The 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 DBPs in drinking water,
including trihalomethanes
(THMs) and haloacetic acid
(HAAs). Some people who
drink water containing THMs
in excess of the MCL over
may years my 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
part 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 (LRAA0 of
quarterly TTHMs sample
results. Compliance calculations
performed for the
fourth quarter of 2014 show
that the system’s current
TTHMs LRAAs are 183 ppb
at DBP01 - 120 Easy Living
Lane and 153 ppb at DBP02
– 222 Easy Living Lane; and
the first quarter of 2015 show
that the system’s current
TTHMs LRAAs are 150 ppb
at DBP01 – 120 Easy Living
Lane and DBP02 – 222
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
effects on human health
as a result of short-term
exposure; however, continued
long-term exposure
to TTHMs level above the
standard (e.g., 20 years of
exposure) has the potential
to have serious adverse
effects on human health.
The Well Operator, Ben
Bridges, is currently working
to get the required chemicals
in balance to achieve
compliance.
If you require additional
information, contact Ben
Bridges at (318) 245-7121.
