Bottled Water Recommendation for Wellman Residents Lifted
Posted: 07/05/2013
WELLMAN – An advisory to city of Wellman residents in Washington County to drink bottled water has been lifted.

Residents of Wellman had been issued the advisory until repairs could be made on a broken line and water can be tested for safety. Although the repairs are still under way, the city water source has been shifted to other wells that do not have nitrite issues. Water sampling has confirmed that water being drawn from the other wells is safe.

A water line in the system burst Thursday bypassing the reverse osmosis system used to reduce nitrite in the water supply.
