Mansfield Middle School Water to be Tested Next Week

Officials are looking to rid the system of coliform found in the water late last week.

Officials are still working to resolve the latest water problem at the Mansfield Middle School.

A broken water conduit to one of the school's three wells is to blame for traces of contamination found in the school's water, Superintendent of Schools, Fred Baruzzi said earlier this week.

The system is currently being treated with chlorine, and was expected to be tested again on Wednesday, but Allen Corson, Mansfield's deputy director of facilities management said Thursday that the system is still being flushed of chlorine and will be tested some time early next week.

In the meantime, bottled water will continue to be provided for students, staff and faculty until the situation is resolved.
