With subzero temperatures in the forecast, take some time to make sure your water pipes -- including your water meter -- are safe from freezing. Click here and here for suggestions from the American Water Works Association . Even just leaving cabinet doors open under the sink can help prevent frozen pipes, or leaving a trickle of water running.
The public drinking water notice which was sent to customers in the 200 area was specifically written by the EPA for distribution. Unfortunately, any changes to the text of this document require prior EPA approval. In an effort to provide additional information to the public going forward however, the District is currently reviewing this document.
The recent exceedance of TTHM in this area is a result of the running quarterly average value being in excess of .080 mg/l. During the summer of 2013, an algae bloom in Lake Erie source water contributed to excessive organic loadings at the treatment plant. This in turn has caused the running quarterly results to exceed the MCL. We anticipate the 1st quarter sampling in 2014 to bring the running average below the MCL.
