Mayor Benny Perry of the Town of Trion is reminding residents that are on the public water system that they are still under a boil water restriction until further notice.

Town of Trion Attorney Albert Palmour said that the town’s water supply has had serious contamination and it would be some time before the water is safe to use.  Palmour said that until the reservoir and the system is entirely cleaned and inspected by the EPD the water would be unusable.

The Town of Trion’s water treatment facility is owned by Mt. Vernon Mills.
