IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Levels of TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5) and TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES (TTHM) Above Drinking Water Standards
The Town of Proctor’s water system recently exceeded drinking water standards. 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.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results were sampled for the last four quarters, ending with the Third Quarter of 2014. Results show our system exceeds the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5). The standard for TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5) is 0.060 MG/L. The running annual average *(last 4 quarters) result was 0.073 MG/L for TOTAL HALOACETIC ACIDS (HAA5).
Additionally, results show our system exceeds the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES (TTHM). The standard for TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES (THMs) is 0.080 MG/L. The running annual average (last 4 quarters) result was 0.114 for TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES (TTHM) .
What should I do?
You may choose to utilize carbon filtration (pitcher style or faucet mounted) which is known to reduce disinfection byproducts. If you have specific health concerns, consult with your doctor.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk.
Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. In animal studies, some haloacetic ackds have been associated with reproductive or developmental effects. Additionally, some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. In animal studies, some total trihalomethanes have been associated with reproductive or developmental effects.
What is being done?
The Town Water System will be switching over from a surface water source to a groundwater source in early December 2014. We are working very closely with the VT ANR DEC Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection Division to implement this change.
For more information, please contact the Water Department Operators, at 459-2501 or 45 Main Street, Proctor, VT 05765.
Please share this information with all the 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 business). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is posted by Proctor Water Department.
