Water Update - Wed Aug 30th
Following results of the dissolved oxygen testing throughout both ponds last week and the resulting calculations to determine what level/type of aeration needs to be added, we are now able to pass along the information on recommendations made that were made by the consultant.

Water Update - August 27
We received back the results of the recent water analysis that was undertaken. Algae and cyanobacteria were the cursers that were looked for within our raw water ponds and we are happy to report that there is no cyanobacteria bloom present which is good news.

Water Update for Residents
We appreciate the patience of the public while we continue to work on solutions, and we acknowledge the frustration in what appears to be a less than desirable speedy solution to the matter. Water treatment is a complex operation and we must ensure that any steps we take are approached logically and measured for result or impact for the problem to be resolved.
