SOLON– One big shock to the system and hopefully all will be well.
The city’s fourth well will be put into production soon, if a large-dose shock chlorination treatment does what it’s expected to do.
Well No. 4 was substantially completed in February 2011, but delays in the construction of an associated project have kept it on the shelf, allowing bacteria to breed.
The bacteria do not present a health issue, according to Solon Public Works Director Scott Kleppe, but have created an odor.
“The water’s fine,” Kleppe said, “it just stinks.”
