PUBLIC NOTICES

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Spillway Estates Water System Water System Failed to Take Corrective Action Following Identification of a Significant Deficiency
On December 05, 2018 the Louisiana Department of Health and (LDH) performed a detailed inspection and engineering evaluation of our water system called a sanitary survey. During this sanitary survey, they identified one or more significant deficiencies in our system. As our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation. According to EPA’s Ground Water Rule, we were required to correct the deficiency (or deficiencies) or work with the State to develop a plan to correct the deficiency (or deficiencies). However, we failed to correct the deficiency or contact the State before the established deadline and have therefore violated a requirement of the Ground Water Rule.

What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

What does this mean?
This is not an emergency. If it had been an emergency, you would have been notified within 24 hours.
This significant deficiency has the potential to result in lack of proper treatment and oversight of the water system. Inadequately treated or inadequately protected water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches. While we have not detected any evidence of contamination or other health threats related to our source water, we are still committed to correcting the deficiency to eliminate the threat of contamination.

What was done?
Utilities Inc of Louisiana is pleased to inform our customers the deficiency noted has been successfully resolved. Prior to LDH inspection, UIL determined the ground storage tank located on Navajo Road required replacement due to its deteriorating condition.
At the time of inspection, LDH observed the ground storage tank to have corrosion citing this as a significant deficiency. The engineer hired by UIL submitted plans and specifications to LDH and were approved on May 19, 2019.

On September 15, 2020, ground storage tank replacement was completed in addition to other improvements to the water site. These improvements included: 5hp booster station, new station piping, rehabilitation of chlorination equipment and site restoration including an access driveway.

UIL continues to work on improvements to the water system and keep LDH informed of progress being made.

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, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

For more information, please contact: Vicki Spence, UIL Compliance Administrator at 985-893-6646.
