Where does Nottingham water come from?

One-third of Nottingham water comes from groundwater. The remaining two-thirds of the water in Nottingham comes from rivers and reservoirs, with most coming from upland regions like the Peak District.

These sources are what affect the hardness of the water in Nottingham.

Nottingham Water Hardness

Nottingham water hardness is rated as soft.

Water hardness refers to the number of minerals found in the water. The higher the amount of minerals located in the water, the ‘harder’ the water is considered to be. The lower quantity of minerals in the water, the ‘softer’ your water is.

Rainwater is quite soft as it doesn't contain any minerals when it comes down. The water hardness will change, however, as it goes through the cycle of water. When rainwater seeps into the ground, it will pick up minerals, such as calcium and magnesium.

It is normal to have a certain amount of minerals found in your water as this is a natural process.
