The Davis County Environmental Health Department, Farmington Fire and Farmington PD have responded to the Farmington Pond on reports that the water appears to be green in color. The Environmental Health Department has run several tests on the water and determined it to be inert, non-toxic dye that was placed in the water. The event is being investigated by Farmington Police Department as a criminal mischief type prank. The Farmington Pond is a non-drinking water source that runs down into Farmington Bay. The water’s PH levels are normal and will not harm any wildlife. Initial tests reveal this is the same type of dye that is used to check water flow and is environmentally safe. The only issue is that it will look green for a couple of days, but is not harmful to humans or the environment. Farmington residents may receive a public notice via use of the automated emergency phone contacting system. Public questions can be directed to the Davis Environmental Health Department at 801-525-5128.
