Numerous residents of Luther have expressed concern about the drinking water in town. This is likely based off of a recent presentation from the Department of Environment Quality. The report, which can be viewed by clicking here, did not say that the drinking water was unsafe.
The testing done was a water audit. The sole reason was to determine if the town was losing revenue from the loss of water from leaks or outdated equipment. The report indicated that there is water loss occurring but did not indicate that the water is unsafe for drinking or normal use.
“At this time, the Board of Trustees is not aware of any issues with our water supply and any statement to the contrary is not based off of any scientific research” said Luther Mayor, Lea Ann Jackson.
