As a follow up to the letter mailed to water customers earlier this month, noting the Nebraska Health and Human Services violation, the City of Wayne wants to provide the following information:
- Subsequent testing found no sign of bacteria in the water and there was no need for residents to change their normal consumption or drinking water habits.
- The City began adding chlorine to the system for maintenance purposes on July 9th. This process has been going on longer than expected due to the high seasonal water demand and our need to get adequate chlorine levels throughout the entire water distribution system.
- The City will stop adding chlorine to the water system on or about July 30th. The chlorine will flush out of the system within 5-7 days, or about August 6th.
If you have any questions, please call the City of Wayne at (402) 375-1733.
