The City of Saline, via its Facebook Page, announced that a fault booster pump and increased water usage had caused its drinking water to be "harder" than normal.
Recent Increased Water Hardness
We apologize for the recent increase in the hardness level of your drinking water. The increased hardness is the result of a defective booster pump that was recently purchased for one of the Reverse Osmosis (RO) units, which has been returned to the supplier for repair. Additionally, the warm weather has caused an increase in water usage and the working RO unit has required augmentation with more iron filtered water than usual to keep up with the high demand.
The repaired booster pump is scheduled to be installed tomorrow, July 31st. Both RO units are expected to be on-line by the end of the day tomorrow, providing the regular level of softened water that Saline residents are used to.
Again, we apologize for any inconveniences the increased water hardness may have caused. Please contact WWTP/WTP Supt. Steve Wyzgoski with questions at 734-944-2003 or at [email protected].
