Bacteria Detected in Some Madison Water Tests
August 30, 2012
Two out of 15 samples taken in August tested positive for the presence of coliform bacteria, while the standard is only one sample a month may test positive, the notice said.
Madison's licensed water operator, Sal DeBiasse, said the notice explained the situation best.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Drinking WaterWatch website shows Madison samples tested positive for coliform bacteria during seven other months since 2002, including one positive sample each month in May and July this year. August 2008 and July 2009 were months the website shows Madison multiple samples tested positive for coliform bacteria. The chlorine rate was increased to ensure water quality.
