Our water system recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this situation is not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

A routine drinking water inspection conducted on 03/16/2022 by the state drinking water program identified the following violations that may pose a risk to public health.

Steps We Are Taking

  • Inadequately treated or inadequately protected water may contain disease-causing organisms.
    • These organisms can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.
  • Failure to perform the required start-up procedures prior to serving water to the public has the potential to distribute contaminated water. When our system shuts down operation, the lack of pressure in our pipes can allow the entry of bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms into the drinking water. By performing start-up procedures such asflushing the pipes, disinfecting the water, and collecting a coliform bacteria sample before we open, we can be sure that we are providing you with safe water.
  • Inadequately maintained storage tanks, identified through inspections, may allow contaminants or disease-causingorganisms to enter the drinking water, which can cause diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.
  • Uncontrolled cross connections can lead to a back pressure or siphonage event that may allow contaminants or disease-causing organisms to enter the drinking water, which can cause diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.

What does this mean? What should I do?

  • There is nothing you need to do at this time. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

We anticipate resolving the problem by 04/21/2022. For more information, please contact Van Brown at
