|PWS Name:||USFS BEAR SPRINGS RS|
|Who Was Contacted:||James Belliveau|
|Contact Phone:||508-215-6110 (Email address hidden)|
|Contacted By:||BAILEY, NICOLE (WASCO COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||OTHER REGULATORY - Repeat coliform sample requested to be labeled as routine- denied|
|Details:||I requested to the state yesterday that a sample that Bear springs took on the 20th of July be changed from a repeat to a routine sample as today is the last day of the month.
That request was denied for a few factors::
Advisory was lifted on 7/17 (prior to these samples being collected)
The chlorine residual on the June samples was 0
The chlorinator is currently broken (as of 7/30 Level 2 investigation)
The chlorine level recorded on these samples is 1.4
The highest recorded chlorine level in the past 3 years is 1.0 (once) and generally averages between 0.02 and 0.8.
The assumption is that the chlorinator was likely broken in June and not repaired in-between then and the July samples. The chlorine residual on these results is 1.5X higher than their average high reading. As a result, these samples appear to be a result of shock chlorination. With that, they are not representative of normal operations.
