White Powder in Water

My room-mate Clint boiled 5 pots of water over the course of a day to make his soups and ramen, and in the bottom, there ended up being white powder. It was crazy the amount of it - I ran my finger over the pot and got this.

It is just dissolved limestone and silica that is in most water coming from the ground. So chemically it is CaCO3 and maybe SiO2 and MgOH2. Harmless and probably giving you some mineral supplements.


That is probably true, as it tasted like chalk. But wow... there was a lot of it.

If it tastes like chalk, it probably is chalk. The question I have is has your area been having drought issues? The reason why I ask is that chalk would be a sediment which would normally float down to the bottom of a water source. If a lot is coming out, makes me wonder if they are dealing with lower water levels than usual? Could be wrong though.

Looks like hard water deposits to me. I get a little of that on the bottom of my stainless steel pots.
