Water Update and Rumors

We've been hearing some rumors about the quality and the safety of our water. Our water is SAFE to drink. We're testing daily to bring you the highest quality of water.

The City of Toledo has put advanced safe treatment processes in place this year to prepare for algal bloom season. We have quadrupled potassium permanganate feeds at the intake crib, quadrupled powder activated carbon at the Low Service Pump Station, brought online a new chlorine facility, and we now have 21 sondes blanketed throughout the western basin of Lake eErie that will provide for an early warning system. These sondes will provide advance notice of conditions in the Lake that are conducive to creating HABs (Harmful Algal Blooms).

Stay tuned to our Facebook (www.facebook.com/cityoftoledo) and Twitter (@city_of_toledo) channels for the most updated information!
