2018 Water Quality Report for Village of Almont

this report please contact your local water department at (810)798-8528.
• Contaminants and their presence in water: Drinking Water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expect-
ed to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate
that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by
calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
• Vulnerability of sub-populations: Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than
the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons
who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems 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. EPA/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 (800-426-4791).
• Sources of drinking water: The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes,
streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. Our water comes from 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, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife.
— Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
— Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture and residential uses.
— Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and
mining activities.
— Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products
of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff,
and septic systems.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain con-
taminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water which provide the same protection for public health.

Water Quality Data

The table below lists all the drinking water contaminants that we detected during the 2018 calendar year. The pres-
ence of these contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. Unless otherwise
noted, the data presented in this table is from testing done January 1 – December 31, 2018. The State allows us to
monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not
expected to vary significantly from year to year. All of the data is representative of the water quality, but some are more
than one year old.
Terms and abbreviations used below:
• Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
• Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs
are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
• Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL): The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
• Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG): means the level of a drinking water disinfectant below
which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants
to control microbial contaminants.
• N/A: Not applicable ND: not detectable at testing limit ppb: parts per billion or micrograms per liter ppm: parts
per million or milligrams per liter pCi/l: picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity).
• Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other
requirements that a water system must follow.

Stand by Well # 3 ‘’ Saint Clair Street’’, used for emergencies only

Sodium is not a regulated contaminant.
90 percent of the samples collected were at or below the level reported for our water.

Information about lead: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for
pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated
with service lines and home plumbing. The Village of Almont is responsible for providing high quality drinking water,
but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several
hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using
water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested.
Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from
the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at

Monitoring and Reporting to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Requirements: The State of
Michigan and the U.S. EPA require us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. We met all the monitoring
and reporting requirements for 2018.

We will update this report annually and will keep you informed of any problems that may occur throughout the year,
as they happen. Copies are available at Village offices and published in the tri City Times and available on the Villages
web site and Facebook Page This report will not be sent to you.
