The Concord 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 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 2016 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAAs are 320 ppb at DBP01 – 802 Hwy
348 and 298 ppb at DBP02 – 2597 Hwy 551; 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 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.

WILLIAMS ROAD and ppb198 at DBP03-2046 HICKS FRAISER RD; thus, the system is currently in violation of

the new 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 2016 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAA are 301 ppb at DBP01 – Hooker
