    Romedo Springs Update

    Due to the continuing presence of coliform, Romedo Springs will be closed until further notice.  

    The PRRD tests the Romedo Springs for the presence of E.coli and total coliforms.  Due to previous tests where the presence of total coliforms were present, Romedo Springs was closed.  The latest test results indicated that the results were negative for both E.coli and total coliforms.  A second consecutive negative test result is required before the facility can be considered to be re-opened.  The test results are expected to be available by June 19, 2015.  If the facility is reopened, the water is only to be used for agricultural purposes and not be used for drinking.
