Security water district addresses contamination concerns

Posted: Updated:
SECURITY -

The Security Water and Sanitation District met with the community tonight to address concerns over chemicals that have been detected in the local water supply.

A recent study from the EPA revealed that water in Security, Widefield, and Fountain has traces of PFA, a dangerous chemical.

Although the cities have some of the highest levels, city officials said the levels are still too low to be considered dangerous.

The EPA says the chemical can be removed from water at treatment plants or with activated carbon filters. 

All three water districts stress that customers should not be worried about the effect this has on water quality in the area, and said their water is safe to drink.

The EPA is planning to meet with water officials in Security next week to discuss solutions.
