Levels of TTHM above Drinking Water Standards

Our water system recently violated the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TTHM. The average level of TTHM over the last four quarters was 0.085 mg/L. The standard for TTHM is 0.080 mg/L.

What should I do?

  • You do not need to use an alternative (e.g. bottled) water supply. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.


What does this mean?

The levels detected do not pose an immediate risk to your health. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

What is being done?

We are investigating and taking the following necessary steps:

We are required to complete a Disinfection Byproducts Operational Evaluation Report.  This report will help indicate where we can make changes to the water turnover rates and plant operation settings during warm weather months to combat the higher levels of TTHMs.
