Testing Results for Lincoln County PSD and City of St. Albans Water System

1/23/2015

The West Virginia Department of the Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public Health’s Office of Laboratory Services has initial test results back on the drinking water or what is commonly called “the treated water” from the Lincoln PSD and City of St. Albans Water System. 
 
The tests indicated that the water values were in line with what is routinely seen and show no abnormalities or concerns at this time.  The foam substance is highly insoluble and is thought to remain on the surface of the water and would be caught in the filtration system at the water plant.
 
“This is reassuring to us that the preliminary test results mean water at both Lincoln PSD and City of St. Albans water system remains safe,” said Dr. Rahul Gupta, Commissioner of the Bureau for Public Health and State Health Officer.  “We have notified both water systems to resume treatment of water as normal and residents should continue to use their water.”
