UV treatment should begin by March

BAKER CITY —Baker City expects to have a temporary UV treatment plan operating by March 1.

The discovery of crytosporidium in the city’s water in July caused city officials to rush to find a way to address the problem. The city council voted in the fall to have a contractor install a UV system that would filter out the crypto, a micorscopic parasite that sickened residents.

Baker City Manager Mike Kee said he expect the $130,000 machine to be purifying water by March 1. 

The crypto outreak was believed to have originated at Elk Creek, because a sample of water from the stream in early August contained 913 crypto  occysts.
