The City of Toledo has introduced a Water Quality Dashboard to keep area water users up to date on drinking water quality. The dashboard has five levels of water quality, ranging from clear, to caution, to do not drink.
The city tests raw and treated water regularly for the presence of toxins, including microcystin created by algae blooms. An increase in mircocystin levels last summer led to a drinking water ban for Toledo water customers. Some areas of Fulton County use Toledo water, including the Swancreek and Northeast Water Districts.
The dashboard is available at http://toledo.oh.gov/services/public-utilities/water-treatment/water-quality/.
Interested residents can also sign up for email and text message alerts on the site.
