Starting as soon as today, every drop of Baker City’s drinking water will be bombarded with crypto-inactivating ultraviolet light before it gets to your faucets.

The temporary UV system the city installed last week was scheduled to be turned on today, City Manager Mike Kee said Tuesday.

City officials have hired a company to install a permanent UV treatment facility that is slated to be finished by the end of this year.
