As someone who lives in O’Fallon, and is on O’Fallon city water, I have to say it is nasty. So much mineral content. I have to descale my dish washer with every load or else the next load is just covered in a thick white film. Sinks, tubs, etc always covered in hard water build up despite cleaning it off frequently.
