Assistance Type: WATER QUALITY ALERT RESPONSE
Reasons: Coliform
N/A
 
Details: SUMMARY: Two TC+s DETAILS: Salem had 2 routine TC+s today. Official results arrive today at 2:30 pm, but lab gave unofficial results this morning.

Lacey has taken 6 repeats in the distribution, as prescribed. She also had 2 well samples, ASR #2 & ASR #5 for her triggered samples (I told her not to take more two more at the wells for the second Routine positive). ASR #1 & ASR #4 were not on at the time. She also turned off all wells after drawing those Triggereds just in case that could have an affect.

She doesn’t know why they got 2 TC+s. She suspects either lab analysis, or autoclaving of glass sample bottles was flawed.
The water is a mix at that pressure zone. ACTION NEEDED: none. Await results. UPDATE: Lacey notified the department thursday 10/9/14 that all repeat samples including well samples were absent for total coliform and E. coli.
