In the story, “Residents express concern over chlorine levels in city water” there was a mistake.
The article published on Tuesday, June 29 incorrectly stated Frazee Mayor Ken Miosek said the city is aware of high chlorine levels in areas.
Miosek stated chlorine levels were being tested in all areas of the city, and the city crew is trying to get the chlorine level as low as possible.
Frazee Utilities Superintendent Larry Stephenson informed the newspaper that chlorine levels are not high. In fact, continuous testing has shown under the limits of what is considered unsafe.
An article explaining how chlorine is used in the water supply, and why the change over was required with the new water plant will be in an upcoming issue in the Frazee-Vergas Forum.
In the meantime, Stephenson recommended anyone with concerns about the city water can fill a jug of water and let it sit in the fridge overnight. That should remove any chlorine smell.
