WATER QUAILITY UPDATE: THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION AND RESULTS WERE RECEIVED BY THE TOWN FROM JAMES TAYLOR. MR. TAYLOR IS THE CONTRACTED WATER OPERATOR FOR THE TOWN OF DEBEQUE.
Attached is the sample results for the water entering the Town. These are the yearly Inorganic Group samples (IOC’s), Nitrates and Volatile Organics Group samples (VOC’s) which include trihalomethanes (TTHM’s) for the Town. I sampled for these on August 29 five days after the sample that was in violation of the TTHM’s and shows that we were below the MCL of 80 parts per billion (ppb) in town, the results for TTHM’s are at the bottom of page 7 and show that the town water was at 41.3 ppb. I also included the VOC table which shows the TTHM’s highlighted in blue. Best way for me to explain a part per billion is to say that there would be .0413 pounds or approximately ½ of an ounce of TTHM in every million gallons of water. To show how minute this amount is, it would be an amount about the size of the end of a pen in a million gallons of water. I hope I have explained it in a way that makes it easier to understand.
Just as a side note, the report also shows no other VOC, IOC or nitrate problems and are well below any MCL’s or are non-existent.
