Este informe contiene informaci6n muy importante sobre su agua potable. Traduzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this situation is not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

A routine drinking water inspection conducted on 03/16/2022 by the state drinking water program identified the following violations that may pose a risk to public health.

Identified Violation Date Correction Is Required Steps We Are Taking
F318-Management Periodic Tank Inspections not Performed or Documented 07/14/2022 Periodic Storage tank inspection was not performed. Violation occurred on March 16, 2022. Tank inspection was performed on 04/21/2022.
  • Inadequately treated or inadequately protected water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.
  • Failure to perform the required start-up procedures prior to serving water to the public has the potential to distribute contaminated water. When our system shuts down operation, the lack of pressure in our pipes can allow the entry of bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms into the drinking water. By performing start-up procedures such as flushing the pipes, disinfecting the water, and collecting a coliform bacteria sample before we open, we can be sure that we are providing you with safe water.
  • Inadequately maintained storage tanks, identified through inspections, may allow contaminants or disease-causing organisms to enter the drinking water, which can cause diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.
  • Uncontrolled cross connections can lead to a back pressure or siphonage event that may allow contaminants or disease-causing organisms to enter the drinking water, which can cause diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches.

What does this mean? What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

We anticipate resolving the problem by 04/21/2022. For more information, please contact Van Brown at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 17194385590, or Po Box 8 Eads CO 81036.

*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.*

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Our water system recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this situation is not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

A routine drinking water inspection conducted on 03/16/2022 by the state drinking water program identified the following violations that may pose a risk to public health.

Identified Violation Date Correction is Required Steps We Are Taking
F330-Management Storage Tank Inspection Plan (T3) 07/14/2022 The tank inspection plan was overlooked at the sanitary survey on 02/15/2022. The plan has been in place since 4/1/2016.
M613-Management Failure to Complete an Annual Backflow Report 07/14/2022 The annual report has been completed and submitted to the state. The report was completed on 04/19/2022.

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 the inspection it was identified that we did not complete all monitoring/testing, were not monitoring correctly, or were monitoring at an inappropriate location. Therefore we cannot be sure of the drinking water quality during that time.

What does this mean? What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

We anticipate resolving the problem by 04/21/2022. For more information, please contact Van Brown at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 17194385590, or Po Box 8 Eads CO 81036.
