|PWS Name:||COVERED WAGON TP NORTH WELL #1|
|Who Was Contacted:||Offie Johnson|
|Contacted By:||BAKER, SUSAN (JACKSON COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||WATER QUALITY ALERT RESPONSE|
|Details:||Met with the operator at system. He informed me that the repeat samples submitted yesterday resulted in two of the distribution samples being absent and one closed to the well present for coliform. We discussed sampling technique and weather conditions during sample collection.
Inspected his chlorinator which is seems to be working. Chlorine residual taken during this visit and was .09 mg/L. He is using over the counter chlorine. He is not conducting any residual testing, nor does he have a chlorine test kit. Corrective actions to be taken immediately. Purchasing approved chlorine and chlorine test kit. I will be meeting with him in the next few weeks to ensure that he has purchased the correct chlorine and to do some training with the color wheel and DPD reagent. Visually saw that residential neighbor also using this well had bypassed the chlorinator with piping to his house. Met with neighbor who was unaware of the public water system requirement for chlorine disinfection. Bypassing will be removed. The population on this system including the neighbor is 17 residents.
