BULLHEAD CITY – Preliminary inspection results of an Arizona Department of Environmental Quality water test in Bullhead City are in.
A state inspector reported major deficiencies in the way water was hauled to a system that provides drinking water to Desert Foothills residents.
The report obtained by the Mohave Daily News said “water was being hauled to this system in construction water trucks marked as non-potable.”
State law requires a water transport container shall be for hauling drinking water only and be clearly marked.
ADEQ spokesman Mark Shaffer said Arizona American Water faces possible sanctions for using the trucks.
AAW spokeswoman Joni McGlothlin said the water company did ensure that only potable water meeting all drinking water standards was put into the Desert Foothills system.
