The president of an area water utility said the water is safe to drink after the department that oversees water quality in the state of Tennessee raised concerns about the utility.

Last week, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation closed its Director's Order to North Greene Utilities.

The water provider is located in the Town of Baileyton in Greene County, and back in August of 2012 it received word from the state that it failed to report various pieces of data to the state as required by law.

As part of the order, the state wrote North Greene Utilities failed to properly collect and submit required monthly bacteriological samples and failed to monitor cryptosporidium, which is a bacteria that causes diarrhea.

In a News Channel 11 investigation, Melissa Hipolit learned from the utility's president, John Waddle, that the issues raised by the state had nothing to do with water safety.

"The director's order was not for the quality of water that we had; it was because the reports were not filed timely," said Waddle.

Waddle said the water quality test data was turned in two days late, but since the order was issued there have been no problems.

TDEC closed the order last week, which means, according to the state, the water is safe to drink.
