We started him on bottled water after several hundred dollars in vet bills which did not improve his condition. I understand that the "grassy, earthy smell and taste" of the water is not a health risk, but is it possible that it could irritate certain people and animals? The water seems to have either an unusual hardness or a oily feel to it in the shower. Is the water softened? What, if anything, is added to the water (flouride, etc.)? Thanks.

I am not aware of any type of health risk due to the taste and odor problems caused by our hot summers. You may contact the North Texas Municipal Water District at 972-442-5405 for additional information. We post the current water quality analysis for the District on our website. Total hardness for June was 170 mg/l, which is considered hard, and flouride is added to the water. The flouride content for June was 0.74 mg/l, which is within the range to prevent tooth decay. Thanks for your inquiry. If you have other questions, you may contact my office at 972-335-5520.
