Chlorine levels lowered


Chlorine levels in drinking water from the Campus Hills Water Works company have returned to normal, but the results of bacteria level tests will not be available until today, state officials said.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Ellen M. Heller yesterday continued an injunction issued Friday at the request of the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) to have the Maryland Environmental Service (MES) run the privately owned Harford County water company.

The action came after samples taken by the MDE showed levels of chlorine judged to be a health hazard. After MES flushed the system Saturday, the chlorine levels returned to normal, said Assistant Attorney General Pamela D. Marks.
