             Contaminant Level Violation MCL, LRAA / TTHM

 

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has notified RIVER ACRES WATER SUPPLY CORP TX1780013, that the drinking water being supplied to customers had exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for the total trihalomethanes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has established the MCL for total trihalomethanes to be 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L) based on Location Running Annual Average (LRAA), and has determined that it is a health concern at levels above the MCL. Analysis of drinking water in your community for total trihalomethanes indicates a compliance value in quarter four 2017 of 0.083 mg/L for DBP-O1.

 

Trihalomethanes are a group of volatile organic compounds that are formed when chlorine, added to the water during the treatment process for disinfection, reacts with naturally-occurring organic matter in the water.

 

Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many

Years may experience some problems with their liver, kidney, or central nervous systems and

may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

 

You do not need to use an alternative water supply. However, if you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor to get more information about how this may affect you.

 

We are taking the following actions to address this issue: We are having our Ground and Elevated Tanks chemically cleaned January 9-12, 2018, followed by periodic flushing throughout the system to maintain quality control of our system as necessary. We do not chemically treat our water, we purchase TREATED water from NCW #3.

 

TTHM’s are the result of disinfecting water, which is essential for protecting consumers fromlife-threatening waterborne diseases. The health risks for TTHM’s are extremely small compared to the risks associated with inadequate disinfection. It is important therefore, that disinfection not be compromised in an attempt to decrease such by- products.

If you have any questions concerning this notice, you may contact Brent Burkhart, Field Manager at (361) 387-2614.
