Water was good all along

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Test results that showed high levels of bacteria in some of Albany's water supply were erroneous.     

Water, Gas, and Light became concerned June 10th when two tests showed high levels of Coliform bacteria. Those areas were immediately retested, and those results were normal.     

WG&L had to notify the Environmental Protection Agency which also tested the well and said there are no problems. 

"This is just procedure through EPD anybody that has a question can give us a call but there is not, nor was there ever, a problem with our water," said WG&L's V.P. for Public Affairs, Lorie Farkas.   "It was a problem with how the test or the samples were taken and by law or EPD rules we have to notify the public."  

Letters will be sent out with customers bills informing them about the invalid test results and explaining the action taken by Water, Gas, and Light.
