The Connecticut Water company today (Feb. 14) lifted a “boil-water advisory” for customers in the London Park water system in Hebron.
In a notice sent to customers, and posted on its Web site, the company states:
“Connecticut Water is pleased to inform you that water quality testing in the London Park water system in Hebron, which serves customers on Carolyn Drive, Jan Drive, Laura Drive and London Road, has confirmed that your water is safe to drink and use for all other purposes.
We collected water samples after water service had been restored yesterday (2/13/12) following the repair of a broken fitting at the well. The samples were tested in a state certified laboratory, and the lab has confirmed that the water is safe to drink.
There is no longer any need to take any precautions before you use your tap water.
Connecticut Water appreciates your patience while worked to restore service and then to test the water to confirm its quality.”
Customers with questions should call customer service at 1-800-286-5700.
Public meeting Thursday, Feb 16
Also, a reminder about Thursday’s “public availability” meeting with Connecticut Water…
In January 2012, he Connecticut Water Company issued a drinking water warning for the Amston Lake water system – which serves 181 customers in Hebron, Lebanon and Colchester – when unsafe levels of copper were found in the water.
When the advisory was lifted, the company said the water was safe but that the cause of the elevated levels of copper was not discovered. In a recent update, the company stated, “the investigation is continuing into the underlying cause of the drop in pH that led to the elevated levels of copper.”
Connecticut Water is hosting a “public availability session” for customers of the Amston Lake water system from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16, at the Douglas Library in Hebron.
Customers will have the opportunity to ask questions directly of the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH), the local health department, Connecticut Water and Matco Services (the consultant that has been analyzing pipe samples).
More details about this meeting, as well as ongoing investigation of the copper problem is available on the company Web site at http://www.ctwater.com/en/News/Service%20Updates.aspx
