The water system has not been able to meet the required turbidity standard set by the Division of Drinking Water. The high turbidity poses health risk for consumer as pathogens may contaminate treated drinking water. The Water System will replace its in-line filtration system, which is not an approved surface water treatment technology, with contact clarification gravity treatment to improve turbidity of treated water. The water system will also install baffles inside clearwell to improve disinfection contact time, expand backwash tank to accommodate the new system, and remove cross connection piping to comply with drinking water regulations.
