  • California city goes to court to oppose state requirement to chlorinate well water (Lodi News Sentinel, November 21)
    Commentary:  The City of Lodi, under a rarely-used CA SDWA provision, has filed in Superior Court for a "writ of mandate" to have the court review a state health department compliance order which requires that continuous chlorination be initiated. Involved in the State's order and the City's response are a number of complexities including GAC treatment units on 6 of the City's 20+ wells, use of multiple-tube fermentation analytical tests, replacement samples, concerns about bio-film and customers' distaste for chlorinated water.
