Holmesville Water System,
Inc.
318-982-7299
The Holmesville 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 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 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 first quarter of 2015 show
that the system’s current
TTHMs LRAAs are 187 ppb
at DBP01 - Highway 15 and
200 ppb at DBP02 - Jones
and Pardue Road; 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 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 and HAA5 levels
above the standard (e.g.,
20 years of exposure) has
the potential to have serious
adverse effects on human
health.
The Holmesville Water System
would like to reassure its
customers that the water is
safe to drink. We ask for your
patience and understanding
as we address this ongoing
problem.
Please call 318-982-7299 if
you have any questions or
concerns.

Part XII of the Louisiana
State Sanitary Code requires
the notice to include
the following statements:
We are 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 (May). Results of
regular monitoring are an
indicator of whether or not
your drinking water meets
health standards. During the
monitoring period of January
through March, the Rocky
Branch 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
during the approved month.
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

Necessary action has been
taken to prevent this violation
from recurring.
