The Pleasant Township trustees discussed water concerns at the Community Gardens Mobile Home Park at their May 23 meeting.

According to chairwoman Nancy Hunter, she is still receiving a lot of complaints about the living conditions in the community. Hunter said those complaints range from reports of brown water, to water with a strange odor, to no water at all.

Residents have made numerous complaints to the management throughout the years regarding all sorts of water-related issues. According to the reports received by Hunter, these issues are still continuing despite previous attempts to find a resolution.

Hunter said that she forwarded the complaints to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which has already reached out to the mobile home park with a bid to replace its water treatment system.

The EPA told Hunter that Community Gardens had until May 29 to accept the bid to replace the treatment system.

“At least the EPA is on it,” Hunter said.
