The Village chlorinated the water supply system on Thursday August 4 and Friday August 5, 2016 (see the Drinking Water System Advisory issued August 3, 2016) and took samples from 13 monitoring sites on Tuesday August 9 and Wednesday August 10, 2016. Results of these samples did not show the presence of Total Coliform bacteria and were acceptable for bacteriological quality.
The chlorine that was introduced to the water supply has been flushed from the system.
Maintaining high-quality drinking water for system users is of great importance to the Village. Additional samples will be submitted next week to verify the effectiveness of the disinfection, and thereafter water quality will be monitored every two weeks in order to protect public health.
