The City of Barberton Utilities Department has released its “Consumer Confidence Report” (CCR) for the year 2014.
This annual CCR, required by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), tells you where your water comes from, what our tests show about it, and other things you should know about drinking water.
The report is mailed to all consumers who receive a water bill. If you do not receive a water bill and would like a copy of the report, it is available at the following locations: Barberton Municipal Building Lobby, Barberton Public Library and the Barberton Health Department, or you can call the Water Treatment Plant at (330-848-6744) and request that a copy be mailed to you.
PUBLIC NOTICE - DRINKING WATER WARNING
Monitoring requirements were not met
For Barberton Public Water System
The January 2015 raw and finished water Total Organic Carbon (TOC) sample was taken by City of Barberton personnel and sent by Federal Express to an outside lab who acknowledged receiving the sample, verified by signature through Federal Express tracking. The sample was lost internally at the lab before being an alyzed. These are required samples.
Total organic carbon (TOC) has no health effects. However, total organic carbon provides a medium for the formation of disinfection byproducts. These byproducts include trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Drinking water containing these byproducts in excess of the MCL may lead to adverse health effects, liver or kidney problems, or nervous system effects, and may lead to an increased risk of getting cancer.
THE CITY OF BARBERTON WATER SYSTEM HAS BEEN BELOW THE OHIO EPA MAXIMUM LIMITS FOR THM AND HAA AT ALL LOCATION SINCE THE 4TH QUARTER OF 2014. THIS ENCOMPASSES THE MISSED SAMPLES TIMEFRAME.
What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time. You do not need to boil the water or take other corrective actions.
What is being done?
The City of Barberton will take steps to ensure that adequate monitoring will be performed in the future.
For more information, please contact Terry Palmer at 330-848-6744 Tuesday through Friday 8:00am – 4:00pm or at City of Barberton Water Treatment Plant 3365 Summit RD. Norton, Ohio 44203.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
