Farmington Press:
"Members also voted to allow the VFW to sell Missouri Lottery Pull Tabs on public property during the Country Days weekend.

Two pieces of legislation approved will allow for contracted maintenance to be done at the Farmington Water Park in the way of painting prior to the park opening for the season, and for engineering design and construction services to be done by Taylor Engineering for readying one of the city’s wells for radionuclide removal.

Radionuclides are microscopic particles which naturally are generated in the earth’s crust and can be found in some groundwater sources. While the amount of radionuclide contamination has not significantly changed in Farmington’s drinking water system in the past several decades, the amount of radionuclides allowed in public drinking water systems by the federal government has been lowered significantly in the past decade.

Now the city must put measures in place to bring the water system in compliance with the stricter federal guidelines."
