Does the City add fluoride to our water?
The public water supply does contain low levels of naturally occuring fluoride in its water supply. This naturally occuring fluoride typically is derived from erosion of natural mineral deposits.
Do we have hard water?
The City of Tracy obtains 97% of its public water supply from surface water sources: Stanislaus River via South San Joaquin Irrigation District (70% of water demand), San Joaquin Delta via the Delta Mendota Canal (27% of water demand ). Both surface water sources are treated to meet Federal/State water quality standards. The sources are considered to be low in minerals and considered soft water. The minerals which contribute to water hardness are calcium and magnesium and are primarily found in groundwater sources (well water). Since the City of Tracy utilizes surface water which is soft, hardness is not an issue. Therefore water softeners are no longer needed in Tracy.
A money saving tip: If you have a water softener, turn it off and see if you notice a difference. If you continue to run your water softener, set the water quality/ hardness setting for 2 grains per gallon which will reduce the amount of salt used.
Does the City have an RV dump and does it cost anything?
Yes the City does have an RV dump located at 3900 Holly Drive and is no cost to Tracy residents.
