Residents in our area are no doubt concerned about what impact, if any, the Norfolk Southern Rail derailment incident on February 3rd might have on water quality. Fortunately for Jackson County Water customers, there is no danger of contamination to the drinking water in our service area. Jackson County Water has its source ground water from a wellfield in Ross County which is completely independent of any potentially contaminated water sources from the Columbiana County area or the potentially affected intakes along the Ohio River. Jackson County Water will continue to monitor water quality as required by the OEPA. Jackson County Water wants to re-assure our customers that their water is safe.
