After testing showed that the Saratoga County Water Authority had brought the levels of disinfection byproducts down below the maximum contaminant levels, the Clifton Park Water Authority once again began the flow of water into its system. The County Authority made a number of modifications to its treatment plant operation, and spent several days flushing the system in an effort to remedy the problem. The County will continue to flow increased amounts of water through the system, reducing the detention time of the water in the 30-mile transmission main, and decreasing the amount of time the water spends in contact with the chlorine added for disinfection. Frequent testing for disinfection byproducts will continue to ensure that the water being supplied to the CPWA customers is safe to drink.
