1/28/17 KANE WATER QUALITY UPDATE

DEP Affirms Sampling and ANALYSIS Plan WATER TANKER STATIONED BEHIND KANE FIRE HALL FLUSHING CONTINUES NO PRESENCE OF INDUSTRIAL CONTAMINANTS

Pennsylvania American Water is committed to providing quality, reliable water service to customers takes this situation very seriously. All of the current activities are focused on verifying that this is a temporary condition and replenishing the system with odor free drinking water.

The company’s ongoing sampling results confirm that the drinking water is well within the compliance regulations set by the EPA and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

“The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has been working with Pennsylvania American Water throughout this situation and has found no signs of contaminants,” said Northwest Pa DEP Operations Section Chief Matt Postlewaite. “The Department is satisfied that Pennsylvania American Water is taking the appropriate sampling and analysis steps to ensure the safety of Kane’s drinking water.”

While our sampling results have confirmed that the condition does not constitute a health threat, a water tanker is located behind the Kane Fire Hall at 50 Poplar Street to ease inconvenience. The tanker is available from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. until further notice. Containers are now available at the tanker.

Crews are continuing to flush parts of the distribution system today and at the plant to help resolve the situation as quickly as possible. If customers experience cloudy or discolored water, run water until it clears before using. This should typically take only a few minutes.

Pennsylvania American Water is conducting additional testing through its parent company (American Water)’s nationally renowned, EPA-accredited, laboratory in Belleville, Illinois, on the source and treated water.

Samples were collected from the company’s two reservoirs supporting the water Treatment and sent to Bellville yesterday. These reservoirs have been deluged with runoff during the last several storms.

Pennsylvania American Water reported on Friday, January 27, 2017, that the results from samples collected from its Kane Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, confirm no detection of any potential contaminants.

The results confirmed that the current water condition is not a result of industrial pollution, pesticides, or the gasoline leak that occurred at the Kwik Fill on Fraley Street this past December. Results also indicate that this event is a result of a still unknown naturally occurring event, which may have been caused by the unseasonal warm weather and recent heavy rains.

Pennsylvania American Water will be issuing additional updates as needed through our website, community leaders and the media. We thank our customers for their patience as we work to identify the cause of this temporary condition and restore the quality of their water.

I have just completed a series of tests on my water, the results are as follows.
1. My water is still wet.
2. The water smells like a piece of glass or stainless steal
3. It will not burn but does put out a fire
4. If I add instant coffee, it turns brown
5. My pets will drink it
6. It cooks pasta
7. It freezes in an ice cube tray

I believe my water is still ok. Hope it stays that way

My water tastes and smells like an old rusty pipe, " not that I have ever tasted a rusty pipe" but. I took a drink and it left a horrible taste tasting dry film in my mouth and throat. After showering or bathing my skin is reddened with an itchy rash and when I wash my face with this water my face becomes reddened and is hot like a "burn" and my eyes feel gritty and burn. "I can not" drink this water they say is not a health hazard but for me it is !! It makes me nauseated just to smell it. We pay for clean safe water and as far as I can tell this is not safe if it burns your skin, eyes and causes a dry horrible taste in your mouth leaving you feel feeling nauseous!!! I have heard these same symptoms have been happening to other people as well

My water tastes and smells like a dirty rusty pipe, Not that I have ever tasted a rusty pipe "BUT". It's a horrible taste and smell and leaves a dry horrible taste and film in my mouth and throat causing me to feel nauseous after taking a sip, I tried to rinse my mouth after brushing my teeth and immediately felt nauseated from the taste and the film it left in my mouth. After showering or bathing my skin is reddened with an itchy rash, and when I wash my face my eyes burn and feel gritty and my face feels like I have a sunburn. We are told the water is safe and not a health issue, but from what I am experiencing it is unsafe and a health issue for me. We pay for clean safe water, these symptoms are all new for me within the past week and I have also heard similar symptoms from other people. I won't even let my dog drink this and will we be ever be compensated!?

When you don't have good water you can appreciate the good water we do have and how little we pay for it.
