BETHLEHEM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Hundreds of people in Bethlehem have a chemical in their water, according to the Bethlehem DPW commissioner.
Commissioner George Kansas said Bethlehem residents who receive water from a supply on Clapper Road have contaminated water.
Kansas said the water contains a chemical called trihalomethanes, or THMS. The chemical is caused when chlorine reacts with any organic compound.
It will cost around $10 million to fix the issue; however, Kansas said it could take a few years to correct.
