FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — The City of Forsyth has released some information concerning a period of time in 2020 where the regular monitoring of drinking water did not take place that could have affected people’s health.

According to the release from Forsyth, the water system violated a drinking water requirement between April 1st and April 30th of 2020, where regular monitoring to see whether or not drinking water had Total Coliform/E. coli in it was not completed. Officials cannot be sure of the quality of the City’s drinking water during that time.
