Clover Hill III Water System – January 2020 Status Report
Our most recent sampling has shown the Clover Hill III water system remains in compliance for Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The most recent calculation of the Locational Running Annual Average (LRAA) is below the federal Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 60 parts per billion (ppb). The LRAA is calculated for each sample site by averaging test results from samples collected in February, May, August, and November of each year.
The current LRAA for HAA5 is 45.5 ppb.
With winter upon us, staff will only be doing extremely limited hydrant flushing and they have removed all of the automatic flushing devices to prevent freezing. Regular flushing will not resume until we start to see warmer temperatures later this spring.
We are still awaiting the planned improvements to the treatment processes at the City of Frederick’s Fishing Creek water source and Lester Dingle Water Treatment Plant. Once complete, this project should result in further reductions in HAA5 concentrations.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we work to address this issue.
For more information, please contact the Frederick County Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management at 301-600-1825.
