This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you eveW day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of ddnking water. We want you to undamtand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to prevldth9 you ~ infommticn because informed customers are our best allies. Our water source is from walls drawing fi'om the Miocene Aquifer. We also purchase water from the Town of Woodville. The source water assessment has been completed for our public water system to determine the overall susceptibility of its ddnking water supply to identify potential sources of contamination. A report containing detailed information on how the susnepfibirgc/ daferrnlnatlons were made has been furnished to our public water system and is avellable for viewing upon request. The w.e. lls for the Old Rivet" Water Aesodaflon have received lower rsnkings in terms of susoeptibillty to contamination. If you have any qu~tions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Tony Thomas at 601.810.8216. We w~nt our valued customers to be informed about their water utJlRy, if you want to learn more, please join us at any of our regularly scheduled reaeSngs. They are held on the second Monday of each month at 5:00 PM st 610 Main Street, Woodvllle. MS 3g669. We routinely monitor for contaminants in your ddnking water according to Federal and State laws. This table below lists an of the drinking water contaminants that were detected during the period of January 1= to December 31 =,2017. In cases where monitoring walm't required In 2017, the table reflects the most recent results. As water travels over the surface of land or underground, it dissolves naturally occulting minerals and, in some cases, ra(~oaofive mata~als and can pick up substances or contaminants from the presence of animals or from human ac~vity; microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, that may coma from sewage treatment plar~ts. septic systems, agdcoltursl livestock operations, and wildJife; inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be natu~lly occurdn9 or result from urban storm-wster runoff, industrial, or domes'tic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining,or farming; pesticides end herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm-water runoff. ~ind residential uses; organic chemical oontaminanta, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which ere by-products of industrial processes and petroleum produc~on, and can also come from gas stations and septic systems; radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mirdng activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to ddnk, I=PA prescribes reguleffons that Ilmti the amount of certain contaminants in wa~r provided by public water systems. All ddnking wa~er, including bottled drthkin9 water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. It's important to remember that the presence of these contareinants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. =017 Mad D~U~ WaW Q.~y Raper Calm ~ Wmr/Umda~on PWSlc OO3OOO1 M~Z~e were ~esed to Wase~ to you~ yew~ ~ Q~ ~W Repo~ Th= mpo. ld d~ to k~mm you abo~ ~ ~ ~ and se~ we de~b ymJ e~dmy.

Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - The "Maximum Allowed" (MCL) is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as dose to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. * Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) - The =Goaf'(MCLG) is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expectod dskto health. MCLGs elbow for e margin of safety. Maximum Residuel Disinfectant Level (MRDL) - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addtilon of dialnfectant is necessary to control microbial contaminants. Maximum Realduel Dlelnfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) - The level of e ddnking water disinfectant below which there is no knovmior expected risk of health. MRDLGs do not rmlect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
