The Downsville Charter School 2014-2015 Budget will be available for public inspection from August 12, 2014 thru September 11, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 3p.m. at the Downsville Charter School, 4787 Hwy 151 , Downsville, LA 71234. Phone (318) 982-5318.
Please be advised that a public hearing will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 11, 2014 to adopt the 2014-2015 DCS Budget. This meeting will be held at Downsville Town Hall.
The Downsville Water System is required to monitor your drinking water for disinfection byproducts (total trihalomethanes [TTHM] and haloacetic acids-five [HAA5]) every 90 days from the peak historical month (March). Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water meets health standards. During the monitoring period of April through June, 2014, the Downsville Water System did not monitor, did not complete all monitoring, or did not report the results for total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids-five (HAA5), and therefore we cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time
This violation occurred because of the failure to collect the required samples for total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids (HAA5) from the water system’s distribution system.
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.
Necessary action has been taken to prevent this violation from recurring.
The Downsville 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 disinfections byproducts (DPBs). EPA and LDHH 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, EPS 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 second quarter of 2014 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAA is 91 ppb at DBP02 – Sue Calhoun Rd & Hwy. 145; 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 apartment, 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.
