Answers, Information from State Officials and Trenton Water Works on Chlorine
Levels, Legionnaire’s Cases
Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede is
demanding answers and more information from Governor Murphy, State officials
and Trenton Water Works concerning reported low chlorine levels from Trenton
Water Works and possible connections to cases of Legionnaire’s Disease.
Correspondence from a State
official reveals that at least one of Trenton Water Works water towers has historically
had low chlorine levels, which is further documented by Trenton Water Works apparent
efforts to remediate the issue.
Mayor Yaede recently asked the New
Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to review a possible link between
the low chlorine levels and recent cases of Legionnaire’s Disease.
“From their own admission, it
appears that State officials had evidence of low chlorine rates in Trenton
Water Works’ water. I am demanding additional
information and answers so that we can ensure that Hamiltonians are not put at
additional risk due to the negligence of State officials or Trenton Water Works,”
says Mayor Kelly Yaede.
