Taberg Water District Contact Information
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your drinking water, please contact Edward Fall, Jr., Water Operator, at 315-336-6846. We want you to be informed about your drinking water. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled Town Board meetings. The meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7 PM at the Annsville Town Hall (Main Street, Taberg).
Where Does Our Water Come From?
The Taberg Water Districts #1 & 75 purchase 100% of its water from the City of Oneida. (See the City of Oneida Report for additional information on where our water comes from.) Our water systems serve approximately 540 people through 197 service connections.
Are There Contaminants In Our Drinking Water?
In addition to the City of Oneida sample results (see attached City of Oneida report), the Taberg Water District routinely tests your drinking water for coliform bacteria and disinfection residuals. The table presented below depicts which compounds were detected in your drinking water.
What Does This Information Mean?
As you can see by the table, our system had no violations. We have learned through our testing that some contaminants have been detected; however, these contaminants were detected below the level allowed by the State.
Is Our Water System Meeting Other Rules That Govern Operations?
Last year, our system was in general compliance with applicable State drinking water operating, monitoring and reporting requirements. We test for free chlorine residuals on a daily basis. Each month we submit to the Health Department a report with these measurements. Unfortunately, we failed to submit the January2016 report by the 10th of February as required. Once we were made aware of this situation, we immediately forwarded the report. This reporting violation does not pose a threat to the quality of our water supply and does not affect the quality of the water we serve you.
Thank you for allowing us to continue to provide your family with quality drinking water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to address these improvements. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community. Please call our office if you have questions at 315-336-6846.
See Attached City of Oneida Report for additional required reporting, sampling, treatment and water source information.
