For a third straight day, the water is still unusable in Scio.
Village Administrator Jake Tubaugh says he is waiting for the results of Thursday’s EPA testing which will help determine the next steps they need to take as-well-as a timetable for when the water will be usable again.
We arrived on scene in Scio just as the EPA came in for another round of testing.
“Well I can feel their frustration,” said Tubaugh. “I live in Scio myself and I know this is a trying time. I would like to ask them to have patience. Let us do the job. We are working through this problem and we are working long hours to get through this problem. We have the experts on site to assist us, and I think it’s a matter of time. We will resolve this problem.”
Tubaugh says those in the village should continue to follow the Ohio Department of health’s advisory for water usage in the village.
Once we know what they find, we will be sure to pass it along to you.
