HEALTH  INFORMATION 

DRINKING WATER INCLUDING BOTTLED WATER, MAY REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO CONTAIN AT LEAST SMALL AMOUNTS OF SOME CONTAMINANTS. THE PRESENCE OF CONTAMINANTS DO NOT NECESSARILY INDICATE THAT THE WATER POSES A HEALTH RISK.  MORE INFORMATION ABOUT CONTAMINANTS AND POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS CAN BE OBTAINED BY CALLING  THE  EPA’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 ELDERLY AND INFANTS CAN BE PARTICULARLY AT RISK FROM INFECTIONS. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD SEEK ADVICE ABOUT DRINKING WATER FROM THEIR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER. EPA/CDC GUIDELINES ON APPROPRIATE MEANS TO LESSEN THE RISK OF INFECTION BY CRYTOSPORIDIUM  AND OTHER MICROBIAL CONTAMINANTS ARE AVAILABLE  FROM THE SAFE DRINKING WATER HOTLINE (800-426-4791).  THE SOURCES OF DRINKING WATER (BOTH TAP 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 HUMAN ACTIVITY.

CONTAMINANTS  THAT MAY BE PRESENT IN SOURCE WATER INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

MICROBIAL CONTAMINANTS SUCH AS VIRUSES AND BACTERIA, THAT 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 STORM 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 STORM WATER RUNOFF AND RESIDENTIAL USES.

ORGANIC CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS, INCLUDING SYNTHETIC AND VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS, WHICH ARE BY-PRODUCTS OF INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES AND PETROLEUM PRODUCTION AND CANALS COME FROM GAS STATIONS, URBAN STORM WATER RUNOFF AND SEPTIC SYSTEMS.

RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINANTS, WHICH CAN BE NATURALLY OCCURRING OR BE THE RESULT OF OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION AND MINING ACTIVITIES.

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 RINGGOLD WATER TREATMENT PLANT 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.

IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT TAP WATER IS SAFE TO DRINK, EPA PRESCRIBES REGULATIONS THAT 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.

CUSTOMERS OF THE RINGGOLD WATER SYSTEM MAY ADDRESS THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT THEIR WATER SYSTEM BY ATTENDING RINGGOLD CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS WHICH ARE HELD REGULARLY ON THE SECOND AND FOURTH MONDAY OF EACH MONTH.

YOU MAY OBTAIN A COPY OF THIS REPORT AT THE RINGGOLD CITY HALL LOCATED AT 150 TENNESSEE STREET, RINGGOLD, GEORGIA 30736 DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT MR.
