DRINKING WATER NOTICE

The City of Van Wert Did Not Meet Monitoring and Reporting Requirements

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 October 2020 we did not complete all monitoring or testing which was required. Specifically,

Filter 5 had a turbidity level of greater than 1.0 NTU in 2 consecutive measurements taken 15 minutes apart during the month of October 2020.  The City of Van Wert failed to produce a filter profile within 7 days of the exceedance and report that the filter profile had been produced or report the obvious reason for the exceedance.

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?                         

The City reported that the filter profile had been produced on November 8, 2020.  We are taking steps to ensure the requirement to produce a filter profile will be completed on time if future exceedances occur.

For more information, please contact Donald Lippi at 419-238-1417 or at 1260 S. Washington St. Van Wert, OH 45891.

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.
