Annual Water Quality Consumer Confidence Report 2020
To Our Valued Customers:
The enclosed information is a report of the quality and laboratory analysis of the drinking water that we delivered to you over the calendar year of 2020. The Talmont Resort Improvement District (TRID) wishes to provide you, the customer, with as much information about your water as we possibly can. On page two you will find a table containing all detected contaminants in the water, lead and copper sampling results, and health effect language for various contaminants.
While TRID water is classified as groundwater which comes from wells and springs deep within the earth, it is important for you to understand all potential sources of drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants doesn’t necessarily indicate that water possesses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-4791). 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. USEPA/Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-4791).
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
- Microbial contaminants such as viruses and bacteria that may come from sewer plants, septic systems and wildlife.
- Inorganic contaminants such as salts and metals that can be naturally occurring or result from stormwater runoff.
- Pesticides and Herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as stormwater runoff and residential
- Organic chemical contaminants including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals that may be byproducts of industrial processes, gas stations, stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
- Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of mining activities.
In order to insure that tap water is safe to drink, USEPA and the California Division of Drinking Water, State Water Resources Control Board prescribe regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department regulations also establish limits for possible contaminants in bottled water that must provide the same protection for public health.
Should you have any questions or for any additional information please call Rick Dewante, at (530) 583-3938, or the USEPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791. For general district information, expressing your views, or participating in the decision making process of the TRID you are welcome to submit written suggestions or comments to our office at P.O. Box 1294, Tahoe City, CA 96145.
Where does your water come from?
All of the drinking water supplied to the Talmont Resort Improvement District’s Water System is classified as groundwater. Two wells located on Washoe Way drilled approximately 250 ft. deep into the ground provide clean, high quality water that consistently meets all standards with no treatment. No chlorine is added to TRID well water.
