Bourbon's water source is an underground aquifer of sand and gravel left from a glacial outwash. It is pumped to the treatment plant by means of 200 feet deep welts. At the treatment plant, water is aerated and the iron is filtered out. Sodium fluoride is adjusted to the optimum safe level for the prevention of dental cavities in developing teeth. Blended sodium phosphate is added to develop a protective coating on the inside of pipes to prevent lead and copper from leaching into the water from your home's plumbing. lastly, chlorine is added to keep the water delivery system disinfected.
