Welcome to the Village of Greenwich Ohio
Village of Greenwich- State of Ohio
March 4th 2015
Thursday morning, moisture inside a chlorine indicator allowed a sight glass to stick, thus giving a false reading. Morning testing indicated a high concentration of chlorine levels.
The Village took appropriate measures by notifying the Huron County Emergency Management Agency and the Ohio EPA. Jason Roblin from the EMA office assisted with notifying the public via the Norwalk Reflector and our local radio stations. I requested the use of South Central Local Schools - One Call system to further inform the public.
The main concentration of the chlorine is where there is a demand for water, and in this case it was in the vicinity of our water towers. Concentration levels were found at various points to be at 5.5ppm through the distribution system. By 11:00 a.m. testing results indicated that we were within normal levels throughout the downtown business area and the outer laterals of the distribution system were within normal levels by 4:00 p.m. Testing and monitoring continued throughout Thursday Night and Friday until 3:30 p.m.
My utility crew has been counseled with extra procedures to ensure safe and quality drinking water. I would publicly like to thank my utility crew for their quick response in rectifying to the situation. Jason Roblin of the Huron County EMA, and the South Central Local Schools for allowing the use of their One Call service.
