G E N E R A L I N F O R M A T I O N
As water fravels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Substances (referred to as contaminants) in source water may come from septic systems,
discharges from domestic or industrial wastewater treatment facilities, agricultural and farming activities, urban storm water runoff, residential uses, and many other types of activities. Water from surface sources is treated to make it drinkable while groundwater may or may not have any treatment.
Al l drinking water, including bottled drinking 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. More information 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. Immune-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 microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
S O U R C E S AND T R E A T M E N T OF YOUR DRINKING W A T E R
For calendar year 2015 your drinking water came from groundwater and groundwater under the influence of surface water obtained from six
drilled wells. Water is disfributed throughout Town by a booster pump station, one storage tank and variously sized distribution piping.
Treatment of Wells 1 and 6 consists of chlorination. As water is pumped from the wells, a chlorine solution is injected into a combined well discharge line to disinfect the water prior to distribution.
Treatment of Wells 2, 4, 8, and the Shenandoah Valley Academy (SVA) Well consist of membrane filtration and chlorination. Water pumped
from the wells passes through a basket strainer to pretreat the water prior to membrane filtration and chlorination. The membrane filfration eliminates turbidity and bacteria from the water while chlorination is used to disinfect the water prior to distribution.
