The Water We Drink

SOUTHEAST GRANT WATER SYSTEM
Public Water Supply ID: LA1043015

​We are pleased to present to you the Annual Water Quality Report for the year 2019. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of your water and services we deliver to you every day (Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable. Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien). 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(s) are listed below:

Source Name
Source Water Type
WELL 2
Ground Water
WELL 1
Ground Water

​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 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:

Microbial Contaminants - such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.

Inorganic Contaminants - such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.

Pesticides and Herbicides - which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.

Organic Chemical Contaminants – including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.

Radioactive Contaminants – which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

​A Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP) is now available from our office. This plan is an assessment of a delineated area around our listed sources through which contaminants, if present, could migrate and reach our source water. It also includes an inventory of potential sources of contamination within the delineated area, and a determination of the water supply's susceptibility to contamination by the identified potential sources. According to the Source Water Assessment Plan, our water system had a susceptibility rating of 'HIGH'. If you would like to review the Source Water Assessment Plan, please feel free to contact our office.

​In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you have any questions about this report, want to attend any scheduled meetings, or simply want to learn more about your drinking water, please contact Brenda Brown or Judy Brewer at 318-765-3020.

​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. SOUTHEAST GRANT WATER SYSTEM 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 Louisiana Department of Health routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The tables that follow show the results of our monitoring during the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2019. 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 poses a health risk.

​In the tables below, 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 per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/L) – one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000.

Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) – picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water.

Treatment Technique (TT) – an enforceable procedure or level of technological performance which public water systems must follow to ensure control of a contaminant.

Action level (AL) – the concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

Maximum contaminant level (MCL) – the “Maximum Allowed” MCL is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCL’s are set as close to the MCLG’s as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) – the “Goal” is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to human health. MCLG’s allow for a margin of safety.

Maximum residual disinfectant level (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 (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 contaminants.

Level 1 assessment – A study of the water system to identify potential problems and determine (if possible) why total coliform bacteria have been found in our water system.

Level 2 Assessment – A very detailed study of the water system to identify potential problems and determine (if possible) why an E. coli MCL violation has occurred and/or why total coliform bacteria have been found in our water system on multiple occasions.

​During the period covered by this report we had the below noted violations.

​In the tables below, we have shown the regulated contaminants that were detected. Chemical Sampling of our drinking water may not be required on an annual basis; therefore, information provided in this table refers back to the latest year of chemical sampling results. To determine compliance with the primary drinking water standards, the treated water is monitored when a contaminant is elevated in the source water.

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 their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800–426–4791).

There are no additional required health effects notices.

Due to Gov. Edwards Statewide Stay At Home Order today, I may have to decrease the hours I’m in the office.
I will talk to all the Board of Directors tomorrow. If they decide to decrease the hours the office is open I will let everyone know tomorrow.
Booger and I do fall under “essential worker’s”.
I plan on being at the office on Monday’s, Wednesday’s & Friday’s, even if it’s for fewer hours each day.
If anyone needs to talk to me #318-765-3020. Thanks, Brenda

03/19/2020

Boogers new cell phone number 318-487-3325

Due to the Carina Virus, we are asking all members/customers to either mail your payment or put your payment in the drop box.

If you need to talk to Brenda call the office # 318-765-3020. Office hours-Monday, Wednesday, & Friday 8am-1pm.
If I have to run an errand during this time, leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I get back in the office.

We have waived the late fee penalty for March. If you paid your bill after the 10th of March, you will have a credit showing on your next bill.

We are sorry if this causes any inconveniences. We are following the orders of the Governor & Public Service Commissioners office’s. Thank you, Brenda

Everyone on Southeast Grant Water System will be receiving their water bill with a letter about Backflow/Cross Connection Prevention Program, a questionnaire for everyone to fill out and return to the office.
There is also a notice in the Colfax Chronicle about the water system’s non-compliance because of the Backflow/Cross Connection Prevention Program. The reason for the non-compliance is I was late getting these letters out to everyone (past the date that the State gave us).
I was late getting the letters out because we (the Board of Director’s and myself) were trying to learn more about this program the State of Louisiana is making ALL water systems put in place and enforce.
This is a program that had to be put in place. I promise the Board of Director’s didn’t think this up. The State of Louisiana has mandated that ALL water systems have a Backflow/Cross Connection Program or Ordinance in place.
If the members/customers don’t return the questionnaire by March 23, 2020, the water system will have another notice of non-compliance letter from the State.
Thank you, Brenda

Ok people, we all just got our letter about the rate increases, and our ballots in the mail. Please read the letter twice if you have to. I know some of you are just going to skim over it and flip out. Our minimum bill is going to be $31, NOT the $39 that LDH wanted them to charge. If you want change in the system, run for the empty spot on the board of Directors. Also, be sure to vote! Don't gripe and complain about things if you don't vote. I shall be including some pics of the letter with some things highlighted for a visual aide to some of you. READ the WHOLE letter!
