Humboldt Municipal Waterworks Failed to Report a Required Notification
Our water system, Humboldt Municipal Waterworks, recently failed to comply with a reporting requirement. Even though this was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.
"We are required to report to the DNR when turbidity monitoring equipment is taken out of and returned to service within 24-hours. We are also required to return the equipment to service within 14 days. During the months of April and May 2020, we did not report the equipment being taken out or returned to service, nor did we return the equipment to service within 14 days."
What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time. You may continue to drink the water. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.
What is being done?
We will report, within 24-hours, when a turbidity monitoring equipment is taken off line and returned to service. We will also ensure that the equipment is returned to service within 14 days. When equipment is taken offline grab samples are gathered every 4 hours, in accordance with Iowa DNR requirements.
