Dear Editor:

I would like to commend the Clinton Water Department for the outstanding job it has done cleaning up our city water. I have a "Big Blue" whole house sediment filter, and during the worst times the canister would be full of black liquid along with the filter itself being solid black, even changing it every three months. I recently had it changed on the standard six-month interval, and was very happy to see the water was completely clear in the canister, and the filter its expected degree of sediment saturation based on years of using them. This was an amazing turnaround and the crew deserves a "great job!" compliment for all the hard work it has taken to get it back where it used to be.
