City Says Water is Safe, Addresses Rumors Of Do Not Consume Order
Posted August 21st, 2014 @ 4:55pm

The city of Toledo is addressing rumors that another "do not consume" order is coming. In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the city says there is no water ban in place and one is not being considered.

The full statement:
    The city of Toledo has received calls regarding rumors of a "Do Not Drink" water advisory for today. There is no such advisory, and the water remains safe to drink. We continue to test the water per Ohio EPA protocols. Our most recent test result indicated .36 parts per billion after water was treated at the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant. The World Health Organization recommends not to drink water when microcystin reaches a level of 1.0. We are required to report to the Ohio EPA any result over.5. We will continue to closely monitor the water quality and alert the public if the situation changes. Again, the water is safe to consume.
