Safe Water? Terrace Heights Water Customers Are Hoping For That
Yakima County Public Works officials continue to search for a source of E.Coli bacteria impacting the Terrace Heights Water System with hope the system will be back to normal by Thursday.
HOPING THINGS WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL BY WEDNESDAY
Officials from the public works department say testing for Coliform samples was supposed to happen on Monday but chlorine levels were to high so the first tests are happening Tuesday. Officials will be testing again on ? Wednesday with results expected on Thursday morning. A press release says Yakima County began reducing chlorine levels in the Terrace Heights Water System on Saturday, August 12. By Sunday officials say "chlorine levels were near typical levels in some parts of Zone 2a but not in all parts of the Zone. The warmer weather should help as property owners use more water for irrigation."
THINGS MAY GET BACK TO NORMAL OR MAY NOT
There's no guarantees. Officials say the dates may need to be shifted if chlorine levels remain elevated. In the meantime, the boil water advisory for Zone 2a of the Terrace Heights Water System remains in effect. If you have any questions, you may call 509-574-2300.
