Water Quality – Saline


Monitoring Requirements Not Met for City of Saline

We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During January 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017 we did not monitor for nitrate and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.

What should I do? There is nothing you need to do at this time. This is not an emergency. You do not need to boil water or use an alternative source of water at this time. Even though this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.

The table below lists the contaminant(s) we did not properly test for, how often we are supposed to sample for this contaminant, how many samples we are supposed to take, how many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date we collected follow-up samples.

What happened? What is being done? We inadvertently missed taking a sample within this required sampling period. We are making every effort to assure this does not happen again. Samples taken October 25, 2017 show that all results met acceptable limits.

For more information, please contact Mr. Steve Wyzgoski at 734-429-4907 ext. 2324

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by the City of Saline.
