PSJ awarded grant for water

The study will involve taking water samples from throughout the distribution area on a continuing basis, testing from plant to home or business, and sending the samples to Virginia Tech for analysis.

The hope is that by the end of the study the city will have a chemical addition protocol that will address the discoloration of water in the most cost-effective way.


This year’s initial uni-directional flushing of the water distribution system has moved throughout much of the city proper out to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, Grantland said.

He said crews should be finished with North Port St. Joe and Highland View by this week and move up to White City.

“It’s been a better process than last year,” Grantland said. “We saw a big difference.”

He cautioned that the flushing will cause upset in the lines and anybody impacted by sudden discoloration should call City Hall or Public Works to report the problem so that crews can come out and thoroughly flush the area.
