Town flushes main transmission line in strategic approach to solve water clarity issue
It appears the town has made some progress by taking a more strategic approach to clearing up water colour complaints.
On June 13 of this year the town issued the first of a number of press releases dealing with complaints of tinted water coming through area resident’s taps. One of the reasons identified for the coloured water was a mechanical failure at the water treatment plant that released an overabundance of a common water treatment chemical called Potassium Permanganate. In the process of flushing the system, more existing sediment in the lines was stirred, and the water colour problems have persisted.
