MONITORING VIOLATION OF THE WATER TESTING SCHEDULE & MRDL REPORTING VIOLATION
Facility Name: MINGO WATER DEPARTMENT PWSID#: 5052087
Date: October 6th, 2022
Our water system violated some 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, the Mingo Water Department Public Water Supply 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 July, 2022 we did not monitor or test during that month for Coliform Bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time. The Mingo Water Supply is required by state and federal regulations to submit a monthly report summarizing the disinfectant levels found in the drinking water. This monthly summary is required to be submitted to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to report whether or not the maximum residual disinfectant level of 4.0 mg/L of total chlorine in the drinking water was exceeded during the previous 12 months. Chlorine is beneficial at low levels to control microbes, such as Coliform bacteria, but may have adverse health risks at excessive levels. The Mingo Water Supply regrets its failure to report the Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level in July 2022, and will work to make sure that the required information is submitted in the near future.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? There is nothing you need to do at this time.
WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT IS BEING DONE? We completed the Coliform Bacteria test in the month of August 2022 and are now back in compliance. This public notification shall be forwarded to the Iowa DNR Water Supply Operations. At no time does the City of Mingo feel that the public was ever at a risk with the drinking water. For more information please contact City Hall at 641-363-4441.
Looking for a new home? Look no further, Blue Serenity Home Builders is ready to build your dream home on one of the remaining lots available in Morning Sun Addition here in Mingo!! For more information contact Sue Sutton-Ludwig at Remax Concepts 515-250-3126.
