TO ALL CUSTOMERS OF THE MAYNARD PUBLIC WATER SYSTEM Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) Drinking Water Update
This is an important notice – please translate it for anyone who does not understand English.
The Maynard Department of Public Works and Town Administrator Kevin Sweet seek to update residents and business owners in the Town of Maynard regarding elevated levels of Total Trihalomenthanes (TTHMs) in the town’s drinking water supply.
The town’s water supply is safe to drink and use. No boil water order has been issued.
Under the revised state Disinfection By-Product Rule Stage 2 requirements, the Town of Maynard’s public water system is required to monitor the drinking water for TTHMs levels on a quarterly basis at four approved locations. A four-quarter running annual average at any location above the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL) for TTHMs of more than 80 ppb is considered out of compliance.
