Top 10 Causes – Outbreaks in Public Water Systems

Top 10 Causes – Outbreaks in Public Water Systems*

Lets start with the first one. Is Giardia living in your water system?
According to the CDC Giardia is the most common contaminant of potable water systems.  Giardia is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis. Giardia is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it tolerant to chlorine disinfection.

Missouri has no requirement to clean water towers

Chris Hayes from Fox2 News in St Louis, Missouri recently interviewed me for a story he did about a water tank in Leadwood, Missouri. The tank had been inspected once about 17 years ago and as far as anyone knew, had never been cleaned. Chris was contacted by some residents of the community who had brown water coming out of their taps.

I was happy to contribute both video and comments to this story. Water storage tanks should be inspected yearly for public safety, even if the state they are in has no regulations at all. Mr. Hayes did a great job. He found the larger systems around St. Louis had all been recently inspected. Many smaller systems seem to fall back on regulations to decide what is really important.

Although the state of Missouri has no written regulation or rules on when tanks should be inspected they do say this about the inspection and cleaning of water storage tanks: “...clearly necessary to protect public health.”

You would not drink out of a dirty glass, why do these people have to drink water from a dirty tank?  See the video on our Company Facebook Page:
