Does anyone know why the State is recommendeding Whitwell voluntary restrict water usage due to "drought conditions" based on Last Digit of Address?

See Jasper Journal 08/14/12; has appeared for past several weeks!

Apparently no one in Whitwell has seen the daily deluge of rains! Is there something we are not being told about the cleanliness? of our water.
Hate our water

Heck, we get a letter every month saying it didn't pass inspection. Yet we still have to pay for the crap! I mean we have to shower, what choice do we have.

Because if they get people to cut down on using the cancer causing water then maybe not as many people in Whitwell will be getting cancer.

Last month we paid our bill and they came and turned our water off. When I called they said they had no record of our payment.... my husband and I hunted for over an hour to find our recipt showing that we paid it. They applied our payment to someone elses account. What if we couldn't find that recipt? We would have had to pay the bill a second time PLUS that $50 reconnect fee. We've also gotten the letter saying that our water failed again. It's scary when you think about your children drinking that contaminated water. SMH!

Good example of City of Whitwell Commissioners not knowing what they are doing and not communicating with the people.
More rain this summer than I can remember in many years! No rationing in the previous years droughts! I JUST DON"T GET IT!

Whitwell has never had anything in city hall other than nepotism and thieves. If people would band together and elect some fresh blood and do their research things may change. Change isn't going to happen until those drawing the paychecks have an education and work for the good of the city rather than the good of their friends and family.

Thankfully I've never had to pay a disconnected water fee, but I had to dig through a ton of records to find my canceled check for city taxes that they said weren't paid, and I would have had to pay them a second time plus interest if I had not kept that check.

My family does not drink city water, the fire department has never put out a fire (even when it was across the street), there isn't a police dispatcher on duty at night and one officer who would be up a creek if he needed backup, so I'm not sure what we are getting for our tax dollars anyway.
horrible water

i also got my water cut off this month after i paid my bill,also my bill is usually in the $20 range this month it was $50....why should i pay for this nasty contaminated water? If you look up "coliform bacteria" it's bacteria from feces!I later found out this year after the many kidney infections ive had that i have pkd(Polcystic Kidney Disease) I showed my doctor the paper from whitwell water showing the failed water test and he's doing test on it.They should go ahead and sell out!!!!

There is not bacteria in the water and it is not contaminated or else the state would shut it down. If any coliform bacteria was in any water that is chlorinated, which all treated water is, then chlorine kills it within a few minutes. Period. If you would check your facts, you'd find that no water system can operate in TN without being monitored an regulated by the state. They have to meet state standards. Or else they cannot operate. Too much false information in this town. Get your facts straight. They sent a letter last fall because of a test that failed at a residence because rain got in the sample. Rain water is contaminated. Treated water is not. A water system cannot send out water that doesn't meet state standards. And if you paid your bill and have your receipt, then your water should not have been cut off. I'd take that issue up at the office. Seems like they are like the Co-op, cable, etc. If you don't pay your bill, they cut you off. It's that way with any service you pay for.

It take years for this water to kill you so by that time you might be dead from something else.... enjoy!
