IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
GREENVILLE WTP Chemical Monitoring Public Notice

What happened?

Our water system did not meet the requirements of a drinking water rule. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis.  Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water meets health standards.  During the July through September 2018 monitoring period, we did not monitor or test for Error! Reference source not found. and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water at that time. 

 

What should I do?

Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to these contaminants can choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.

What does this mean?

This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What is being done?

We are sampling immediately for the above parameters.

For more information, please contact Robert Reynolds at850-363-6592 or contact the Department of Environmental Protection, Potable Water Section at 904-256-1700.

Incorporated 1907. A town was first established here in 1850 and its post office was given the name of Sandy Ford. But during the Civil War, the place was given the name of “Station Five,” because it was the fifth station from the capital. A women’s sewing circle was organized here to sew for the soldiers in the Confederate Army and the first box of supplies that they sent to the commissary in Richmond was designated as coming from Station Five. The quartermaster wrote the president of the society that packages would have to be given in the name of some town. The ladies met and agreed to call the town Greenville, as a tribute to Mrs. U.M. Roberts, president of the society, who came from Greenville, South Carolina. The Spanish missions of San Miguel de Asylo and San Mateo de Tolapato were both located near the area.
