West Goshen water problems continue

A South Valley community will remain without clean drinking water for some time.

Test results Thursday show high levels of nitrates in west Goshen's water. The levels are above the state's requirement for safe drinking water.

West Goshen has been dealing with water problems since August, and most recently, Tulare County Environmental Health found high levels of bacteria in the water.

Environmental health is supposed to be back in the community soon to again test bacteria levels, but officials from the West Goshen Mutual Water Company say even if the tests are clear, the high levels of nitrates would continue to make it unsafe for people to drink and cook with.

Officials are trying to find a permanent fix to the problem.
