Colored Water Info:

As many of you are aware there is a yellow hue to our water that is coming from our treatment plant East of Velva. First and foremost I assure you that your water is safe. Our water comes from the volitare aquifer and it is high in iron maganiese. We enlarged our Detention basin in order to waste less water and to be able to run our plant at full capacity. When start up these projects there are always issues to be worked out. We have a team of experts from all over the midwest trying to help us perfect this process. As you can see we are not there yet. I ask that you please be patient with us and we will get this issue fixed. Thank you for your understanding. The discoloration is a carryover of manganese in the treatment process. That is what we are working on.
