IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Laf/Jo/Saline CO Cons PWSD2 Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards Este informe contiene informaci├│n muy importante sobre su agua potable. Trad├║zcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

The Department of Natural Resources has notified us a violation in drinking water standards has occurred and we are notifying you within 30-days of receiving the notice as required.  Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.This test is based on an average of four quarters which include results taken before the August 1, 2018 treatment technique conversion to chloramines.  The most recent December 2018 test showed residuals drop by 74.9 parts per billion compared to the test taken in June 2018.   

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants.  Testing results collected during the twelve-month period ending September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2018, show that our system exceeds the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL).

Analyte:  TTHM, Locational Running Annual Avg (LRAA) for the period ending: September 30, 2018: 88 and December 31, 2018: 85, LRAA Unit of Measure (UOM): UG/L, MCL Result: 80, MCL UOM: UG/L

WHAT SHOULD I DO?  You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply.  However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

What does this mean?  Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) are formed when chlorine combines with naturally occurring organic matter in the water.  Disinfection is necessary to inactivate harmful microbes, such as bacteria and viruses, which may be present in untreated water.  Regulates DBPs consist of Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids (HAAs).  The MCL is based on long-term exposure of drinking two liters (about two quarts) of water every day for seventy years.  Some people who drink water-containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Consolidated Public Water Supply District No. 2 has worked with Bartlett & West Engineers for more than a year to research options for reducing the level of TTHM's that are forming in the water.  A plan to incorporate ammonia into the disinfection process was approved by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the equipment was installed and became operational on August 1, 2018.  PWSD No. 2 continues to do special testing and monitor the levels with the assistance of DNR to continue lowering the levels since the new equipment's implantation.

Additionally, you may contact the Missouri Department of Natural Resources' Kansas City Regional office at 816-251-0700 or the Public Drinking Water Branch at 573-751-5331.

Please share this information with all other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
