As residents of Oakland Township, many of us are familiar with the issues related to the iron content in our public and private well water. For the residents on public wells, the Township Board is considering whether a centralized iron removal treatment system should be part of the enhancements for the public wells. The survey results from residents on public wells were mixed as to whether the residents wanted to have the iron removal feature added. A centralized treatment would involve capital expense, as well as an operational expense, both of which would be responsibility of the residents on the public well systems.
There are iron removal options that individual homeowners have for private treatment of their water, regardless of whether it is from a private or public well. These options will be discussed at a workshop that the Township is sponsoring. Here is the information on the workshop:
- Water Iron Removal Workshop
- August 22, 2018
- 7 PM
- Location – Delta Kelly school located at Adams and Gunn Roads.
This meeting will provide information that could be of benefit to residents on either private or public wells.
The following two items give more information on this workshop. It is from Township documentation that is not readily visible on their website:
Hopefully, the Township office will make this information more visible on the official Township Website. Please mark your calendars and attend if you are interested in options available to you for improving your water quality.
