There were no violations during the 2013 calendar year. The source of our water is groundwater. Our water quality testing shows the following results: CONTAMINANT Copper (ppm) MCL- (MCLG) Type Compliance Date Violation Source .

DEFINITIONS Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL)- The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in dnnking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. = Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG)-- The level of a contaminant in dnnking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. ppb -- parts per billion. ppm -- parts per million. NIA- Not applicable ND-- Not detected RAA- Running Annual Average LRAA- Locational Running Annual Average IDSE - Initial Distribution System Evaluation Action Level (AL) - The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other require- ments which a water system must follow. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) - The level of a ddnking water disinfectant below Which there is no known or expected dsk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) - The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition ofa disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. SGL - Single Sample Result TCR - Total Coliform Rule MONITORING VIOLATION OF THE WATER TESTING SCHEDULE Our water system violated a ddnking water standard(s) over the past year. Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct these situations. We, (the Cadisle Public Water Supply), are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our ddnking water meets health standards. Dudng_the month of February.2014 we did not collect and test our 5 required samples for Total Coliform Bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water dudng that time. What should I do? There is nothing you need to do at this time. Bacteria samples were taken within the same week as the violation and were deemed safe. Carlisle has a history of on time and safe bacteda samples. The month of February was very snowy and a short month. We simply failed to collect our required number of samples. To avoid this in the future, we will take our bacteria samples during the first half of each month. For more information, please contact: City Hall Monday thru Friday 8 am to 5pm. GENERAL INFORMATION: 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 posed a health risk. More information about contaminants or potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). .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 eldedy, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPNCDC guidelines on appropdate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause sedous health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primadly from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. CARLISLE WATER SUPPLY 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 Ddnking Water Hotline or at htte:llwww.epa.oovlsafewaterllead. SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT INFORMATION This water supply obtains its water from the Lake Red Rock sand and gravel of the Alluvial aquifer. The Alluvial aquifer was determined to be highly susceptible to contamination because the characteristics of the aquifer and overlying materials provide little protection from contamination at the land surface. The Alluvial wells will be highly susceptible to surface contaminants such as leaking underground storage tanks, contaminant spills, and excess fertilizer application. A detailed evaluation of your source water was completed by the Iowa Dei0artment of Natural Resources, and is available from the Water Operator at 515-989-0125. CONTACT INFORMATION For questions regarding this information or how you can get involved in decisions regarding the water system, please contact CARLISLE WATER SUPPLY at 515-989-3224.
