BELFOREST
WATER SYSTEM LIFTED A BOIL WATER
NOTICE FOR 26-HUNDRED
CUSTOMERS. THE WARNING WAS PUT
IN PLACE AFTER A
SEWER LINE WAS MISTAKENLY
CONNECTED TO A FRESH WATER LINE
BY
BALDWIN COUNTY SEWER SERVICE ON
WEDNESDAY.
TWO SCHOOLS IN DAPHNE WERE
CLOSED FOR THE LAST TWO DAYS
BECAUSE OF THIS. FOX TEN NEWS
REPORTER HAL
SCHEURICH HAS LEARNED THOSE DAYS
WILL HAVE TO BE MADE UP:
< Elementary and
Daphne Middle School have been
quiet for the last two days.
Both are supplied water by the
Belforest Water System.
When the schools received notice
of a possible contamination late
Wednesday, the
decision to close the schools
was made. "Roughly, twelve
hundred students have been
affected by this disruption of
the school day. It's never a
good thing.
It's always an inconvenience and
no one ever wants to lose
continuity especially right
after a holiday break." A
spokesperson with Belforest
Water says the contamination
happened
when Baldwin County Sewer
Servicea private
contractorconnected a sewer
line to a water line
at a home on their system. They
said that the whole water system
was not
affected, but all customers were
put on notice as a precaution.
"Because this disruption of
classes is not the result of a
natural disaster, school
officials tell me students will
have to make up the days that
they're missing." "It's a
certainty that these days will
indeed have to be made up, which
is never a good thing. It's an
inconvenience for both teachers
and students." It's also been
troublesome for some parents.
Nehal Bodalia has stayed home
with his two kids,
but is making the best of it by
putting up Christmas decorations
with them. "We're lucky that
we're self employed, so it
works, but at the end of the day
they need to be in schoolthe
kids." With a little luck and
some good test results from
ADEM, officials are hopeful
school will be back to normal on
Monday and residents will be in
the all clear.
