DAYTON, OH - Today, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) made the following statement following his keynote address at the Dayton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Breakfast:
“After multiple events in 2019 threatened our community’s infrastructure, I created the Dayton Water User Committee to review the water quality in our region,” said Turner. “They confirmed that our water is safe to drink. Daytonians deserve this confirmation and I am thankful for the City of Dayton and Montgomery County for prioritizing this urgent study,” concluded Turner.
Background: In 2020, Congressman Turner created the Dayton Water User Committee, composed of regional business leaders to conduct a review of the City of Dayton’s water utility management practices relative to water quality and related long-term infrastructure management. The purpose of the Dayton Water User Committee is to ensure and/or validate the overall sufficiency of water utility management practices to support ongoing economic and quality of life factors for businesses and residents in the Dayton metropolitan area.
