Contaminants of concern (iron and manganese) are secondary contaminants.
The City of Hillsboro conducted a flushing exercise on April 14-15th 2021 off the line of concern and will inform DWS of results.
Update 5/14/2021: Pre- and post-flush levels of iron and manganese are below the MCLs (0.3 mg/L and 0.05 mg/L respectively).
