This report is designed to inform you about the quality of your water and services we deliver to you every day (Este informe contiene informaci6n muy importante sobre su agua potable. Traduzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien). Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to under- stand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source(s) are list- ed below: Source Name S o L 1 r c e Water Type WELL #3, HIGHWAY Ground Water WELL #1 (EAST) Ground Water WELL#4 G r o u n d Water The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bot- tled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reser- voirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be pre- sent in source water include: Microbial Contaminants - such as viruses and bact er ia, which may come from sewage treatment plant s, sept ic sys- tems, agricultural livestock operati ons, and wildlife. 1oprganic Contam,inants - such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurri ng or result from urban st ormwater runoff, ind ustrial , or domestic wastewater dis- charges, oil and gas pr od uct ion , m inin g, or f arming. Pesticides and Herbicides - which may come from a vari- ety of sources such as agricult ure, urban st or m water run off., and resid en t ial uses. Organic Chemical Contaminants - including syn- thetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-prod- uct s of indust rial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stat ions, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems. Radioactive Contaminants - which can be nat ur all y-occur- ring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining act iviti es. A Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP) is now available from our office. This plan is an assessment of a delineated area around our listed sources through which contaminants, if present, could migrate and reach our source water. It also includes an inventory of poten- tial sources of contamination within the delineated area, and a determination of the water supply's susceptibility to conta- mination by the identified potential sou rces. According to the Source Water Assessment Plan, our water system had a susceptibility rat- ing of 'MEDIUM'. If you would like to review the Source Water Assessment Pl an, please feel free to contact our office. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA pre- scribes regulat ions which limit the amount of certain contami- nants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regula- tions establish limits for conta- minants in bottled water which must provide the same protec- tion for public healt h. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you have any ques- tions about this report, want to attend any scheduled meetings, or simply want to learn more about your drinking water, please contact JENNY SMITH at 318 -41 3-7761 . If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for preg- nant women and young chil- dren. Lead in drinking water is p r im ar ily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumb- ing. GOLDONNA WATER SYSTEM is responsible for providing high qual it y d rin king wat er, but cannot control the variet y of materials used in plumbing comporient s. When your water has been sit t ing for several h ours, you can mini- mize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 m inutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are con- cerned about lead in your wat er, you may wish to have your water t ested. Information on lead in drinking wat er, testing meth- ods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http:/ / www safewat er/ lead . The Louisiana Department of Health routinely monitors for co nst it uen t s in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The tables that follow show the results of our monitoring dur- ing the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2020. Drinking wa ter, including bot- tled wat er, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some conta- minants. The prese n ce of con- taminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. In the tables below, you will find many terms and abbreviat io ns you might not be familiar with. To help you better under- stand these terms, w e' ve pro- vided the following defini- tions: Pa,rt s per million (ppm } or Milligrams per ltter (mg/L} - one part per million corre- sponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/L) - one part p er billion corre- sponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000. Pico_c.uries per liter (pCi/ L} - p lco curies per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in wat er. Treat m enf Technique (TT} - an enforceable procedure or level of technological perfor- mance which public water sys- tems must follow to ensure cont rol of a co nt am in ant . Action level (AL) - the con- centrat io n of a cont am inant that, if exceeded, triggers treat- ment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Maximum contam_in an t level (M CL} - the " M axim um Allow ed" M CL is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCL' s are set as close to the MCLG' s as feasible using the best avail ab le treatment tech- nology. M aximum cont am in ant level goal (MCLG) - the ''Go al" is the lev e l of a contami- nant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk t o human healt h. MCLG's allow for a margin of safety. Maximum resid u al disin- fect ant level (MRDL) - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There ls convincing eviden ce that ad dit ion of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum r esidual disinfec- tant level goal {M RDLG) - The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expect ed risk to healt h. M RDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfect an ts to co nt ro l m icrobi al contaminants. Level 1 assessm ent -A study of the wat er system to identify potential problems and determine (if possible) why total coliform bacteria have been found in our wat er sys- tem. Level 2 Assessment - A very det ail ed study of the wat er system to identify potential problems and determi ne (if possible) why an E. coli MCL violat ion has occurred and/or why total coliform bac- teria have been found in our water system on multiple occa- sions. During the period covered by this report we had t h e below noted violat ions. Compliance Period Analyte Type No Violations Oceurr ed in the Calendar Year of 2020 -Our water system tested a minimum of 1 samples per month in accordance with the Total Coliform Rule for micro- biological contaminants.
