Water Color Issues Fixed In Ottawa, Investigation Continues Into Source Of Problem

6/29/18 – 5:36 A.M.

Whatever was affecting water in Ottawa appears to be gone now. The Putnam County Sentinel reports some village residents started complaining about odd-tasting, oddly colored water in the middle of June. The issue also affected water customers in Glandorf and Bluffton. Ottawa Water Director Doug Schroeder says they slowed production rates at the water plant and flushed lines in the village to take care of the issue.

Schroeder told village council they couldn’t find a source for the issue in their plant. The Ohio EPA hasn’t been able to find a reason for the off-colored water either. They are continuing to look into the problem.
