CUSTOMER NOTICE UPDATE September 5, 2018
WATER SAMPLES SHOW NO COLIFORM

Dear Water Customer:

On August 21, 2018 we informed you of our plan to do a light chlorination of certain parts of our water service area to cure a recent occurrence of total coliform bacteria.  As a reminder, the tests detected total coliform, which exists in the environment, but were negative for disease causing bacteria such as E-coli.

Following two weeks of chlorination, follow up samples show the chlorine was effective; there is no coliform present.  We have discontinued chlorination. With the seasonal high water usage we are experiencing, we estimate the remaining residual chlorine will be flushed from the water lines within a week.  Once the chlorine is eliminated we will again, sometime next week, submit samples to the lab.

We will inform you of the sample results only if they again show the presence of total coliform.  Otherwise, you may consider that the tests show that the water is back to normal.

My contact information is below if you have questions or if we can provide more information.

You may also email owsi@portludlowassociates.com and I can respond from there.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.
