Statement from the Public Works Supervisor regarding “blue/green” drinking water

April 25, 2015

To:  Residents and Citizens of Milton

From: Greg Wingo, Public Works Supervisor

 

During the past two weeks, a few phone calls were received concerning the issue of blue/green water coming out of faucets.   I visited each residence to evaluate the water issue. Water samples were taken and the pH tested a little lower than the usual levels.  To continue exploring the cause of low pH, each well was tested and one well tested with low pH levels. To bring pH levels back to normal, two wells are operating together to stabilize the pH. The water is safe to drink.

The cause of the blue/green water is not due to any work being performed on the water towers.  While maintenance is being performed on the Chandler Street water tower and construction at the Shipbuilders water tower, water samples are collected and tested more frequently. Daily samples are being tested throughout Town and we will continue this routine until the water tower projects are complete.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me or Mrs. Kristy Rogers, Town Clerk.
