Ottumwa Water and Hydro Will Soon Be Adding New Measures to Ensure the Water in Tap is Safe to Drink
Ottumwa Water will be installing two UV purification lights to aid in disinfection.
Unlike chemical approaches, the UV light inactivates dangerous organisms and renders them unable to reproduce and cause infection.
This UV treatment system will be added to the other barriers already in place for water purification.
Construction has not yet begun on the project.
