Vienna residents voice water complaints

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA TWP., Ohio - A Trumbull County community is saying their water is clogging up their faucets and it's ruining their appliances.

Vienna residents all have the same complaint. They say their water is filled with calcium carbonate and it's clogging up everything else that water goes through.

Dolores Barrick says, "You should see the amount of water that comes out of my bathtub, it's a trickle. If I wanted to take a tub bath and to fill it up would take 10 minutes."

And then there are the appliances.

Phil Pegg gave us a list. "Start with dishwashers, hot water tanks, shower heads every six months, all the guts in your toilets because of build up there, washing machines."

Pegg says he's replaced his hot water heater alone three times since 2007 because of all the calcium build up.

So what is the Mahoning Valley Sanitary District saying about the problem?

Tom Hollowat from the M.V.S.D says, "By adding recarbonization to the process to remove the calcium carbonate from the water. We'll start the recarbonization in a month or two and it takes 12-18 months after we start it up."

So that means the problem will continue through June or August of 2015.

It's not really the answer people wanted to hear, but at this point they're happy an end is in sight.  Until then they'll continue cleaning and replacing their faucets and appliances.

M.V.S.D. officials say they don't know why it seems to be an issue specifically in the Vienna area.
