IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
The City of Kenmare did not meet monitoring/reporting requirements for chlorine/chloramine residuals.
July 22, 2022
The City of Kenmare is required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether our drinking water meets health standards. Records show that the City of Kenmare did not collect/report the required number of chlorine/chloramine residual samples that were to be taken at the same time and location as total coliform samples for April – June 2022; and therefore, cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.
The City of Kenmare regrets that this error in meeting monitoring/reporting requirements of the Stage 2 Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule occurred. It is recognized that a complete monitoring program is of great value in making certain that safe drinking water is provided to all consumers. Steps have been taken to ensure that adequate monitoring/reporting will be performed in the future as reminders have been scheduled and noted so future samples are not delinquent or missed.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, school, and businesses). There is nothing you need to do at this time; however, as our customer you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation.
