KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Missouri River is expected to crest Saturday night, but the concern for many people in Kansas City, Missouri, is the quality of drinking water more than flooding.
“I was concerned,” Dawn Coates said. “But I personally don’t have to worry, because I don’t drink tap water.”
Coates may be in the minority among KC Water’s 177,000 customers, who got an alarming alert overnight from Friday into Saturday.
After a week of flood water making its way through town, KC Water samples failed some tests for state drinking-water standards. However, the situation may not be as dire as it sounds.
“We have found no evidence of any bacteria or anything harmful,” KC Water Communications and Outreach Manager Brooke Givens said.
She insisted that customers should not be concerned about the safety of the water.
“This time, it was so much flood waters it just made the problem larger,” Givens said. “We are seeing treatment conditions we haven’t seen in a decade.”
Still, the failed tests require KC Water to notify customers , according to release from the utility: “Although the state does not consider this an emergency this mandatory notification is needed to advise customers who have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, or are elderly. These customers may be at increased risk and should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.”
The city’s water department responded throughout the week to complaints and concerns from people who said their tap water looks and tastes different. Officials said it’s a challenge of treating flood water, but stressed that it’s still safe to drink.”
R-Mech Heating Cooling and Plumbing has been challenged to come up with a solution to fix the taste and clarity of Kansas City’s Tap Water. The answer was not that difficult as we have been in the water treatment industry for years. Puronic’s Water Systems has developed water treatment since 1970 where they use Silver Ions to as an Anti-Microbial. In fact Puronics water conditioners come with a granular activated carbon that is impregnated by Silver. This will get rid any bacteria growth, odors, tastes front eh water. The next stage is a Monospheric Resin this reduces iron, turbidity, and removes hardness. Now to address the color or clarity.
