Plattsmouth Water Alert: No Bleaching

CREATED Mar. 28, 2013

Plattsmouth, NE - There's been a mechanical failure at the water processing plant in Plattsmouth.  The city has temporarily bypassed the water softening process.

City leaders stress the water is safe for drinking, but customers should expect increasing water hardness for at least a week.  During this time, the city says customers should not use bleach in the laundry.  Bleach oxidizes with iron and can discolor laundry.

The city says parts are on order but must be altered to meet plant specifications.
