Why Does Bordentown’s Water Still Have High Levels Of Lead?
This isn't great news for Bordentown. It's been reported that the town's water has twice the levels of lead in their water that is legally allowed.
Officials are still trying to figure out why for the third consecutive testing period, the levels are that high. Community News reports that there are 16,000 residents in Bordentown. Officials say they are trying to get to the bottom of the issue.
The town has been testing hundreds and hundreds of water samples, and they are also in the process of checking existing pipes all throughout town. They want to make to sure make that no lead pipes are a part of the water distribution system.
Mayor Lynch is hoping that in the coming months they will have a better idea as to why Bordentown's water has some of the highest levels of lead in the entire state. He said that officials' main concern is restoring the town's drinking water quality and the safety of residents.
