Some Paonia residents recently received a letter from the town with a header that read (in all caps and red text): “Important information about your drinking water.”

The letter explains that part of the town’s water supply isn’t meeting some treatment requirements. But according to Mayor Neal Schwieterman, the water’s still safe, and residents don’t need to worry.  

We spoke with Schwieterman about what exactly this letter means, and why it was sent in the first place.
