2018 DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT


2018 Manager’s Letter The South Jordan Water Division is dedicated to providing you safe and clean drinking water. The Safe drinking Water Act of 1996 requires all water suppliers to provide water quality information to their customers annually. Every year South Jordan City publishes an Annual Water Quality Report. This report provides our customers with information about our water system and compliance with all federal and state WATER DIVISION MANAGER water quality requirements. This report is based on findings from the water monitoring period CARY NECAISE January 1, 2018 to December 31,2018. South Jordan City purchases all drinking water from Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, who also performs required water quality tests. Jordan Valley’s water quality data is included in this report. South Jordan is committed to comply with all federal and state rules for water quality and distribution. The City Water Division strives to better our community through prompt and reliable service. This year, the City will be replacing transmission and distribution pipes in an effort to maintain reliable water system infrastructure. It is our goal to continue providing small town, personal service as our community continues to experience growth. If you have any questions about water quality please contact the City at (801) 446-HELP or visit the City’s website at www.sjc.utah.gov.

Did you know?

THE WATER DIVISION WILL INVESTIGATE ANY WATER QUALITY ISSUE FOR FREE.

Odor and Taste This can be caused by a number of different factors, including algae growth in the mountain reservoirs in the late summer, stagnant water during the winter, chlorine levels, etc. Although some of these issues just make the water taste or smell different, always contact the Water Division if you notice a problem. Cloudy or Milky Water This is most often caused by air in the water lines. Fill a glass of water and if it is air it will become clear after 10-15 minutes. If the water remains cloudy or if there is a smell with the cloudiness contact the Water Division immediately. Discolored Water (Pink, Reddish-Brown, or Muddy) This can be caused by natural sediments in the plumbing lines, dirt from a water leak repair, water softener malfunctions or sediments from your water heater. The Water Division will help investigate the cause for free. Contact Travis Lim tlim@sjc.utah.gov (801) 446-HELP

Where does our water come from?

South Jordan Purchases all of the drinking water from Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District whose main water source is the Provo River system which includes Deer Creek reservoir, as well as some ground water sources.

Water Quality

DEFINITIONS

Action Level AL

The concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal

MCLG

The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum Contaminant Level

MCL

mg/L

The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLG as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Milligrams per Liter

ND

Not Detected

NE

None Established

NTU pCi/L PPM

Nepholometric Turbidity Unit A measure of cloudiness of the water. Picocuries Per Liter A measure of radiation Parts Per Million Treatment Technique

TT

ug/L

Micrograms Per Liter

How much Lead and Copper is in the water?

The amount of Lead and Copper were below the Action Level (AL). The range of detected lead was 0.0 - 3.0; the AL for Lead is 15 ppb. The range of detected Copper was 7.8 - 300; the AL for Copper is 1300 ppb.

What is the hardness of the water? The water has a total hardness that ranges from 7-10 grains per gallon. This is considered “hard.�

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. South Jordan city is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead 5

Backflow Prevention Backflow prevention assemblies provide the public water system with protection against contamination or pollution. All sprinkler irrigation systems that are designed to use both the secondary (canal) and culinary water are required to have a physical disconnect, swing joint connection. The swing joint connection makes it impossible for the culinary and secondary water to be used or connected at the same time. South Jordan City provides the annual required test for all compliant residential backflow preventers. We encourage all residents to take advantage of this service provided by the City.
