EPA calls for action to lift boil notice 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has called for treatment of the water supply in Johnstown South which it saw is one of 25 supplies nationwide at risk of contamination with coliform bacteria. The findings form part of the EPA Drinking Water Report 2016 which was published this week and found that six people are affected by a boil water notice on this local supply. The notice was first imposed on June 4, 2015 after coliform bacteria was detected in the water and residents are still awaiting a resolution.
