TRI-WATER SYSTEM
The Tri-Water System is currently in violation of the maximum contaminant
level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes as set forth by the State [Part XII of the
Louisiana State Sanitary Code (LAC 51:XII)] and the Federal Primary Drinking
Water Regulations (40 CFR Part 141).
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana
Department of Health (LDH) set drinking water standards and requires
the disinfection of drinking water. Where disinfection is used in the treatment of
drinking water, disinfectants combine with naturally occurring organic and inorganic
matter present in water to form chemicals called disinfection byproducts
(DBPs). EPA and LDH set standards for controlling the levels of disinfectants and
DBPs in drinking water, including trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acid
(HAAs). Some people who drink water containing THMs 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.
In December 1998, EPA set enforceable drinking water standards for TTHMs
at 80 parts per billion (ppb) and for HAA5 at 60 parts per billion (ppb) to reduce
the risk of cancer or other adverse health effects. Compliance with the TTHMs
and HAA5 standard for public water systems serving less than 10,000 individuals
initially became effective and enforceable on January 1, 2004. Compliance with
the TTHMs standard is determined by calculating a locational running annual
average (LRAA) of quarterly TTHMs sample results. Compliance calculations
performed for the first quarter of 2017 show that the system’s current TTHMs
LRAAs are 120 ppb at DBP03 - 5707 Hwy 549 and 133 ppb at DBP04 – 386
Masonic Rd; Thus, the system is currently in violation of the TTHMs standard.
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 businesses). You can do
this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified
immediately. EPA and LDH do not consider this violation to have any serious
adverse health effects on human health as a result of short-term exposure;
however, continued long-term exposure to TTHMs and HAA5 levels above the
standard (e.g., 20 years of exposure) has the potential to have serious adverse
effects on human health.
If you have questions concerning this notice, call Shirley Kyle (secretary)
318-368-4115 or Nathan Wilson (operator) 318-732-0344. The system currently
has automatic flush valves that flush the lines each day. The amount of time set
for flushing will be increased in an effort to correct this problem.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

are 181 ppb at DBP02 – Bill Brown & Hwy 143 and 137 ppb at DBP03 – 1158
Chapman Rd; Thus, the system is currently in violation of the TTHMs standard.
