Coleman water system cleaned after accident
By JOHN SENTER and ROBERT JOHNSON Staff writers
A cleaning solvent accidentally pumped into the water system has caused some problems for the Coleman Company this week, but those problems did not spread to city water supplies.
The solvent, in what Coleman plant manager Ron Eyres described as a “freak accident,” contaminated the water supply of the plant, located on FM 306 near Hunter Road. The plant was closed down early Friday afternoon, and the employees were sent home, Eyres said.
The plant’s water lines were flushed, and full production resumed Monday morning, he said. Wednesday a trace of the chemical was discovered again, and Eyres said the water was again shut off as a precautionary measure. A new
fountain was installed for the employees, and plumbing to the existing fountains will be replaced, he said.
Thanks to a backflow prevention device, none of the contaminated water got into the city water supply, Eyres and Utilities Manager Bob Sohnsaid.
Utilities employees took samples Friday from four places: the incoming water lines to the plant, the Coleman water system, the hydrant outside the plant and Gruene-area homes. The result: as expected, none of the chemical left Coleman, Sohn said.
“I knew there was no possibility of contamination to the city’s water system, but I wanted to take all precautions,” Eyres said. So he immediately notified Sohn Friday.
Eyres described the accident as “costly,” but added Thursday, “The plant’s back in operation. Everything is under control.”

negotiations for an additional 6,000 acre feet are presently underway.

Jail panel meets tonight

In addition to Knox, the membership of this citizens’ committee consists of S.D. David Jr., Howard Benson, Jesse Gomez, James H. Scheele, Harry Heimer, Sharon Phair, Jon Zidek, John Karbach. Milton Erben and Clyde Cox.
Each of the four county commissioners nominated two members to this committee, while County Judge Fred Clark named two members and Knox as chairman.
