It is peaelbta that lead levels at your home may be higher than at other homes in the community as a result of materiels used in your home'a plumbing. If you are concerned about elevated t0ad levels in your home's water, you may wish to have your water teated and flush your tap for 30 onds to 2 minutes before using the tap water. Additional information is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotlthe (1-800-426- 4791 ). We constantly monitor the water supply for vadous constituents. We have defected radon in the finished water supply in I out of 2 samples tested, There is no federal regulation for radon levels in drinking water.

Possible sources for this Constituent are geological, steel and metal industdea, and fungicide manufacturing, The other oonetitoant tested for was Haloacetic Acids (HAAS). The detected level was 1 .t ppb, the MCL eateblished by the EPA is 60 ppb. HAAh's are dieln- fection by-products formed when chlorine reacts with organics in the water. "All sources of drinking water are s~ to potential contamination by constitoents that are naturally occurring or Is man made. Those constituents can be microbes, organic or inorganic chemicals, or radioactive materials.* All ddnking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contatn at least small amounts of these contaminants, The pr~Nmce of cmttmnlmmta does not ler'lfy Indicate that the water pore a health flak.

Immuno-compromtsed parsons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system d=sorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek acmes about drinking water from their health care providers.
