PUBLIC NOTICE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER MONITORING REQUIREMENTS NOT MET FOR CROTHERSVILLE UTILITIES

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard.  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 the situation.
We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. The results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets EPA’s health standards. The last monitoring period testing for Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids was not performed due to an oversight by our staff and the staff of our contract laboratory, therefore, we cannot be sure of the quality of water at that time.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g. bottle) water supply.  However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. Some people who drink trihalomethanes 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.  Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may also be at an increased risk for getting cancer.
What happened? What is being done?
Annually, our contract laboratory, sends us testing kits for all of our required parameters. The test kits for Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids were not sent and we did not realize that these tests were not performed. The tests are currently being sampled for and will be reported to EPA.  If there is an issue with these contaminants after the test is completed, we will inform all of our customers, as soon as we have the results. This process will be complete by January 31, 2017. We do not anticipate any issues with our water exceeding the MCL based on results from the past.
For more information, please contact Chris Mains at (812) 793-2311 or 111 E. Howard Street, Crothersville, IN 47229.
