The Maury River and You!

By Harry Razook

Maury River Drinking Quality
Information


Your drinking water is commonly
obtained from the surface of the
Maury River.


Purified by the water treatment plant
located off U.S. Route 60 West.


Process is composed of chemical
addition, rapid mixing, flocculation,
sedimentation, filtration, chlorination,
corrosion control, and fluoridation.

Source Water Assessments


According to the Maury Service Authority,
t
he
Maury River may be susceptible to
contamination.


Hydrologic, hydraulic, and atmospheric conditions
promote contamination from land use activities.


2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality
Reports

There was not a single violation for the 2011 year, which means we were in full
compliance!


Maury River Alliance


Used to be a group made up
of Washington and Lee and
VMI school body members.


Monitored the Maury River
to help find hotspots.


Used benthic macro
-
invertebrates for research
because they are good
indicators of watershed health.
