Consumer Confidence Report
Our Consumer Confidence Report is designed to inform you about the water quality and services provided by the Lake Mills Water Department. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. Our water source is made up of four (4) ground water wells. These wells draw from a sandstone aquifer approximately 800 to 900 feet deep.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Superintendent Paul Hermanson at (920) 648-4026.
Lake Mills Light & Water routinely monitors for constituents in drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The current report shows the result of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2011.
“All sources of drinking water are subject to potential contamination by constituents that are naturally occurring or is man made. Those constituents can be microbes, organic or inorganic chemicals, or radioactive materials.”
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791.
MCL’s are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect.
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 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. 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 at (800) 426-4791.
