As far as your analysis went it looked mostly fine, but there were some
glaring omissions and at least one error.  All in all, that makes it
pretty difficult to say much.

Try to get them to fill in a few blanks:  potassium, magnesium, calcium
and bicarbonate and/or hardness and alkalinity are important.  Either
total phosphorus or total phosphates would be another goody.  The total
dissolved solids number (17) is almost certainly in error - the sulfate
concentration (43.8) alone is higher than the reported total.  A total
dissolved solids concentration of 170 rather than 17 would be more likely
and probably would indicate very acceptable water.
