Legal Notices
last updated: 11-15-2017
The Salem 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
and Hospitals (LDHH) 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 LDHH
set standards for controlling
the levels of disinfectants
and DBPs in drinking water,
including trihalomethanes
(THMs) and haloacetic
acids (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 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 the
quarterly TTHMs sample
results. Compliance calculations
performed for the
third quarter of 2017 show
that the systems current
TTHMs LRAA is 187 ppb at
DBP02- TURKEY CREEK
RD AND PLATT RD and 214
ppbat DBP03 –LANDFILL
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 LDHH 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 level above the
standard (e.g., 20 years of
exposure) has the potential
to have serious adverse
effects on human health.
If you have any question
please contact Gary Taylor
at 318-376-5970.
