Vandalia issues statement regarding Dayton water issues

Vandalia monitoring impact from Dayton water contamination

An ongoing issue with the City of Dayton’s water supply may impact some Vandalia households.

Dayton has announced that it is closely monitoring the low-level contamination of one source of its water supply. The trace amounts of contaminants are well below the Federal drinking water standards and pose no immediate safety threat to water customers. The impacted aquafer has been taken offline while the contamination is addressed, and no water customers have received water from the contaminated site.

The specific contaminants are man-made chemicals known as PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). These chemicals have been used in industrial and consumer products since the 1950s and are often found in the environment because of their widespread use in products such as coatings for textiles, paper products and cookware. They are also used in firefighting foams.

The EPA has established a limit for this chemical as it relates to health impacts at 70 parts per trillion (ppt). The contamination in this incident is less than 10 ppt, which is significantly below the health risk level.

Dayton City officials are actively working with the entity responsible for addressing the contamination.

Most of Vandalia is served by the Northern Area Water Authority (NAWA), a joint water distribution venture between the cities of Vandalia and Tipp City.

“NAWA’s water source comes from wells located in Tipp City,” said Jon Crusey, Vandalia city manager. “NAWA water is not a part of this contamination and most of our customers are not impacted at all by Dayton’s announcement.”

Crusey said a small number of Vandalia households and businesses located south of I-70 receive water from Montgomery County, which purchases its water supply from Dayton.

“If your water bill comes from Montgomery County, your water is provided by the City of Dayton,” Crusey said. “But it’s important to remember that your water is perfectly safe to drink.”

Crusey said Vandalia will continue to monitor the situation and relay information to impacted Vandalians as appropriate.
