[ARCHIVED] No poop in our soup

The federal EPA recently revised its guidelines for public water systems to test for the presence of pathogenic organisms of fecal origin, specifically E.coli. The new test protocol, which Cranberry is planning to adopt, was presented by Brush Creek wastewater treatment plant manager Mike Sedon to Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors at its May 26 meeting. In essence, the new procedure involves monitoring directly for E.coli rather than for proxy coliform bacteria, expanding the number and distribution of test sites, weighting the test site pattern for population and water use, and increasing attention to the water system’s most distant reach. During his 27 years with the Township, no positive findings for coliform bacteria in Cranberry’s water have ever been found, Sedon reported. A plan to meet the new requirements, which will add an estimated $45,000 a year to system cost, will be presented for Board consideration at its June 2 meeting.
