CURRENT UPDATES

12-12-18 –  Lancaster Rural Water Office has received proper notification from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that we can now STOP the mandatory chlorination process we have been following for the past 5 weeks.
Customers may still notice some chlorine residual even after the pumps are shut off. Please call the office if you have noticed some discoloration of water due to this process as we can flush the mains to help clear this up.
All of us at the Rural Water District would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Please follow our Facebook Account and/or Website at http://www.lrwd1.com for future updates.
Thank you.

Customers may still notice some residual even after the pumps are shut off. Please call the office if you have noticed some discoloration of water due to this process as we can flush the mains to help clear this up.  Thank – you.

 

10-30-18 –                         **LANCASTER RURAL WATER CUSTOMERS**


Lancaster Rural Water is being required by the Nebraska Department of
Health and Human Services to chlorinate the water in our system because of the presence of coliform bacteria.
Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, waterborne pathogens may be present. Coliforms by themselves do not cause disease.
Chlorination of the water will begin on Monday, November 5, 2018 and will continue for at least 30 calendar days to ensure complete disinfection of the system.
When a system that does not routinely chlorinate adds chlorine to disinfect the water, several things can occur:

• Water can become discolored because of high levels of iron and manganese in the system.
• An odor of chlorine may be present.

If the water is cloudy or discolored, it should not be used for drinking
purposes. Also, discolored water may cause staining of laundry. Water may be consumed after the line has been flushed and the water has
cleared. If you have specific  health concerns, please contact your health care provider.
Please  check our  Facebook  page  at Lancaster Rural Water  District,  our  website at     lrwd1 .com, or call us at the office at 402-782-3495 with any questions or concerns.
Thank you.
