GENERAL INFORMAllON Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be ebectsd to contain at least small amounts o1 some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not nacoasadly indicate that water poses a health risk. More information (=an be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hofline (800-426.4791). Some people may be more vutnarabld to contaminants in ddnking water than the general population. Immune-compromised bereo, such as persons wth cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people v, dh HIV/AIDS or o0wr immune system dksorders, some eldedy, and infants can be bedirulaify at dak from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care pfovers. EPNCDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidlum and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Ddnking Water Hotlina (800-426-4791). The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) inolude 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 mitmreis and, in some cases, red, ioective 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: (1) MieroOtal contaminants, such as via.ryes end beClerts, which may come from sewage treatment ptants,  systems, agriculturld livestock operaflona, and wildlife. (2) Inoiganlc contaminants, such as salts and metalS, WhiCh can be naturelly-ucaJrdng or results from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewatar discharges, oll and gas production, mining, or farming. (3) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from • vendty of sources such as agdoulture, urban stormwatar runoff, and residential uses. (4) Organic chemtsal contamManta, Including syntbetl¢ end volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial WOCeSlN end potroleuro production, and can also come fm gas stations, urban stormweter runoff, and septic systems. (5) Rad¢oacUve contaminants, wNch can be naturally,occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mink activas. In order to ensure that tap water is sate'to"ddnk'7 EPA prescribes regulabona which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public ter systems, Fnoa and Drug AdrninisaUon regulations astablish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same orofecdon for lubiic health.

DEFINITIONS Contaninants in your drinking water are routinely monitored according lo Federal and State regulets. The table On the next page  the rasulte of our menltodng for the period of January 1 = to December 31  2012. in the table and eleewhera in this report you will find many terms and bbrevisttons you might not be lemifiar wth. The to beflniltons are provided to help you better understand these terms: MaJdrnum nt Level, or MCL. the highest level of a contaminant thai is aJtowed in drinking water. MCLs are sat as close to the MCLGs as feasible ung the best availabts treatment technology. um Conta Level Goal, or MCLG - the levelof a cordamlnant in drthking water below which there Is no known Or expected  to health. MCLGs allow for • margin of safety. Non-detects (NO) - lab analysis indicates that the contamitmnt is not present Parts per mR/ion (ppm) or Mrams per liter (rag4). One part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000. Pans per billion (ppb) or Micrograms pe liter - one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,00@000. P/cocunbs per//tar (pCVL) - plooounas per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water. Action Level. the €oncentraflo Of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or oer requirements which a water system must follow. Treatment Techn/que 07) - a required process Intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. Nephelometric Turbidily Unit (NTU) • nepetometdc turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity, or cloudiness, of water. Turtdtty m excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person, Turbidity is monitored because it is a good indicator of the eftectivena¢>s of our filtration system. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal or MRDLG - the level of ddnking water disinfectant below which them is no knovm or exbertod risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control mic,'0st contaminants. Maximum Residual Dis#ffectent Level Or MRDL - the highest level of a dnfectsnt altowed in drinking water. There is convincing evtoenco that addico of a disinfectant Is necessary for cohtrof of microbial contaminants.

The state allows us to monitOr for some contaminants lasa than once pet year because the cowentreflens of these contaminants do not change frequently. Some of our data in  above tables, though accurate, is more than one year old. The U.S Environmental Protaclton Agency sets MCL'e at very aldngent levels. In developing the standards EPA assumes that the average adult ddnks 2 liters of water each day throughout a 70-yea life span. EPA generally sets MCLs at levels that wll result in no adverse health effects for some contaminants or a one-in- l¢n-lMfWJ IN chance of hevina the bescflbed health effects for other contaminants. ADDITIONAL NENcTH INFORMATION It prasent, eldrated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially fOr pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from metedais and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Casbewood Water Authority is responsible for proving high quality drinking water, i b¢if cannOt control the variety of matadals used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting i for several hours, you can mirdmize the potential  lead exposure by flushing your tap for 15 to 30 seconds Or until if becomes cofd or  a steady temperature before using water for drinking or cooking. If you ere concerned about lead in your ater, you may vsh to have your water tested. Intormetion on lead in drinking water, Icing methods, and step you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hoflins Or at httpJ/ VIOLATION IPORMAllON Your water system did not have any violatkxiI in 2012.
