Moorhead Public Service continues to assist Moorhead Public Schools in Water Quality Investigation

 

Moorhead Public Service (MPS), the electric and water utility for the City of Moorhead, continues to assist Moorhead Public Schools in identifying the source of contamination in the water present in the premise plumbing at Horizon Middle School. As a precautionary measure, MPS conducted general water quality parameter testing of the water distribution system surrounding Horizon Middle School last evening, and the results of the testing are consistent with normal distribution water quality.  Further precautionary testing results are expected by tomorrow (Friday) morning. Moorhead Public Service conducted system-wide copper testing of the water distribution system in the summer of 2016, in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Health. The distribution-wide copper results of this 2016 sampling were well within the Environmental Protection Agency's limit of 1300 PPB for copper. Further water quality information for Moorhead Public Service is available in annual Drinking Water Reports at http://www.mpsutility.com/waterreport.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding distribution water quality, please contact MPS at 218-477-8000, Option 4.
