Last year, as.in years past, your tap water met all U.S. Environ- mental Protection Agency (EPA) and state drinking water health standards. Local Water vigilantly safeguards its water supplies and once again we are proud to repOrt that our system has never violated a maximum contaminant level or any other water quality standard. Turbidity, Fluoride-and Chlorine sampling and testing are done at the Hogansville water plant. All other parameters are tested by Georgia EPD laboratories. DO I NEED TO TAKE SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno- compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants. people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/Centers for lisease.Control (CDC) guidelines on appropr/ate means to ]c.'.cn the rlsk of info.'l.)n by Cryptosp,oridiun] and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Water Drinking Hotline (8OO-426-4791). WHERE DOES MY WATER COME FROM? Main Water Supply Source - Blue Creek Reservoir (surface water) Back-Up Source - Flat Creek (surface water) SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT AND ITS AVAILABILITY Chattahoochee-Flint Regional Development Center recently completed a source water assessment for Hogansville water supply sources. The assessment rated the water supply suscept- ability score as "Medium'. The Source Water Protection Plan provides risk assessment for potential sources of contamination. For more information, contact the ChattahoocheeoFlint Regional Development Center, 'SWAP" Project Manager at (770) 854-6026 or (706) 87545721. WHY ARE THERE CONTAMINANTS IN MY DRINKING WATER? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contami- nants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Hotline (8OO-426-4791). The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the WATER QUALITY DATA TABLE The table below lists all of the drinking water contaminants that we detected during the calendar year of the report. The presence of contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. Unless otherwise noted, the data presented in this table is from ttin8 done in the calendar year of the report. The EPA or the State requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than ote per year because the cononttations of these contaminants do not change frequently.
