Re: Lead contamination of Drinking Water

Due to the recent national news concerning the lead contamination in the Flint Drinking water system, Evergreen Metropolitan District wants to reassure its customers that the District is very aware of the Federal and State mandated Lead and Copper Rule and operates and maintains the drinking water system in a manner that greatly reduces the potential for lead or copper issues to arise. 

Most lead and copper contamination issues are the result of the chemical reaction between the treated drinking water and types of piping systems containing these elements that can be found in older residential and commercial buildings that were built in the early to mid-1900s.

To prevent the Evergreen treated water from being corrosive to the residential and commercial building water pipes, Evergreen Metropolitan District operates and maintains a corrosion control treatment program.  This program consists of continually treating the water with a safe consumable phosphate based chemical as part of the overall water treatment process.  This corrosion control treatment program is certified and approved by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.  The Evergreen Water Treatment operators monitor and document daily the corrosion control process and chemical dosing to ensure the treatment process is performing properly.  Every three years, the District is required to sample from pre-identified residential homes.  The customer is educated on how to take a drinking water sample for lead analysis.  The sample is then picked up by an Evergreen Water Plant operator and transported to a state certified lab for testing.  All analysis for lead is reported to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The last set of Lead and Copper analysis on the system was performed in 2014.  No violations of the lead and copper rule occurred.  The next round of lead and copper sampling is scheduled for 2017.  All water analysis for the District drinking water system is available for the public to review at any time.  The Consumer Confidence Report that is mailed to each customer provides information on detected contaminants found in the EMD drinking water.  The Water Quality Report can also be found by clicking on the Water Quality Report found above.

Additional information on drinking water, including current information on contaminants such as lead, can be found by following the link below.
