Dyersville Addressing High Radium Levels In Water

  • Photo
DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) The eastern Iowa cities of Dyersville and Farley have long dealt with persistently high levels of radium in their drinking water, and now city officials in one community are taking action.

The Dyersville City Council on Jan. 6 approved a $1 million project for a filtration system that aims to lower radium levels. Dyersville Mayor Alvin Haas says the project is a preventative action, and the water is safe to drink.

Radium is naturally occurring in the area, but ingesting excessive levels can lead to higher risks for cancer in some people. Dyersville and Farley have levels that are not considered imminently dangerous, but they surpass the state-mandated threshold.

The Telegraph Herald reports city officials in Farley are monitoring how Dyersville addresses the issue.
