Whitley said the water contamination was discovered by officials of Garden Ridge Water Company during a routine test Oct. 5. “Our only problem is we don’t have a problem,” said Don Decker, owner of the company. ‘‘Evidently the chlorinator had a little speck of dirt in it...But there I chlorine in the water, there has always been chlorine in the waier,” Decker said. "The tests showed that there never was anything wrong,” he added. Decker said that the health department has asked them to add extra chlorine to the water. Whitley said the contamination came from the one or more of the company’s three wells which are located within the city of Garden Ridge. He explained that any water system can get coliform in the wells but usually the chlorinators on the system eliminate contamination from before it reaches the consumer. Whitley reported that on Oct. 7 the water company’s chlorinators were in working order. The company serves about 350 homes. “There was never any danger,” said Garden Ridge Mayor Paul Davis. “We were in daily contact with the health department and the state testing never showed any danger.” Davis added that several residents of Garden Ridge who live outside of the subdivision get water from their own wells. These wells were tested, Davis said, and no danger signs were found. In the days after the contamination was found, water company employees flushed the main lines of the system by opening the fire hydrants and releasing water through them, Whitley said The pipes between the main lines and homes were not flushed. “Natural use is gonna flush that water through,” Whitley said. “I guess at times somebody did get a slug of bad water and not know it. But you can drink some water (with coliform) and not get sick,” Whitley said. Normally, fecal coliform itself does not cause disease, Whitley said. Instead, water-transmissible discases can Ik* carried by the coliform. Council to appoint drainage board members After months of discussing the city’s proposed drainage ordinance — and finally agreeing on 6ne — New Braunfels City Council Mondy night will appoint five members to the new Drainage Board of Adjustments and Appeals. Both the ordinance and the establishment of a board were suggested by the city-appointed drainage study committee last year. The terms are for two years, explained City Secretary Veronica Sarkozi, because the approved ordinance contains a clause stating that it will die a natural death on Sept. 1,1987. Before that time, the city should conduct a comprehensive study of the drainage situation in the entire New Braunfels watershed, according to members of the drainage committee and the building community. Also Monday, council will: — Appoint a member to the New Braunfels Utilities board of trustees for a five-year term ending Nov. I, 1990. Trustee Bill Brown’s term is expiring. — Hear a report from the planning department about the interim floodway and flood plain map prepared by the city’s consulting engineers. FEMA has agreed to let the city issue building permits using that map until it prepares a final map later this year. — Approve the third reading of an ordinance rezoning 2.27 acres on Texas 46 South to C-3 (commercial) for a mobile home park, clubhouse, and tennis courts. Mini-warehouses will sit between the park and a shopping center that will front the highway. Council also will approve the third and final reading of an ordinance rezoning .654 acres at 1092 Texas 46 S. to C-3 for owner James Stolte, who said he may develop a shopping center there. — Consider the first reading of an ordinance allowing the city to charge fees for the sanitation crews’ collection and removal of discarded tires from service stations, retail tire outlets and similar establishments. — Approve the constitution and bylaws for the Rivers Advisory Board. — Consider the request of the Noon lion’s Club to use city right-of-way during Wurstfest.
