Water in Bethlehem Still Being Tested for Contamination Reports H2o Labs

Once again, the news is full of stories about contaminated water affecting local communities across the nation.

“While this story is not as bad as it could have been, it does still point out the need for a different and better backup if you are faced with contaminated water in your town. For instance, water distillers that provide clean, clear, fresh and safe water when you need it; anytime. However, many don’t seem to be aware that there are other alternatives to drinking their tap water, or doing without when their water system may be breached,” said Larry Wardell, who writes for H2olabs.com, a provider of water distiller systems that provide truly pure distilled water.

Bethlehem’s water may have been OK, but the town officials were not taking any chances. They issued a boil water advisory for their 2,200 residents. And then, testing began to determine coliform levels. The cause of this emergency was a massive water main break; a high-volume main feed that carried 5 million gallons. The 34-inch pipe cracked wide open, 24 feet underground, which made it really hard to locate. In fact it took town crews two days to find it.

During this period of time, if town residents had access to water distillers (for those who had water still available) or water distillation systems, there would have been no concerns about the safety of the water. “Water distillers have an excellent reputation for providing only the cleanest, freshest and safest water you could ask for; truly pure distilled water,” Wardell said.

Unfortunately, five schools lost their water completely and had to close, but reopened shortly thereafter with bottled water on hand. While the town is fairly certain there were no other contaminants in the water supply, as a result of this break, the advisory was issued for the sake of safety. “Leaks of that size have the potential to suck contaminated ground into the water system,” Wardell said.

To avoid the possibility of ever having to go through another boil water advisory, town residents would be well advised to do some research into the safest way to provide fresh water on demand. Chances are, they will find out that water distillers are the perfect solution.
