ANNOUNCEMENT FROM TOWN OF MARION

DRINKING WATER PROBLEM CORRECTED
The Town of Marion was notified on October 6, 2021, that total coliform and E. coli was present in the drinking water, and immediately issued a boil water order per Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) requirements. We are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and that it is no longer necessary to boil water prior to consumption. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
This includes Rochester Residents who receive water from the Town of Marion.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
Residents/Customers are advised to flush their lines again to remove any contaminated water from their pipes and or fixtures (refrigerator water lines, water tanks, etc.) and any devices with filters should have the filters replaced.
Please refer to the following webpage for detailed information on What to do after the Boil Order is lifted:
https://www.mass.gov/.../drinking-water-boil-orders-and......
The Town of Marion collected routine samples on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. We were notified by the lab on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, that distribution samples were total coliform and E. coli positive. We notified MassDEP the same day we were notified by the lab of the sample results. This prompted the Town to immediately issue the Boil Water Order. The Town proceeded with required sampling and corrective actions per MassDEP instruction. The most recent sampling was completed on Monday, October 18th, 2021. The results of these samples were absent for total coliform and E. coli. MassDEP has approved that the Boil Water Order be lifted.
As always, you may contact the Marion Department of Public Works at (508) 748-3540 with any comments or questions.
This notice is being sent to you by the Town of Marion Water Division.

Boil Water Order Still in Effect for Marion
Public Water Distribution Saturday Afternoon
Town Administrator James McGrail reports that the ongoing boil water order will continue to remain in effect until further notice for all those who utilize Marion municipal water.
Per Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requirements, the earliest that the boil water order may be lifted is on Tuesday, Oct. 19.
In accordance with DEP requirements, water sampling and testing took place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Samples taken on Tuesday and Wednesday were clean with no detection of total coliform or E. coli. However, two of the samples taken on Thursday, Oct. 14, were positive for total coliform and absent of E. coli.
The town will continue to do further testing in the coming days and test results will be announced as information becomes available. We will continue to be in direct contact with DEP and follow their guidance and requirements.
Please note that other towns in the region may have their boil water orders lifted as soon as today, but Marion's is still in effect until further notice.
"Despite everyone working very hard to resolve this issue, unfortunately we are unable to lift the boil water order at this time," Town Administrator McGrail said. "Testing will continue in the coming days and we will provide further updates as soon as we receive new information. I appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we work through this issue. The safety and well-being of our residents and community members is one of our top priorities and this includes having safe and clean drinking water."
Marion Department of Public Works (DPW) personnel will continue to work pulling chlorinated water through the system by flushing hydrants. However, due to the low water usage in town currently, this process is taking longer than anticipated. Residents may notice discoloration in their tap water due to hydrant flushing. This is a normal effect of hydrant flushing and residents should not be concerned by the discoloration. Residents who notice discoloration can run their cold water tap for a few minutes until it becomes clear and then proceed with the boil water order guidelines for water use.
Public Water Distribution Saturday Afternoon
On Saturday, the Town of Marion will be hosting a public water distribution event open to all Marion and Rochester residents who are served by Marion municipal water.
The event will take place between 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Marion Fire Station 2, located at 871 Point Road.
Cases of bottled water will be given out to residents while supplies last.
Seniors and home-bound residents can still call the town's hotline at 508-748-3072 and leave a message with their information to be contacted about a delivery.
Reminders for Residents
The boil water order remains in effect for all those who utilize Marion municipal water, and will remain in effect until testing has shown that the water is safe to use.
Residents are reminded of the following instructions regarding the boil water order:
All tap water that will be used for cooking, drinking, brushing teeth, washing dishes or food preparation should be boiled for at least one minute prior to use, or bottled water should be used as an alternative.
Any ice, beverages, formula or uncooked foods that were prepared with water from the public water system on or after Oct. 5 should be discarded.
Pets should be given bottled water or boiled water that has cooled. Water from any appliance connected to your water line, such as ice and water from a refrigerator, should not be used for pets while under a boil water order.
The chlorination process the town DPW is conducting may affect fish or other aquatic pets, and it is recommended that appropriately boiled and cooled water or bottled water is used instead.
https://www.marionma.gov/.../update-4-boil-water-order...
Once the boil water order can be lifted, residents will be provided with additional instructions.
Additional information regarding drinking water boil orders and other public health orders can be found on the DEP's website.

Residents should be aware of possible scams that have recently caused concern in the Tri-Town area. In addition to the Social Security, Grandchild and Covid-19 scams, the recent boil water order due to the presence of E.coli in town water has led to some individuals/companies possibly attempting to prey on the fear of contaminated water. Please use sound judgment and do your research, including checking complaints with the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org), before deciding if it is necessary to part with your money. A simple online search can save you thousands of dollars. Please call the Police Department if you have questions.

County Road - Road Construction / Scarified Pavement....FYI the road crew cleared out at 4:30PM forgetting to provide the required "transitions" using asphault patch at areas cut, they also provided no sinage about the scarified pavement hence traffic are hitting these cut off's at regular speed. Not safe for motorcycles....Vehicles equipped with low profile tires are sure be damaging wheels while damaging others.

Wanted to take a minute to thank the Marion Police and Firefighters for their help in freeing my daughter from getting stuck in a baby playground swing
Besides owing the towns' Park & Rec dept. a new childs swing, we owe a huge depth of gratitude to the Marion Police, Fire Dept. and EMT's, for coming out to rescue my daughter, Ariella, who was stuck... in a childs swing...Yep, not proud of this..But after so much trying, and crying, became freaked out enough to call MPD. Not sure how often calls like that come in, but MPD was over right away, and I knew we were in good hands...In the end, after dogged determination of the towns finest, with different tools, she was freed. & She was given the swing seat to take home as a soveneir....I later found out that though the Silvershell playground is moslty all new now, the 2 childs swings were kept on becuase they were heavy duty, metal, wrapped in leather over metal banding. Im sad to say it was cut. & I will try to fix it and return it for posteritys sake, but it brought about quite the interesting scenario with all the fire and rescue personell that were on hand to extract her. Plus the several 13 yr old gilrs just so happen to be having a bday party on the beach came over all consoled my daughter Ariella, sang songs and handed out cupcakes to everyone...Thanks MPD, FD & EMT's.
