City Seeking Additional Testing After Low Levels of Cyanotoxin Detected in Treated Water Sample - 06/01/18

SHERWOOD, OR — The City of Sherwood learned yesterday afternoon, May 31, from the City of Wilsonville that a treated water sample collected from their water system recently tested for contaminants revealed trace levels of microcystin, a cyanotoxin produced by cyanobacteria, sometimes referred to as blue-green algae.  
With the City of Sherwood obtaining its drinking water from the City of Wilsonville-Willamette River Water Treatment Plant, Sherwood is being very cautious by providing this information to our customers much like Wilsonville is to their customers. 
We understand that the City of Wilsonville has taken a sample for analysis and is expecting results Monday, June 4th.  Based on the results of the sample a public advisory maybe issued per state and federal guidelines. 
If the public advisory were to be issued, the public advisory would likely apply to anyone who is under the age of six, who has a compromised immune system, who is receiving dialysis treatment, who has a pre-existing liver condition, who is pregnant or nursing, or who has other sensitivity concerns.   
Boiling water is not an effective method of removing cyanotoxins. Cyanotoxins are not absorbed through the skin, so daily tasks like washing hands, bathing, cleaning dishes, and laundry pose no health risk.  
For more information about water quality, people can visit the Oregon Health Authority’s website or call 2-1-1.
