No I do not know the count but you can sure smell the sulfer when it comes out of the faucet.

If it were me, I would take a sample to a proper lab and have it tested. A high-end fish store might test for sulfur, though doubtful. The lab could probably also suggest methods to deal with this, if it is necessary. Live plants in the aquarim will assimilate some sulfur as a nutrient, and take up some as toxin, but the effectiveness of this depends upon the level of sulfur in the water.
