Monitoring Requirements Not Met for Miles Twp Water Authority East

Our water system violated several drinking water standards over the past year.  Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct these situations. 

We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis.  Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards.  During September 2017 we did not sample for TTHM/HAA5. During December 2017 we did not sample for Total Coliform / Distribution Chlorine Residual. Therefore we cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.

What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time.

The table below lists the contaminants we did not properly test for during the last year, how often we are supposed to sample for TTHM/HAA5, Total Coliform and Distribution Chlorine Residual, and how many samples we are supposed to take, how many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date on which follow-up samples were taken.
