Currently no nitrate issues with the water

Tooley Water District has shut off the lower well (monday 11/28/22) (the well which has nitrate issues) for the winter. We do not intend to turn the lower well on until late spring (when water demand requires the additional water).

We will update this website when we turn the lower well back on.

Turning on Lower Well

We are forced to turn back on the Lower Well. We have not received a new Nitrate reading from this well. The last reading was just below 10. 10 Is the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) recommended.

Please refer to the customer notification you should all have received on June 22, 2022. A copy of that notification is available for download here:

Turning off Lower Well

Tooley Water District has received verbal confirmation that the latest Nitrate test for the lower well was near 10 (the maximum allowed).

As a precautionary measure we are shutting off the lower well.

Please make efforts to keep your usage to a minimum while we have the lower well off.

Edit: 7/22/22 8:00pm As a precaution, If you are concerned about Nitrates you should not drink the water for the next few days as the system runs through all the current water that included the lower well.

2021 CCR Report is now available

Hiland Water has completed our Consumer Confidence Report for 2021. You can access it here:

Items of note:
1) Our December 2021 test for Nitrates in the lower well failed to meet standards.
2) Lead was listed at 10 (below the MCL of 15, but still high)

Tooley Water has been operating on the upper well solely throughout the winter. Additionally, we have been taking regular nitrate samples of the lower well's water so we can understand how the Nitrate levels change over time. We will inform you in the event we have to turn on the lower well again (due to the upper well not being able to keep up with water demand).
