City officials in Auburn are speaking out after a public notice was issued last week stating that a disinfection byproduct exceeded EPA standards.
The sample collected at the 33 York Street location prompted some residents to wonder if it was caused by Nucor Steel.
City Manager Jeff Dygert said at a meeting Thursday that Nucor has nothing to do with the water that is sampled or collected at the site.
The EPA requires that water providers give public notice when disinfection byproducts exceed 80 parts per billion.
Public water in Auburn remains safe to consume.
