Our community water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have the right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results from the third quarter of 2016 show that our system exceeded the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL) for Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standard for HAA5 is 0.060 mg/L averaged at each sampling location for a year. The 2016 third quarter level of HAA5 that exceeded the MCL was 0.067 mg/L at sampling point 502.
What Should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time. These violations do not pose a threat to the quality of the water supplied. Residents should not be alarmed and do not need to seek alternative water supplies. The supplier is taking corrective actions to ensure that adequate monitoring and reporting will be maintained. Some people who drink water-containing haloacetic acids in excess of the maximum contaminant level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
What happened? What is being done?
We are continuing to monitor for HAA5.
