     Steps Taken to Remedy: Residents warned of non-potability of the drinking water due to coliform bacteria. Water system operators advised to apply for a contruction permit to install disinfection equipment and what equipment would be needed.
     Corrective Actions Remaining: Present water system is non-conforming to the Drinking Water Protection Act. Installation and operation of disinfection equipment is required.
