We are required to monitor your drinking water for
disinfection byproducts (total trihalomethanes – TTHM - and
haloacetic acids-five - HAA5) every ninety days from the
peak historical month. Results of regular monitoring are
an indicator of whether or not your drinking water meets
health standards.
During the monitoring period of July through September
of 2016, the Cox Ferry 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.

Tri Water Water System
PWS ID# 1111020
Union Parish, Louisiana
Due to a broken water main, the Tri Water Water System is
experiencing problems with the water supply system for customers
who live on: Sandfield Road, Abbey Lane, and Scenic Drive.
Because of these problems, the water produced by our
water supply system is of
questionable microbiological quality.
Therefore, as a precaution, the Tri Water Water System
is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY effective immediately. This BOIL
ADVISORY is to remain in effect until rescinded by the Tri
Water Water System.
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water
before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice,
brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of
foods by the following means:
Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The
one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling
boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in
a clean bottle or pouring it from one clean container to another.
Again, please be sure to
disinfect your own water prior
to consumption until you have
been advised otherwise.
Guidelines for food service
establishments are attached.
Upon notification from
the Office of Public Health’s
State Regional Laboratory
that the samples collected
from our water supply have
been found to be safe, the
State Health Department will
notify the water supply of the
sample results. Upon such
notification, the Tri Water
Water System will then rescind
the Boil Advisory and notify its customers that the water has
been found to be safe.

Downsville, LA 71234
December 2, 2016
The Point Wilhite Water System is currently in violation of
the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for
total trihalomethanes as set forth be 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 TTHM s 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 third quarter
of 2016 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAA are 261
ppb at DBP01 – Littleton Loop Rd, 232 ppb at DBP02 – Curtis
Dean, and238 ppb at DBP03 – Mt. Ararat Church Hwy 553;
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.
The Point Wilhite Water System would like to reassure its
customers the water is safe to drink. We ask for your patience
and understanding as we look for a solution to correct this ongoing
problem. If you have any additional questions or concerns,
please call Ben Bridges at 318-982-3884 and leave a message
or email
