CUSTOMER NOTICE UPDATE JANUARY 18, 2018
WATER SAMPLES SHOW NO COLIFORM

Dear Water Customer:
Last week 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 a week of chlorination, follow up samples show the chlorine was effective; there is no coliform present. We have discontinued chlorination and the operations crew is flushing the remaining residual chlorine from the lines. 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.
