Snoqualmie ‘s water treatment plant supplies moderately hard water to the community. As rainwater falls, it is naturally soft. However, as water makes its way through the ground and into waterways, it picks up minerals like chalk, lime, calcium, and magnesium. Since hard water contains essential minerals, it is sometimes the preferred drinking water, not only because of the health benefits, but also the flavor.
