Results Of New Water Source Tests Are In

By Gordon Hopkins

The City of Fairbury is in receipt of the test results for water from a proposed alternative water source and the initial results look promising, at least as far as nitrates are concerned.The purpose of the Water Sourcing Project is to locate a new, lower-nitrate water source for both Fairbury and the Little Blue NRD (Natural Resources District). The city has identified a prospective location for the new wells approximately four miles south of Daykin. A series of test wells were drilled and the water obtained from those wells tested. Five of those wells have tested below the city’s goal of three ppm (parts per million).
