The COMMUNITY WATER SYSTEM is a public water system subject to regulation under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Those regulations require the notification of customer whenever a violation occurs, and is the basis for this notice.
Only 19 of the required 20 valid bacteriological sample results, were received during May 2021.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets drinking water standards and has determined that the presence of total coliforms is a possible health concern.
The water system did not conduct the required monitoring or obtain valid results for total coliform bacteria during this time period and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of the drinking water at the time.
Failure to meet this requirement does not necessarily mean that the water is unsafe or that alternative sources of water should be used.
The water system has since corrected the issue and completed a regular monthly sampling period in which all 20 bacteriological samples were in compliance with the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Steps have been taken to verify that all sampling requirements will be met each month.
Should you have any questions concerning this notice, contact the water system and 501-825-7294 or the Engineering Section of the Department of Health at 501-661-2623.
