The purpose of this report is to advance constma' understanding of drinking water and heighten awm-eness of the need to protect precious water resources. Source of Water The City of Westbrook provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: two wells ranging from 428 to 588 feet deep, that draw water from the Dakota aquifer. The Minmota Department of Health has determined that one or more sources of your drinking water is Ide to contamination. If you wish to obtain the entire source water asstm, axt regarding your drinking water, please call 651-215-0800 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) during normal business hours Also, you can view it on line at Call  ffyou have questions about the City of Westbrook drinking water or would hire information about opportunities for public participation in decisiom that may affect the quality of the water'. Results of Monitoring No coinmina were detected at levels that violated federal drinking water standards. However, some contamim were detected in trace amounts that were below legal limits. The table that follows shows the eontamimam that were detected in trace mounts last year. (Some contaminants we sampled less frequently than once a year; as a result, not all contaminants were sampled for in 2003. ffany of these comanmmas were detected the last time they were smnpled for, they are included in the table along with the date that the deugtion occurred) Key to abu-ons: M Corot Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which' thac is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL--Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest levd of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs ate set an close to the MCLOs as feast'ble using the best available treatngnt technology. AL,-Action Level: The concent_mtion of a contain/ham which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirement which a water system must follow. 90th Pea'centile Level-This is the value obtained after disregarding 10 percent of the sanles taken that had the highest levels. (For example, in a situation in which 10 samples were taken, the 90th percentile level it detmnined by disregarding the highest result, which represents 10 percent of the sanles.) Note: In situations in which only 5 samples are taken, the average of the two with the highest levels is taken to the 90th percentile level. pCi/l--laicori per liter (a measure of radioactivity). piMp-Pints per billion, which can also be exprsed as micrograms per liter (ug/1). ppm-Pms per million, which can also be expr.'d as millisratm per liter (rag/l). rid--No Detection.

Radon is a rnd/oaetive gas which is naturally occurring in some groundwater. It poses a lung when gas is released from water into air (as occurs during showering, bathing, or washing dishes or clothes) and a stomach cancer risk when it is ingested. Because radon i, indoor air poses a much ladth risk than radon in drinking water, an Alternative Max/mum Contt Level picoCuri per liter may apply in states that have adopted an Indoor Air Program, bomcowne schools, and cotraramities to reduce the radon threat from indoor air. For states such a program, the Maximem Contaminant Level (MCL) of 300 pCVI may apply.

Compliance with National Pdmary Drinking Water Regulations The sources of drinking water (both tap wat and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, pondS, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or-through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive rnatal, and can pick up resulting from the presence of animals or from human ativity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatw plants, septic systems, aSmulu livestock operations, and wildlife. Inorganic contaminanta, suda as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring urban stomawatex runoll industrial or do wastewater discharges, oil and gas ' or farming.
