BOIL WATER ADVISORY LIFTED

CITY OF SUMMERVILLE WATER CUSTOMERS

The boil water advisory issued on August 20, 2020, has been lifted for the City of Summerville Customers. All affected service addresses have been cleared.

Please be aware all City of Summerville Customers are still under the PFOA/PFOS Health Advisory. 

Information Regarding the PFOA/PFOS Health Advisory

On January 30, 2020, sample results came back showing combined levels of PFOA and PFOS in the finished water from the Raccoon Creek treatment plant of 98 parts per trillion, which is above the U.S. EPA Health Advisory Level. In addition, combined levels of PFOA and PFOS in the Goodwin Hill Tank were found to be 92 parts per trillion.

More detailed information can be found at https://www.summervillega.org/water-advisory and also at https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and-drinking-water/drinking-water-health-advisories-pfoa-and-pfos

Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and infants are most sensitive to these chemicals and can reduce their potential risk by not consuming water from the City of Summerville public water system. In an abundance of caution, until further notice, these groups may want to consider using water from another source for consumption purposes. Recommendations for these sensitive groups include:

  • USE BOTTLED WATER FOR DRINKING AND COOKING OF FOODS THAT ABSORB WATER (LIKE PASTA).
  • USE FORMULA THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE ADDING WATER OR USE BOTTLED WATER INTENDED FOR INFANTS TO MAKE FORMULA.

The water can be used for washing foods, brushing teeth, bathing and showering, provided that care is taken to avoid swallowing water during those activities.
