the time frame allowed by OAC Rule 3745-81-65(1)(2) and the PWS's approved

of our source water is necessary. Although this incident was not an emergency,
as our customers, you have the right to know what happenend and what we did to
correct this situation. Although 7 samples were collected in May, only 2 were
analyzed due to the samples not being delivered to the laboratory in a timely
manner. We have since changed shipping providers so that the samples will be
delivered by the following morning.
What should I Do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time. You do not need to boil your
water or take other corrective action.
What is being done?
Upon being notified of this violation, the water supply revised the sampling
schedule to add a replacement E. Coli count sample in October 2018. The water
supplier will take steps to ensure that adequate reporting will be performed
in the future.
