WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — A West Des Moines Water Works employee is out of a job for falsifying a water quality report.
A spokesperson says a plant operator filed a report saying a water sample tested negative for bacteria when it was actually positive. Another employee noticed and notified management.
A second round of tests was ordered and they came back clean.
We’re told the water is safe to drink and nobody was put at risk by the falsified report.
The employee was allowed to resign.
