Tioga apartment water confirmed poisoned

TIOGA The North Dakota Department of health has confirmed that “inappropriate materials” were introduced to water lines servicing a newer apartment complex in northeast Tioga.

Three rounds of sampling were conducted on the lines at Tioga Townhomes with the latest conducted on April 30. Test results confirmed diesel and antifreeze materials were present even after frequent flushing of the lines by the city.

The city has yet to meet with the owners of the facility to discuss options but one city official said that they will try to meet with them Thursday.
