City spends $ 14,500 to buy water testing stations
By Linda Green

A failed water quality test by the Environmental Protection Division fueled the need for water testing stations in Thomson.
The Thomson City Council, in its meeting Thursday, authorized the city to purchase the stations at a cost of $14,550. The city already purchased 15 required stations in October.
In July, the city sent notices to the water-sewer customers notifying them that coliform bacteria was present in the drinking water and also said that the presence of the bacteria was not an emergency or health hazard.
The city routinely monitors drinking water for contaminants and the water system violated a drinking water standard with the July testing.
