Additional Update: Saturday January 10, 2009 4:00pm
The Boil Water order for the Wilkinsonville Water District remains in effect Saturday January 10, 2009. Samples were taken of the water system yesterday and some of samples that were taken returned positive for bacteria. There was no detection of E. Coli in the drinking water system. The district is currently undergoing disinfection and you may notice a chlorine odor in your water. Additional tests were taken today and more tests will be taken tomorrow. The district needs to receive negative results with no sign of bacteria for two rounds of testing before the Boil Water Order is lifted by DEP. If the samples taken today and tomorrow are negative the boil water order will be lifted sometime late Monday or Tuesday. As soon as we get any additional information we will update this site.
