Statement from the City of Greensburg
Over the last 48 hours, there have been several questions or comments about the taste and odor returning to the city’s water. The Greensburg Water Treatment Plant has been pulling water from Flat Rock directly and bypassing the reservoir, which was identified as the source of the taste and odor issue. While it was impossible to pump from Flat Rock at certain times due to river conditions, it has been our priority source. The water being produced now is of higher quality than in the past, but the taste and odor problem will need to continue to work its way out of the system. To help facilitate this process, the Greensburg Water Treatment staff will flush fire hydrants at the furtherest points throughout the system today, Thursday, April 22. Throughout this entire process the water has been disinfected, filtered and is safe per IDEM and EPA regulations.
All City of Greensburg water testing results and framework is available for public review on the IDEM website at the link below. Residents can also contact the Water Plant directly at 812-663-2641 with questions or concerns. — Mayor Joshua Marsh and Water Superintendent Rick Denney.
