~ Public Notice ~

Robinson Maneuver Training Center (RMTC) is a public water
system subject to regulation under the federal Safe Drinking
Water Act. Those regulations require the notification of
customers whenever a violation occurs, and is the basis for
this notice. This water system failed to meet the maximum
contaminant level for total coliform in June 2013.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets
drinking water standards and has determined that the
presence of total coliforms is a possible health concern.
Total coliforms are common in the environment and are
generally not harmful themselves. The presence of these
bacteria in drinking water, however, generally is a result
of a problem with water treatment or the pipes which
distribute the water, and indicates that the water may be
contaminated with organisms that can cause disease.
Disease symptoms may include diarrhea, cramps, nausea,
and possibly jaundice, and any associated headaches
and fatigue. These symptoms, however, are not just associated
with disease causing organisms in drinking water,
but also may be caused by a number of factors other than
your drinking water. EPA has set an enforceable drinking
water standard for total coliforms to reduce the risk of
these adverse health effects. Under this standard,
no more than 5 percent of the samples collected during
a month can contain these bacteria, except that systems
collecting fewer than 40 samples per month that have one
total coliform positive sample per month are not violating
the standard. Drinking water which meets this standard
is usually not associated with a health risk from disease
causing bacteria and should be considered safe.

Failure to meet the total coliform standard does not mean that
the water is unsafe or that alternate sources of water should
be used. The water system distribution lines have
been adequately flushed, flushing and compliance sampling procedures have been reviewed, and all required
sampling points have been re-sampled and
in compliance with the
Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR).

Should you have any questions concerning this notice, contact the water system at 501-212-5872 or the Engineering Section of the Department of Health at 501-661-2623.
