Default Local Water Company Analysis

My local water company's analytic testing results is at: http://www.wjww.com/html/pdf/analytical_results.pdf

Am I missing something or is the result for Ca completely off given the results for Alkalinity and TDS? Isn't it more likely that the figure should be stated in ppb rather than ppm?

Incidentally my API test of the tap water comes up ~1 dGH.

I'd say the results for the Ca are a typo. I believe it is impossible to have a TDS of 38.3 with 5200 ppm of Ca in the water I would guess someone left a decimal point out and 5 ppm is correct as you suggested.
