Water passed tests
YOUNGSTOWN -- No violations of contaminant levels were found last year in the water the city buys and distributes, says a 2000 federal consumer confidence report.
The federally required report is based on 65,000 laboratory tests performed on water the city buys from Mahoning Valley Sanitary District. The city distributes about 21 million gallons of water daily through 750 miles of pipe to the city, Austintown, Boardman, Canfield Township, North Jackson and Liberty. The city sells bulk water to Mineral Ridge, Girard and the city of Canfield.
