pH of Tap Water Adjusted in Metro Vancouver

pH test stripThe pH of tap water distributed throughout Metro Vancouver is now approximately pH 7.5. This adjustment is made at the water treatment plants before the water goes into the distribution system to prevent corrosion of pipes.

A combination of lime and CO2 is used to raise the pH at the Seymour/Capilano filtration plant. Soda ash is used for this adjustment at the Coquitlam water treatment plant

A pH of 7 is neutral. Above 7, pH becomes increasingly alkaline; below 7, increasingly acid.
