Water System Violated Drinking Water Standard.
NOT AN EMERGENCY!
(Message from the City of Wellington)
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although
this is not an emergency, as our customers you have the right to know
what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct
What should I do? You do not need to use an alternative (e. g. bottled)
water supply. However, if you have specific Health concerns, consult
What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. It if had been, you
would have been notified immediately. However; some people who
drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many
years may experience problems with their liver: kidneys, or central nerv-
ous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
The City of Wellington is continuing to correct the issue. For a complete
printout of info contact the WATER PLANT 620-434-5353.
