Toledo water problems prompt action in Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Bowling Green'swater, pulled from the Maumee River, was not compromised during Toledo's recentwater crisis.

But that's notstopping them from taking notice of what happened in Toledo, and making somechanges of their own.

​"We felt thatit was in the best interest of the community to give Bowling Green customersreassurance that our water was safe, and that we were going to start doingdaily tests," said Utility Director Brian O'Connell.

Bowling Green'streatment process is also slightly different than Toledo's, which may play arole in keeping contamination from happening.

"It's like acarbon filter, basically, we have 12 vessels here, all that water goes throughthe GAC, and that helps to remove any organics, any taste and odor issues, andany issues that may come from algae that we might experience," O'Connellsaid.

The increasedtesting will continue at least through the month of August, and probably intoSeptember as well, until algae season is over.
