A New School Year begins with a New Drinking Water Source

With the start of the new school year under way, Culligan of Lima, NY is pleased to announce their recent partnership with the Livonia Central School District in providing safe and clean drinking water for its students and faculty members.

School districts throughout the state of New York have been voluntarily testing their drinking water sources to ensure they are keeping their water source clean and safe for all of their facility members. As of recently Livonia Central School District conducted their own voluntary water tests within its facilities and decided that although 87% of the locations were within the guidelines for consumption, they put together a plan to go above and beyond the EPA guidelines*. As of the start of the new school year, Culligan will be delivering purified drinking water to all facilities within the Livonia Central School District while they update their facilities.

The source of our water comes from the municipal supply in Akron, NY, which originates from the reservoir located in the Town of Bennington. This reservoir is dedicated for the sole use of public water supply and is tested regularly for compliance with EPA standards. We prepare and protect our water by using a multi-barrier approach:

  • Fine filtration to remove sediment and suspended particles
  • Carbon filtration to remove unwanted chemical and organics
  • Softening and Reverse Osmosis to remove unwanted dissolved solids
  • Deionization
  • Ultra Violet Disinfection & Ozonation to disinfect without leaving odors or unpleasant aftertaste
  • Final Filtration
  • Mineral Injection by using only food grade minerals, to give your water exactly the right, clean refreshing taste

Just like the Livonia Central School District, Culligan’s number one concern is the health and safety of the one’s closest to us. Together we will work to ensure we bring the consistent, high quality drinking water to all of the students, faculty members and friends of the Livonia Central School District.
