Toledo!! You can stop boiling water. The tests came back good. And a note from the Seal Rock Water District which buys its water from Toledo.
Toledo city officials report that water samples taken from city water mains show that the water meets drinking water standards. Go ahead and drink it up. Boiling is no longer advised.
The warning came up after a large water main failed at the intersection of 1st and Butler Bridge Road. Repairs were made and the street repaired. And now the water is back flowing and it’s lab-tested verified to be safe to drink.
Thursday the Seal Rock Water District, which buys its water from Toledo, issued this news release commenting on the Toledo water interruption:
Seal Rock Water District
This information is being provided to Seal Rock Water District customers in response to recent developments centered around emergency repairs affecting the District’s source water provider, the City of Toledo.
Seal Rock staff has been monitoring developments in the past few days, and providing support as the City of Toledo successfully completed repairs to a section of ruptured water system. As a precaution the city issued a boiled water notice to its customers, and then followed up with water quality samples. Recently released lab results confirm that the water is safe for use and the boiled water advisory has been lifted, Toledo water meets or exceeds water quality standards.
The District would like to take this opportunity to alert its Seal Rock customers that at no time was the District’s water compromised as a result of emergency repairs to the Toledo system.
The District would like to thank the City of Toledo for their quick response to restoring the system to operation, and thank Seal Rock customers for their patience.
For those interested in more details regarding the District’s response to this issue, you are invited to attend the next Seal Rock District Board meeting scheduled for June 13th at 4:00 pm as the Board of Commissioners has placed this item on the agenda for discussion.
