Iron is the fourth most common element found in the Earth’s crust. Iron is commonly found in groundwater, which is the source for private wells. Iron can also be found in older household pipes and dead-ends in water distribution pipes. Water treatment is available to reduce iron in water. To minimize rust stains and discoloration, water may be filtered or undergo an ion exchange to reduce soluble iron or iron that is too small to be filtered. In some cases, both filtration and water softening may be required.
