GENESEE RV PARK RESERVATIONS: Nyla 208-816-6136
June 30, 2021 NITRATE TEST for WELL #3 – 9.60 mg/L (10.4 mg/L max allowed)
BUDGET WORKSHOP, Tuesday, July 27th, 6pm at the Fire Station
DAILY GOAL FOR CITY WATER USAGE: 275,000 GALLONS
The City has been posting pump hours to inform water customers if conservation efforts have been meeting the daily goal. The pumping situation has changed now that Well # 3 and Well #5 are both in operation and each well pumps at different rates. In an effort to simplify the information gallons pumped per day will now be posted instead of pump hours.
Drinking Water Filling Station Now Available, 24 hrs/day, at the Fire Station! Please bring your own container. (Drinking water from Well #5)
DRINKING WATER WARNING
City of Genesee water has high levels of nitrate
DO NOT GIVE THE WATER TO INFANTS UNDER 6 MONTHS OLD OR USE IT TO MAKE INFANT FORMULA
To maintain water to residents, the City has turned Well #3 back on. Well #3 has Nitrate levels that exceed the EPA limit. Nitrate in drinking water is a serious health concern for infants less than six months old.
Nitrate in drinking water can come from natural, industrial, or agricultural sources (including septic systems and run-off). Levels of nitrate in drinking water can vary throughout the year.
What should I do? What does this mean?
DO NOT GIVE THE WATER TO INFANTS. *Infants below the age of six months who drink Water containing nitrate in excess of the MCL could become seriously ill and, if untreated, may die. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome. *Blue baby syndrome is indicated by blueness of the skin. Symptoms in infants can develop rapidly, with health deteriorating over a period of days. If symptoms occur, seek medical attention immediately.
Water, juice, and formula for children under six months of age should not be prepared with tap water. Bottled water or other water low in nitrates should be used for infants until further notice.
DO NOT BOIL THE WATER. Boiling, freezing, filtering, or letting water stand does not reduce the nitrate level. Excessive boiling can make the nitrates more concentrated, because nitrates remain behind when the water evaporates.
Adults and children older than six months can drink the tap water (nitrate is a concern for infants because they can’t process nitrates in the same way adults can). However, if you are pregnant or have specific health concerns, you may wish to consult your doctor.
We are still encouraging water conservation. PLEASE LIMIT outside watering as much as possible.
