Thank you for allowing us to provide your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These ~mprovements sometimes require rate structure adjustments. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno- compromised persons, such as, persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426- 4791). "Our public water system, in cooperation with the North Dakota Department of Health. has completed the delineation and contaminant/land use inventory elements of the North Dakota Source Water Protection Program. Based on the information from these elements. the North Dakota Department of Health has determined that our source water is moderately susceptible to potential contaminants.~ The Source Water Assessment Report will be available for viewing by contacting Dennis Larson at 701-284-6399. Please call our office if you have questions. The City of Park River works around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.
