Sutherland water: All clear.
Sutherland residents nt longer have to boil their water to eliminate the possibility of contamination, village maintenance superintendent Jason Lashley said Wednesday afternoon.
Lashley said the village were told the water was clean at 4:30 p.m. after two days of testing.
Lightning trippedan electrical breaker early Saturday morning, shutting down the village’s water pumps.
The water tower continued to supply homes and businesses for several hours.
No one realized the problem until early Sunday morning.
When offiicals learned of the problem, notices of a boil water advisory were posted and the news media was informed.
Whenever a water system is shut off and then restarted, harmful bacteria can possibly be dislodged from the system’s pipes and endlines, potentially allowing bacteria could mix into tap water.
