|Who Was Contacted:||Angela, McMullen Water|
|Contacted By:||OSBORN, DANIEL (COLUMBIA COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||OTHER REGULATORY - Do Not Drink Notice - follow up|
|Details:||I spoke with Angela from McMullen Water regarding City of Prescott's recent Do Not Drink Notice, due to an Arsenic Treatment system malfunction. Angela confirmed that the notices were distributed via signage and the staff knocking on doors of the water users' residences. We also confirmed that the replacement/updated components for the treatment system have been ordered and are in the process of being installed to repair the arsenic treatment.
I told Angela that City of Prescott will now be on a Monthly sampling schedule for Arsenic until both the treatment system can be fixed and the water system's sample results can show results below the MCL for a full year or more. Angela said she will try to have the system operator, Jim Oswald, forward Columbia County a copy of the "do not drink advisory" notice that was distributed.
