(Neb)-Hemingford Chlorinating Water After Coliform Readings

By: John Axtell Posted at: 01/10/2017 08:20 AM
HEMINGFORD - The Village of Hemingford Water Department has begun a 9-day schedule of chlorinating the village drinking water after routine testing revealed the presence of coliform.

      Coliform in itself is not harmful to human beings, but is an indicator of a potential problem with other bacteria that could be harmful.

       Hemingford officials emphasize that there have been no reports of anyone becoming ill as a result of using city water and that chlorination is simply a precaution.

      They do say that residents who are sensitive to chlorine or who have fish or other pets that do not tolerate chlorinated water very well should take immediate steps to avoid any problems.

      Although scheduled to run 9 days, the emergency chlorination will continue until test results return to normal. The public will be notified when that occurs.
