August 4, 2014

The City of Huron water division has been closely monitoring the toxin situation taking place in Lake Erie. The Huron water supply has been tested on a weekly basis for the presence of this toxin in both the lake and finished water systems. As of today we have yet to see the presence of this toxin within our system.

Due to the events that have taken place in the Toledo area, we began testing on a daily basis this past Saturday (8/2). Testing still continues on a daily basis at this time with all samples resulting in no detection. We do ask that you continue to monitor all local news and social media sources should anything change, but at this time, the City's water supply is safe for consumption.
