Philadelphia, PA – On November 6th, 2017 American Water reported a drinking water warning to parts of Allegheny and Washington counties. They reported that the water is high in Turbidity and there is a high chance of disease-causing organisms in the water.
We at Tern Water, have decided to launch a Know Your Water test that would include testing for Turbidity to any users effected by this problem. Through using promo code: TurbidWater on checkout, we will be testing for pH, TDS, Fluoride, Chlorine, Turbidity and Hardness.
Know Your Water, is a convenient way for users to test for contamination in their water. We will be sending you a water capsule to fill with your drinking water source, and then ship back to our labs. We will be running a water test on it, and then sending you back a your water report in an email.
Reports have indicated that 100,000 citizens have been effected this throughout different parts of Pennsylvania. According to USGS, Turbidity could provide food and shelter to pathogens, which would lead to waterborne disease outbreaks as gastroenteritis. Phosphorus can sometimes be the cause of high Turbidity. Phosphorus sources may include wastewater treatment facilities, nutrient runoff from crop land and other sources. Organic matter from sewage discharges, especially during treatment plant bypasses, can also contribute to turbidity. The report from American Water doesn’t mention the cause for this high Turbidity.
We hope everyone is this area will not be harmed with this problem, or future problems of this sort. Please feel free to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
