UNION CITY — Recent testing of Union City’s drinking water shows that potentially harmful levels of chemical byproducts formed when water is disinfected with chlorine have decreased.

The engineer for the borough’s municipal authority, which oversees the borough’s water and sanitary sewer systems, said the test results compiled since late August are a hopeful sign that the quality of drinking water might be improving.

“This is encouraging,” said Gus Maas, president of Hill Engineering of North East.

The five-member municipal authority will take any good news it can get.
