|Contacted By:||STROMQUIST, IAN (HOOD RIVER COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||WATER QUALITY ALERT RESPONSE|
|Details:||At 3:35pm, 9/17/2020, we received an email alert regarding a 'Coliform Positive' test result at this water system. We attempted to call the operator, we only reached voice mail.
This morning, the operator reached out to us via email, and said: "...I received a positive coliform sample for Wyeth yesterday. I just now re sampled and will run it into the Web this morning..."
We responded to the email, and said: "...Thank you for reaching out. I am concerned that starting in 2017 (shortly after this well was activated), there have consistently been coliform positive test results in this water system, in September. Despite multiple site visits, I have been unsuccessful identifying the cause. I am concerned that this is a seasonal condition occurring in the ground water source (below ground, out of sight)... I'm not sure what to propose for the long-term, except that we shouldn't ignore this problem..."
