           DBPs Sample Results 2nd Qtr. 2024

  

Attached is a review the results of total trihalomethane (TTHM) and haloacetic acid (HAA5) analyses that were performed on water samples collected during the second quarter (April - June) 2024.  The summary compliance chart for each sampling location is provided below.   

  

The TTHM maximum contaminant level is 0.080 mg/L and the HAA5 maximum contaminant level is 0.060 mg/L.  Compliance with the TTHM and HAA5 maximum contaminant levels is based on the four-quarter locational running annual average(s) (LRAA).  The operational evaluation level (OEL) is also calculated on a quarterly basis and compared to the maximum contaminant levels as an early warning sign. 

  

Based on the results, the waterworks is in compliance with the TTHM and HAA5 maximum contaminant levels. 

In addition the waterworks has not exceeded a TTHM or HAA5 operational evaluation level. 

 

Thus, continue routine quarterly TTHM / HAA5 sampling, with your next set due within July 2024.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Danville Field Office.

PRESS RELEASE 

TOWN OF CHATHAM  

16 COURT PL, PO BOX 370 

 

The Water, Sewer, Solid Waste Committee met on April 18, 2024, to discuss the proposed water/sewer Enterprise System budget submission for the Fiscal Year 2024-2025. This Fiscal Year starts on 1 July 2024.  The Committee received information from the Finance Committee that the projected shortfall in water/sewer revenue has decreased from the previously announced $560,000 to $444,179 due to updated revenue numbers.  

Several items were acted on to be forwarded to the Town Council for consideration. 1)The Committee recommended expenditures not to exceed $12000 to replace the 18-year-old water meter for Green Rock Correctional Center. 2)The Committee recommended that the projected revenue shortfall be covered by using existing Enterprise funds and deferring water/sewer revenue to the Town Operations side of the budget. 3)The Committee recommended that the annual proposed 24-25 budget advertisement be broken down on two distinct pages; the Water/Sewer Enterprise budget and the Town Operations budget.  These should be placed side-by-side in the advertisements and announcements.3) The Committee recommended inflationary index increases to water, sewer, and lawn sprinkler rates. If enacted by the Town Council the rates will increase by 3.5% for in town rates, 10% for out-of-town rates, and change from $.oo8/gal to $.01/gal for irrigation meters. The average in-town-bill will increase by $4.53 per quarter if this increase is enacted. 

The Office of Drinking Water (ODW) has evaluated the results of the total organic carbon (TOC) and alkalinity analysis collected for the 4th quarter of 2023. Your chemical results analysis can be found utilizing the Drinking Water Viewer (https://vadwv.gecsws.com/).

 

Compliance with the disinfection byproduct precursors (DBPP) treatment technique is determined quarterly by calculating the running annual average (RAA) of the TOC Removal Ratio. The RAA must be equal to or greater than 1.00. The average TOC Removal Ratio for your waterworks for the past four quarters is 1.41. Therefore, your waterworks is in compliance with the treatment technique for control of disinfection byproducts precursors.
