I recall high nitrates in the tap water out that way. It actually played to my benefit for the plants. I played a trick on the PetsMarts folk in Abilene by taking a test bottle from my tank and one fresh from tap. The one from tap was really high and the guy was recommending a water change before I bought any fish. Then I gave him the one from the tank (perfectly clean because of the plants), and let him in on my secret, lol!
