Tresckow under boil water advisory as new line placed

TRESCKOW — The village is on a boil water advisory indefinitely because a new water line is being connected.
The water line to Tresckow is being relocated because of the anticipated backfilling of a 298-acre strip pit near the village of Beaver Brook.
The old line was only 6 inches below the ground and officials feared it would be endangered by the reclamation project.
Municipal Authority — which provides water to Tresckow, as well as McAdoo and Kline — said the boil advisory is necessary because of the potential of bacteria in the new water line.
“We need to get two good, back-to-back samples, two days in a row, before we can lift the boil advisory,” DeBalko said.
The advisory will remain in effect until further notice, DeBalko said.
The authority advised residents of the boil advisory during a mass telephone call made Monday around 1 p.m. “They (crews) made most of the connections today (Monday),” DeBalko said.
They should be done (today).” Banks Twp.
Supervisor Joe Clark said crews have been working across the street from his home to connect the new line.
