How/Does the Ohio Train Derailment River Chemical Spill Effect VRUC's Water?

Valley Rural Utility Company purchases the majority of our water from Greendale Utilities, we have Tri-Township Water Corporation as a back-up supplier.

Greendale and Tri-Township both draw their water from underground aquifers north of the Ohio River. There should be no impact to our water supply from the recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. Greendale Utilities as an over abundance of caution will be conducting extra Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) testing to ensure the safety of our drinking water. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our office at 812-539-3330.
