Public notice about your drinking water

Article Image Alt Text

The city of Tecumseh has been notified there were two violations of its drinking water microbiological standards during sample testing in the month of November. The violations consist of two total coliform samples testing positive.

This not an emergency situation. No one has to boil their water or take any other corrective measures.

Tecumseh residents who have poor immune systems, especially infants and elderly may be an increased risk and should contact their doctor if they have specific health concerns. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria, which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other potentially-harmful bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.
