NEW Water Health Advisory
March 29, 2021
NOTICE: THIS ALERT ONLY APPLIES TO OUR WATER USERS IN WORDEN AND BALLANTINE WHO ARE SERVED BY OUR DISTRICT.
Our water system recently was notified that our source water has been determined to be under the influence of surface water and as such needs to be disinfected and filtered to meet surface water treatment regulations. Chlorine disinfection residuals have been increased but that is not completely effective against all possible surface water contaminants. Because nitrate levels have been detected above allowable levels, boiling the water is not an option for treatment. Bottled water is the safest alternative for those concerned. The full advisory may be viewed and downloaded from our website on our forms and reports page.
