Veterans Memorial Park Drinking Water Notice
Posted: August 26, 2020
Vernon Township is required to monitor drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not drinking water meets health standards.
During June 1 to June 30, 2020, the township did not complete all monitoring or testing for Total Coliform and E. Coli, and therefore, cannot be sure of the quality of drinking water during that time. Prior to serving water to the public in June, we failed to perform the state-approved start-up procedures for our water system.
As our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation. Because we failed to implement these procedures, we have violated a requirement of the Revised Total Coliform Rule.
