Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.  Those with compromised immune systems such as those with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, those who have undergone organ transplants, those with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and infants may be particularly at risk from infections.  These individuals 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 microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline.

Security Issues Noted

In light of the events of September 11, 2001 it is important to remind you that security of our Municipal Utilities System has always been and continues to be of a paramount concern.

As our water supply is derived from aquifers and delivered from a system of wells, access to our water is by nature very difficult.  Any individuals, such as terrorists or others who would seek to violate the safety and security of our system would find that our system is simply not easily accessible.

With security measures in place, and the active participation of our local police force and many other law enforcement agencies, we are fully prepared to maintain our systems integrity and/or quickly respond to any potential violation of it, and bring any potential violator (s) to justice.

In addition, we continue to frequently review and revise our security procedures to meet the needs of our users.  Rest assured, we will continue to do so.
