Holmesville Water System
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 second quarter of 2014 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAAs are 189 ppb at DBP01 - Highway 15 and 198 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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Monitoring Requirement not met by Rocky Branch Water System, LA1111013
We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water meets health standards. During the reporting period of May 2014 the Rocky Branch Water System “did not monitor or test” or “did not complete all monitoring or testing” for coliform bacteria as set forth in the State and Federal Primary Drinking Water Regulations [Part XII of the Louisiana State Sanitary Code (LAC 51 :XII)]. Therefore, the Rocky Branch Water System cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time. This situation was due to: Failure to collect required bacteriological samples for monitoring period May 01, 2014 through May 31, 2014 for the Rocky Branch Water System. What does this mean? This is not an emergency. There is nothing you need to do at this time. As our customer, you have the right to know what happened and what is being done to correct the situation. We have contacted the District Safe Drinking Water Office to discuss the violation and have resumed monitoring as required. If you have questions about this notice please contact the water system certified operators Earl Babineau 372-5968 / Nicky Haye 376-9697. Or the office at 726-4409.
