March 14 2016 Columbus Water System is in Good Shape Columbus Water Works Vice President of Information Security and Environmental Services Vic Burchfield was interviewed by WXTX Fox 54 news about Columbus Water Works water treatment processes used to ensure safe and quality drinking water At our North Columbus Water Resource Facility water undergoes an extensive treatment process to meet the Environmental Protection Agency EPA standards for clean drinking water The water is withdrawn from the Chattahoochee River and moved through a series of steps in which cloudiness is reduced to produce high quality drinking water All chemical contaminants are rigorously assessed to make sure they are in compliance with the EPA s requirements for safe drinking water and thoroughly tested before reaching the homes of our community In calendar year 2015 CWW won 27 prestigious awards at the state local and national level in the areas of environmental stewardship operational planning management water quality monitoring safety and financial operations Watch our interview with WXTX to learn more about our water treatment process Posted By Columbus Water Works At 12 27 PM Comments 0 Wednesday

By Columbus Water Works At 9 33 AM Comments 0 Friday February 12 2016 Frequently Asked Questions about Lead in Drinking Water How does lead enter into the drinking water supply Lead enters drinking water primarily as a result of corrosion or the erosion of materials in the water distribution system and household plumbing which contain lead Water that is not properly chemically balanced will cause the piping in the distribution system and home plumbing to corrode or rust and absorb metal such as lead into the water Adequate corrosion control provided during the treatment of the water seals the inside of the piping preventing the corrosion from occurring What are potential health effects from lead Lead poisoning often shows no symptoms however signs such as irritability weight loss vomiting constipation or stomach pain could occur Young children and pregnant women are at the greatest risk even from short term exposure Is Columbus Water Works CWW water safe to drink and use Yes our water meets all regulatory mandates CWW has never had a violation of the EPA Lead and Copper regulations How does CWW ensure the water delivered to customers does not contain lead Columbus Water Works has a long history of providing sound and reliable corrosion control to the drinking water provided to the residents of Columbus and Fort Benning As part of corrosion control and inspection program we conduct regularly scheduled lead and copper testing in accordance with the Lead and Copper Rule LCR established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency USEPA Adequate corrosion control provided during the treatment of the water seals the inside of the piping preventing the corrosion from occurring The results of our testing have indicated that lead has not been detected in the treated water leaving the water treatment plant Another important factor is that CWW does not have lead service lines Lead service lines were more commonly used in the northern states in the late 1800s and early 1900s The primary potential source of lead in Columbus is from old lead based solder used in the joints of residential copper plumbing Corrosion control reduces the opportunity for this lead to leach into the water within the home As reported in CWW s most recent Water Quality Report to our customers CWW s water is safe and the lead detected in home plumbing meets the requirements of the EPA Lead and Copper regulations How can I find out more Test results for regulated contaminants that have been detected in the treated water and the level at which they were found for the preceding calendar year are published annually in our Water Quality Report Consumer Confidence Report which is distributed by mail to all our customers To view a copy of this report click here Still have questions Click here for more information Posted By Columbus Water Works At 2 47 PM Comments 0 Friday February 05 2016 Columbus Water Works Response to the Water Crisis in Flint Michigan The City of Flint Michigan has been in the news recently regarding lead contamination in their drinking water In response to customer concerns Columbus Water Works CWW is committed to providing you with timely and accurate information particularly in regards to the safety and quality of our water According to published reports there were two major factors which contributed to the crisis in Flint Michigan the lack of adequate corrosion control treatment and the presence of lead service lines and partial lead service lines within the water distribution system As per CWW in regards to the quality of drinking water in Columbus our customers can rest assured that all is well Unlike the City of Flint there are no lead service lines in the CWW system and corrosion control is effective and monitored closely As a component of our corrosion control inspection and treatment program CWW s compliance with the EPA s lead and copper rule has remained within regulatory limits since analysis began in 1992 Effective corrosion control is essential for good water quality and CWW balances the water chemistry consistently around the clock three times more often than standard practice Additionally CWW performs testing quarterly to measure metal corrosion rates to confirm that corrosion control is at the optimum level As reported in CWW s most recent Annual Water Quality Report mailed to all customers water is tested at the customer s tap and these tests show that the water is safe and meets EPA s lead and copper regulations The Water Quality Report also contains general information about lead in drinking water To view the 2014 Water Quality Report click here Posted By Columbus Water Works At 12 46 PM Comments 0 Wednesday January 27 2016 What s Your Water Really Worth Every day millions of people turn on their faucets but give little thought to the water that streams out We drink it bathe in it swim in it and cook with it But have you thought about how much water is required to produce the things used in your daily life Almost every manufacturing process from clothes to cars to food to computers all depend on water and a lot of it Many people believe that bottled water is a better choice than tap water but did you know that nearly every element of the public water treatment and delivery processes are regulated by the state and federal governments to ensure a safe quality drinking water These same standards are not required for bottled water Why spend more than you need to on necessities like water Let s compare the costs Where would we be without tap water How would we clean fruits and veggies dishes and clothes water plants landscapes or wash our cars Where would we shower or brush our teeth How would we flush our toilets How many businesses would have to suspend operations or relocate entirely How would our Institutions from hospitals to firehouses to schools function You simply cannot beat the price on a service that delivers public health fire protection economic development and quality of life Posted By Columbus Water Works At 2 03 PM Comments 0 Thursday January 14 2016 VICTORY DRIVE TO REOPEN Victory Drive will reopen to all traffic this evening Thursday January 14 2016 by 8 00 p m following the completion of emergency sewer main repair work by the Columbus Water Works The road was closed on January 3 2016 after a large sanitary sewer main collapsed on Victory Drive in the east bound lane Thank you for your patience and understanding while this work was being completed Posted By Columbus Water Works At 7 22 PM Comments 0 Tuesday December 29 2015 News Release A FLOODING STATUS UPDATE FOR CUSTOMERS OF COLUMBUS WATER WORKS The extreme rainfall has been challenging for Columbus Water Works CWW The flood waters overwhelmed the sanitary sewer collection system causing twelve overflows These have all been reported to the Environmental Protection Division EPD There have been several backups into homes as well CWW continues to work with our insurance claims adjuster and property owners to resolve these issues As the river and creeks levels recede CWW staff will inspect sewer lines that are vulnerable to aggressive erosion to determine damages if any The South Columbus Water Resources Facility SCWRF the wastewater plant was flooded The river level was so high that the gravity flow through the plant was impeded and the effluent sampler was submerged Staff had to access the plant via boat There was some leakage into the waterproof buildings Staff are making assessments of the damages which appear minimal at this time Due to excellent response by the plant staff the biological processes were hopefully protected allowing the plant to be quickly restored to operating conditions The plant is operational It will take several days pending laboratory analysis to determine if the plant has been restored to permit compliance The muddy river water stressed the North Columbus Water Resources Facility NCWRF the drinking water treatment plant in removing turbidity The plant experienced some mechanical failures even with redundancy that impeded the alum and lime feed systems that cause the muddy particles to settle out As a result of the mechanical failure higher than normal levels of alum passed through the filters into the distribution system The disinfection process was not impacted and chlorine residual testing leaving the plant and in the distribution system indicate effective disinfection The mechanical problems have been corrected and water production was restored to its high quality on Dec 26th The drinking water is safe but cloudier than normal The Fort Benning water plant was off line during the event and was not impacted CWW is flushing the system based on customer calls It may take a couple of days for the water to pass on through to the outer reaches of the distribution system If you continue to have cloudy tap water please contact Columbus Water Works at 706 649 3400 and crews will be dispatched to flush the system Columbus Water Works has been in contact with the EPD in regards to SSOs the flooding of the wastewater plant and the cloudy drinking water There will be a public notice required by the EPD in regards to the cloudy drinking water We are awaiting their reply and will provide the necessary notification within the mandated 30 day period I am extremely grateful to all of the Columbus Water Works team that worked many unscheduled hours during the Christmas holiday When they had planned to be with their family and friends they had to adjust their priorities in order to protect and restore water and sewer services to the Columbus Water Works customers said Steve Davis President Columbus Water Works Posted By Columbus Water Works At 6 22 PM Comments 0 Monday December 28 2015 Columbus Water Works Public Notification Due to recent heavy rains our Columbus water treatment plant experienced very high levels of turbidity cloudiness in our source water which is pumped from Lake Oliver During this stressed condition on December 25th 26th the water treatment plant also experienced malfunctions in the equipment used to feed Alum and Lime that settle the turbidity cloudiness out of the water As a result four turbidity readings on the filtered water were above the standard set by the EPA On finished water leaving the plant temporary discoloration was caused by an imbalance of treatment chemicals primarily the Alum and Lime which are mineral based and commonly used in drinking water treatment Chlorine disinfection was maintained throughout this period to eliminate bacteria The equipment malfunctions were repaired and normal plant treatment operation restored by 11 30 PM on December 26th Columbus Water Works began systematically flushing the discolored water out of the distribution system However some discoloration may remain in areas of the distribution system for the next few days Although the water is safe to drink if you do experience discoloration try flushing for a few minutes If the water does not clear within a few minutes please contact Columbus Water Works at 706 649 3400 and crews will be dispatched to your area to flush Columbus Water Works apologizes for this inconvenience and we thank you for your patience Posted By Columbus Water Works At 5 30 PM Comments 0 Friday December 25 2015
