Brewster Council To Tackle Manganese Issue 6/4/2013
Brewster City Councilmember, Jan May, took off her council hat during their last meeting to address the remainder of the board regarding manganese in the water in the City of Brewster.
Manganese is a mineral found in some drinking water supplies that will not harm you, but they may cause water to run reddish-brown or black. Under guidelines for public water supplies set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mangenese is considered secondary contaminants because it does not have a direct affect on health.
Brewster Mayor, Lee Webster, says that May, asked the City to do something about the manganese.
Mayor Webster adds that there are a few options out there to help abate the manganese issue.
The presence manganese in water is not considered health problem. In fact, small concentrations are essential to human health-  however, it typically gives water an off color.
The Brewster City Council will discuss the issue further at their next meeting, which is set for Wednesday, June 12 at 6PM in Council Chambers at Brewster City Hall.
