Reasons: VOCs
None
 
Details: SUMMARY: Customer complaints of odor DETAILS: Three customers complained of diesel odor in water. Collect samples when odor present and analyze to confirm. If positive ID of contaminants, look where complaints are located to identify commonality. Evaluate possible source from lack of back-flow prevention devices. Resolve if main or customer pipe is a polymer (PVC, PEX, HDPE...) or concrete as hydrocarbon fuels can leach through from outside. If polymer used, look at potential sources near that main or customer location. Other possibility is that there is algae die-off in Foster Lake generating byproducts that are mistaken as diesel. The complaintants may be the more sensitive of the population. ACTION NEEDED: None
