Details: SUMMARY: Tier 1 Boil Water Notice Due to Loss of Pressure DETAILS: On June 30, 2010, Jonnie Hammond of the Department of Environmental Quality notified the Drinking Water Program that the City of Merrills water supply well went dry. The City of Merrill was contacted and Debbie Fuller confirmed that the well went dry and the water system lost water pressure on June 29, 2010. Ms. Fuller indicated that City has activated their Initial Command System in order to address the emergency. The City has informed the media of the loss of water and they are working on correcting the problem by lowering the pump level. Ms. Fuller will also issue a Tier 1 - No Pressure Boil Water Notice. The notice will be delivered door-to-door by the Klamath County Search and Rescue Team. Ms. Fuller was also advised that the City will need to follow the BMP for Service Outage Due to Reduced Pressure Events (see action needed). Copies of the Tier 1 Notice and BMP were emailed to the water system. ACTION NEEDED: Flush affected area to remove any infiltrated water, apply temporary chlorination.Restore service, verify service pressure and chlorine residuals. Collect a coliform bacteria samples after chlorine residual returns to zero to provide a record of corrective action effectiveness. Mark as a "special sample" and retain in utility records for 2 years. If the post-corrective action coliform sample result shows the presence of coliforms, resample per coliform sampling procedures. If second sample results show presence of coliforms, contact state drinking water program to consult on corrective action. Provide copy of the Public Notice within 10 days of issuance.
