Water Changes - April 22nd, 2014

The Town of Edson has had a number of questions regarding the changes in smell/taste of the water in some homes over the weekend. We did have a new well come on line late last week which has caused these changes.

All water was tested and is safe to drink.

There has also been a slight increase in the amount of chlorine.

The water should clear up a bit in the next few weeks as the rest of the wells that were getting the CT Disinfection system upgrades come back online and the hydrant flushing is complete.

Hydrant flushing starts May 4th and usually lasts 1-2 weeks. If you find the water is cloudy try running your taps for a few minutes and it may clear up a bit.

Any further questions can be directed to Public Works at 780-723-6461.
