Cox Ferry 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 DNPs 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 the 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 2016 show that the system’s
current TTHMs LRAAs are 89 ppb at DBP01-120 EASY LIVING LANE; 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 efforts on human health as a result of short-term exposure; however, continued longterm
exposure to TTHMs level above the standard (e.g.,20 years of exposure) has the potential to have
serious adverse effects on human health. Cox Ferry Association (Water System) is pursuing a possible
merger with a nearby water system to alleviate this problem in the near future.
