Water study

Dave Kozan of CDM Smith, the company that designed the city’s surface water treatment plant, said preliminary data analysis has been completed and profile testing of the plant and distribution system would begin in the next two weeks.

That testing will continue for roughly three weeks, Kozan said, and at that juncture the information collected should be sufficient to provide the city with possible short-term chemical treatment options to address water discoloration and prepare a report on options for a longer-term study of the system.

“We are behind schedule due to the analysis of all the data we were provided,” Kozan said, noting that the amount of data on the where, how, what and when of water problems was more voluminous that anticipated. “The profile testing will bring us back on schedule because there will be less information needed” on the back end.
