Westerly Residents Warned About Excess Chemicals In Water

State health officials are issuing a warning to Westerly residents about excess chemicals in the water supply.  The problem stems from a water treatment equipment failure.  Residents who haven't turned on their faucets since Friday should flush their system before drinking or using any water.  The health department says the increase in chemicals caused the pH level to rise, which can cause irritation to the eyes, skin, lips, mouth, nose and mucous membranes.
