MOSCOW, Idaho -- People living in a North Idaho trailer park plagued with water issues said things have gotten back to normal.
In late 2013, residents at the Syringa Mobile Home Park were notified that their water was not safe to drink.
Amber Burnett forgot how convenient it is to have safe water on tap. It was just a few weeks after she moved into the mobile home park in 2013 that she was informed that the water was not safe.
“When we had our last management of the trailer park in general, they didn’t let us know anything. So we were kind of frustrated there,” said Burnett.
The water was not safe to drink, even after it was boiled. A group of residents and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality filed lawsuits.
In March, the warning was lifted. Employees at the trailer park installed a chlorination machine, fixed leaky pipes and installed new pumps in wells. Residents said they were given discounted rent during the months that the warning was in place.
The park’s manager said they are now testing the water each day. The manager declined to comment on the two pending lawsuits.
