B8 March 31,2011 THE HART COUNTY NEWS-HERALD Yard Sale Yard Sale HORSE CAVE WATER COMPANY WATER QUALITY REPORT FOR YEAR 2010 Water System ID: KY0500476 Manager: David Paige Phone: (270) 773-2135 CCR Contact: Adrian Gossett Phone: (270) 773-2135 Mailina Address: P. O. Box 399 Cave City KY 42127 Meetina Location and Time: Houk Insurance Office Last Tuesday each month at 5:15 PM This report is designed to info'm the public about the quality of water and services provided on a daily basis. Our commitment is to provide a safe, clean, and reliable supply of drinking water. We want to assure that we will continue to monitor, improve, and protect the water system and deliver a high quality product. We purchase our water exclusively from the Green River Valley Water District. GRVWD treats surface, water from the Green River and Rio Springs. The following is the Summary for the Green River Valley Water District: The source of raw water for, the Green River Valley Water District is the Green River and Rio Springs in Hart County. An analysis of the overall susceptibility to contamination of the Green River Valley Water District's water supply indicated that this susceptibility is high. Sources of high potential impact include: Highway 31E and Route 569, underground storage tanks, agricultural land use, domestic water wells, and septic systems. This source assessment for GRVWD raw water supply is available through Barren River Development District, P.O. Box 90005, Bowling Green, KY 42102, (270) 781- 2381 or through David Paige (270) 773-2135. LOST Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects may be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and may pick up Substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity, contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, (sewage plants, septic systems, livestock operations, or wildlife). Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, (naturally occurring or from stormwater runoff, wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, of farming). Pesticides and herbicides, (stormwater runoff, agriculture or residential uses). Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, (by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, or from gas stations, stormwater runoff, or septic systems). Radioactive contaminants, (naturally occurring or from oil and gas production or mining activities). In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA rescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for Contaminants in bottled water to provide the same protection l'or public health. ..... " Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immune-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing Chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people shouid seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Some or all of these definitions may be found in this report: Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to (00mali_ty, 00OnT00[a. otoumlamt 1 ,L the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) - the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) - the highest level era disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) - the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants' to control microbial contaminants. Below Detection Levels (BDL) - laboratory analysis indicates that the contaminant is not present. Not Applicable (N/A) - does not apply. Parts per million (ppm) - or milligrams per liter, (mg/l). One part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. Parts per billion (ppb) - or microgriuns per liter, (pg/L). One part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000. Parts per trillion (ppt) - one part per trillion corresponds to one minute in 2,000,000 years, or asingle penny in $10,000,000,000. Parts per quadrillion (ppq)- one part per quadrillion corresponds to one minute in 2,000,000,000 years or one penny in $10,000,000,000,000. Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) - a measure of the radioactivity in water. Millirems per year (mrem/yr) - measure of radiation absorbed by the body. Million Fibers per Liter (MFL) - a measure of the presence of asbestos fibers that are longer than 10 micrometers. Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU) - a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can provide a medium for microbial growth. Turbidity is monitored because it is a good indicator of the effectiveness of the filtration system.. Variances & Exemptions (V&E) - State or EPA permission not to meet an MCL or a treatment technique under certain conditions. Action Level (AL) - the concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system shall follow. Treatment Technique (TT)-, a required processqntended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. Information About Lead: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious healthproblems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Your local public water system is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cdnnot control th';dt of materials used 'in pl: eomponents:When your watei hag been sitting for several, hours, you can minincze the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at Spanish (Espafiol) Este informe contiene inferrnaci6 muy importante sobre la calidad de sn agua beber.

As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less ottcn than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of/he data in this table, though rcprncntative, may be more than one year old. Unless otherwise noted, the report level is the hi,ht level detected.
