Public Service Announcements

December 2019

The Clarksville Connected Utilities is a public water supply system subject to regulation under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Those regulations require the notification of customers whenever a violation occurs, and is the basis for this notice.

Only 9 of the required 10 valid bacteriological sample results, were received during April 2019.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets drinking water standards and has determined that the presence of total coliforms is a possible health concern.

The water system did not conduct the required monitoring or obtain valid results for total coliform bacteria during this time period and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of the drinking water at the time.

Failure to meet this requirement does not necessarily mean that the water is unsafe or that alternate sources of water should be used.

The water system has resumed the normal Bacteriological sampling schedule.

Should you have any questions concerning this notice, contact the water system department at 479-754-3148 ask for extension 405 or call the Engineering Section of the Department of Health at 501-661-2623.
