NEW BERLIN – After receiving multiple complaints of particles clogging appliances and appearing in drinking water, Village of New Berlin officials reached out to the engineering company that maintains the village's water system and has scheduled a question and answer session for concerned citizens.
While village officials maintain New Berlin's water is safe to drink and that a filter would assist residents with any particle issues, residents of a trailer park in the village have requested officials to work faster to resolve the issue.
In response, the Village of New Berlin Board of Trustees scheduled an informational seminar at 10 a.m. on January 25 in the Village Hall with engineers from Delaware Engineering present to answer questions from concerned citizens.
According to Village of New Berlin Trustee Carol Riley, a possible solution to the problem would be to install a fire hydrant on the trailer park's property and flush the lines.
Riley said the landlord of the trailer park's property would be responsible for the cost of the fire hydrant if he wanted one installed because it would be located on his property.
