Lyndonville Suspends Manager of Water System

(Host) The manager of the Lyndonville water system, which was feared to be contaminated after a break-in at a reservoir, is being suspended from his job. Scott Townsend will begin his two-week suspension on Saturday. Village trustees say the suspension stems from discrepancies about when Townsend checked the reservoir.

Townsend told officials the lid was okay at 4 a.m. on May 15. It was found broken that afternoon. A group of Lyndon State College students have since admitted breaking into the reservoir in late April. Tests show that the water system is okay.
