|Advisory Type:||Boil Water|
|Reason:||E. coli, Unconfirmed (Voluntary)|
|Begin Date:||Apr 22, 2019|
|Date Lifted:||May 20, 2019|
|Contacted By:||TEMPLIN, REBECCA (DWP - SPRINGFIELD)|
|Who Was Contacted:||Calla Mosczynski|
|Details:||The system is on a boil notice because the surface water source (North Umpqua River) was turned on without the disinfection treatment being turned on. A combination of well water and surface water was sent into the distribution system without the correct treatment, therefore the bacteria sample taken 4/18/2019 resulted in EC+ results. The system has turned off the surface water source, will be shock chlorinating the system, and taking more coliform samples before lifting the advisory.
Lifted 05/20/2019: The system increased the chlorine residual in the distribution system, turned off the surface water source, and took a clean coliform sample (taken 5/1/2019). The system has d security (changed locks) so this will not happen in the future.
