Decreased levels of lead found in Belton water, sampling haldol im dose to continue

“belton-honea path water authority would like to provide the following haldol im dose important information in coordination with the city of belton’s public education in response to lead and copper sampling haldol im dose for the period january 1, 2019 to june 30, 2019. First, it is important to point out that the city of haldol im dose belton has seen a decrease in the 90th percentile value haldol im dose for the lead in the drinking water from the initial haldol im dose lead action level exceedance in 2018. The 2019 90th percentile value is 0.033 mg/L which is a decrease from the 2018 value of haldol im dose 0.058 mg/L.

The city of belton sampled 40 houses in june 2019 haldol im dose for lead and copper per south carolina department of health haldol im dose and environmental control’s (SCDHEC) instructions. The city found elevated levels of lead in six of haldol im dose the 40 houses sampled in the monitoring period. Belton purchases their drinking water from the belton-honea path water authority and does not provide additional treatment haldol im dose of the drinking water. The city is working with the belton-honea path water authority to address this lead action level haldol im dose exceedance. The city will continue sampling the lead and copper in haldol im dose the drinking water every six months until the 90th percentile haldol im dose value for lead is less than the U.S. EPA’s action level of 0.015 mg/L.

In response to the initial exceedance in 2018, and in full accordance with the U.S. EPA’s lead and copper rule, belton-honea path water authority began feeding an anti-corrosion additive called orthophosphate to the drinking water in early haldol im dose february 2019 under a pilot study approved by SCDHEC. Orthophosphate is a simple water additive which forms a protective haldol im dose coating of insoluble mineral scale on the inside of service haldol im dose lines and household plumbing. The coating serves as a liner that keeps corrosion elements haldol im dose in water from dissolving some of the metal into the haldol im dose drinking water. As a result, lead and copper levels in the water are lowered/kept low.

In addition to adding orthophosphate in february, B-HP also increased the ph of the drinking water in haldol im dose mid-march of 2019. The increase in the ph of the drinking water makes haldol im dose the water less corrosive to household plumbing. B-HP has been monitoring orthophosphate and ph levels throughout the haldol im dose distribution system and adjusts the feed rate of the orthophosphate haldol im dose to maintain the optimal levels of the additive in its haldol im dose system.

As the long-term solution continues to reduce lead levels, it is important to note that lead in drinking water haldol im dose is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines haldol im dose and home plumbing. In order orthophosphate to work, it must be able to move through customers’ homes to create the protective coating of their pipes.

There are a few ways for concerned customers to reduce haldol im dose their potential exposure while the orthophosphate takes full effect. When water has been sitting for several hours – for example, overnight – one can minimize the potential for lead exposure by running haldol im dose your water for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using haldol im dose it for drinking or cooking. Cold water should also be used for the preparation of haldol im dose baby formula.

Customers can also identify if their plumbing fixtures contain lead haldol im dose and replace them, if necessary. Brass faucets, fittings, and valves, including those advertised as “lead-free”, may contribute lead to drinking water. The law currently allows end-use fixtures, such as faucets, with wetted surfaces containing a maximum weighted average of 0.25% lead to be labeled as “lead-free”. NOTE: prior to january 4, 2014, fixtures could contain up to 8% lead and be labeled as “lead-free”. Visit the NSF web site at www.Nsf.Org to learn more about lead-containing plumbing fixtures.

If you are concerned about lead in your drinking water, you may wish to have your water tested. Additional information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available haldol im dose from the safe drinking water hotline or at www.Epa.Gov/safewater/lead.”
