2017 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report Of City of Lake Butler We are pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand 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 is two ground water wells from the Florid an Aquifer Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatments required are chlorination for disinfection purposes and aeration for odor control. In 2017, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on o ur system The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There is one source with low concern and a second source with moderate concern The assessment results are available on the DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the water plant operator at (386) 4964853. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend a ny of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held the second Monday of each month, beginning at 5:15pm. The City of Lake Butler Water Treatment personnel routinely monitor for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 01, 2017 to December 31, 2017 Data obtained before January 01, 2017 and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done. In this table you will find many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions: Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter ( g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L ) measure of the radioactivity in water Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Action Level (AL) The conc entration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or 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 or MRDL The highest level of a 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 or 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 con taminants. 2 TEST RESULTS TABLE Microbiological Contaminants Total Coliform Bacteria: Highest Monthly Number is the highest number of positive samples for systems collecting fewer than 40 samples per month Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of Sampling (mo/yr) MCL Violation Y/N Highest Monthly Number MCLG MCL Likely Source of Contamination Total Coliform Bacteria 5/2017 & 9 /201 7 N 1 0 For systems collecting fewer than 40 samples per month: presence of coliform bacteria in more than 1 sample collected during a month Naturally present in the environment Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Lake Butler is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize 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 http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead 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 can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally oc curring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain co ntaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. 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 the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obt ained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 8004264791. 4 Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno 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 should seek advice about drinking water from t heir health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (18004264791). We at the City of Lake Butler would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. Sincerely, City of Lake Butler Utility Staff 2 TEST RESULTS TABLE Microbiological Contaminants Total Coliform Bacteria: Highest Monthly Number is the highest number of positive samples for systems collecting fewer than 40 samples per month Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of Sampling (mo/yr) MCL Violation Y/N Highest Monthly Number MCLG MCL Likely Source of Contamination Total Coliform Bacteria 5/2017 & 9 /201 7 N 1 0 For systems collecting fewer than 40 samples per month: presence of coliform bacteria in more than 1 sample collected during a month Naturally present in the environment Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)
