The Galena Water Treatment Plant #1 (in new town Galena) has exceeded drinking water standards for trihalomethanes during the third quarter of 2017. This does not mean that water needs to be boiled to make it safe to drink.  If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk for health problems and should seek advice from your health care professional. For more information, contact the Water Treatment Plant at 656-2132 or P.O Box 149, Galena, AK 99741. (10/16)
