PUBLIC/LEGAL NOTICES

*****Important Information About Your Drinking Water****
Magnolia Water UOC – Spring Creek Water System, PWS# LA1049028
Failure to Distribute and/or Certify Public Notice

Spring Creek Water System, while under previous ownership, was in violation of the requirements indicated below. The violation require notification to the public. Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have the right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation.

What Happened?

The Spring Creek Subdivision Water System is currently in violation of the maximum contaminant
level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids as set forth by the State [Part XII of the
Louisiana State Sanitary Code (LAC 51:XIl) and the Federal Primary Drinking Water Regulations (40 CFR Part 141).
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) set drinking water standard and requires the disinfection of drinking water. Where disinfection is used in the treatment of drinking water, disinfectants combine with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter present in water to form chemicals called disinfection
byproducts (DBPs). EPA and LDH set standards for controlling the levels of disinfectants and DBPs in drinking water, including trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acid (HAAs). 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 HAA5 in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

In December 1998, EPA set enforceable drinking water standards for TTHMs at 80 parts per billion
(ppb) and for HAA5 at 60 parts per billion (ppb) to reduce the risk of cancer or other adverse
health effects. Compliance with the TTHMs and HAA5 standards are determined by calculating a
locational running annual average (LRAA) of quarterly TTHMs and HAA5 sample results.
Compliance calculations performed for the first quarter of 2022 show that the system’s current
TTHMs LRAA is 89 ppb at DBP (disinfection byproduct) 03 – POC #l 518 COLBY JEAN RD. The
system’s current HAA5 LRAAs are 68 ppb at DBP02- POC#4 299 SANDY POINT DR and 81 ppb at
DBP03- POC #l 518 COLBY JEAN RD; thus, the system is currently in violation of the TTHMs and
HAA5 standards.

What is being done?

Central States Water Resources Louisiana (CSWR-LA) purchased the facility in July 2022 and
personnel are working to correct the problem. CSWR-LA will continue to work with LDH to ensure compliance with the TTHMs and HAA5 standards accordance with State and Federal requirements.

This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. EPA and LDH
do not consider this violation to have any serious adverse health effects on human health as a result of short-term exposure; however, continued long-term exposure to TTHMs and HAAS levels above the standard (e.g., 20 years of exposure) has the potential to have serious adverse effects on human health.

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.

Magnolia Water UOC is committed to bringing our customers safe, reliable water services and will continue to work with the LDH to carry out this commitment.

For more information, please contact Magnolia Water at 1-855-643-8152.
