Earlier this year we hired an outside engineering firm to help us identify the cause of our water issues. We recently received information on the suspected cause.
Based on the information we received, our water issues are likely caused by a non-harmful iron bacteria. Information regarding this iron bacteria is available from the National Groundwater Association at http://www.ngwa.org/Documents/ClipCopy/Iron-Bacteria.pdf.
We have already begun planning to clean and treat our wells and to flush the entire distribution system. We have also notified the Ohio EPA of this issue and will continue to work with them – as we have been for the past year – on our remediation plans.
As our remediation plans are put into action and as more information becomes available, it will be posted here.
