Maryville Water

Another failure for water quality in Maryville.

The city says tests done between April and June this year show the drinking supply- which is also used in Nodaway County's public water supply district number one- failed to meet the removal requirements for total organic carbon.

That's a contaminant that requires a removal ratio of one or more… Maryville's is point -9-1.

The city says the total organic carbon has absolutely no health effects, but can create some harmful by-products if mixed with other particles in the water.

Maryville officials say they're requesting changes to the treatment process to the agency they've hired to take care of the water system. They say additional lab equipment is also being bought to track the removal of the carbon compounds more regularly.
