Public Notice for Selkirk Water Supply Corporation

Selkirk Water Customers:

The Public Notice (PN) below, required by the State, closes out the water quality incident from 2012 with our old well at the boat ramp. That well was replaced that same year.  The old well was abandoned and plugged per State guidelines. We have had no water quality issues with either well since 2012.

You do not need to boil your water or obtain alternative water supply (e.g. bottle water) at this time. However if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of drinking water contaminants are available fro  EPA’s Safe Drinking Water hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Corrective Action:

SELKIRK WSC has taken the following actions to return the system to compliance:

Well with violations was replaced in 2012. The old well with the initial violation was abandoned and plugged in 2012. No violations on either of our two current wells since 2012.

TX1610027 SELKIRK WSC
Annual Water Quality Report for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2017

This report is intended to provide you with important information about your drinking water and the efforts made by the water system to provide safe drinking water.

SELKIRK WSC is Ground Water from the Gulf Coast Aquifer

Sources of Drinking Water

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.  As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.  The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk.  More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

–   Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.

–   Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.

–   Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.

–   Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems.

 

–   Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Contaminants may be found in drinking water that may cause taste, color, or odor problems.  These types of problems are not necessarily causes for health concerns.  For more information on taste, odor, or color of drinking water, please contact the system’s business office.

You may be more vulnerable than the general population to certain microbial contaminants, such as Cryptosporidium, in drinking water.  Infants, some elderly, or immunocompromised persons such as those undergoing chemotherapy for cancer; persons who have undergone organ transplants; those who are undergoing treatment with steroids; and people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, can be particularly at risk from infections. You should seek advice about drinking water from your physician or health care providers  Additional guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. We are responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but we cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

 

Information about your Drinking Water

The TCEQ completed an assessment of your source water and results indicated that some of your sources are susceptible to certain contaminants. The sampling requirements for your water system are based on this susceptibility and previous sample data. Any detection of these contaminants may be found in this Consumer Confidence Report. For more information on source water assessments and protection efforts at our system, contact Harley Aaron, (979) 235-7023.

For more information about your sources of water, please refer to the Source Water Assessment Viewer available at the following URL:  http://www.tceq.texas.gov/gis/swaview

Further details about sources and source-water assessments are available in Drinking Water Watch at the following URL:   http://dww2.tceq.texas.gov/DWW/

Water Quality Test Results

Definitions and Abbreviations The following tables contain scientific terms and measures, some of which may require explanation.
Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.
Action Level Goal (ALG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.  ALGs allow for a margin of safety.
Avg: Regulatory compliance with some MCLs are based on running annual average of monthly samples.
Level 1 Assessment:  A Level 1 assessment is a study of the water system to identify potential problems and determine (if possible) why total coliform bacteria have been found in our water system.

 

Water Quality Test Results

Level 2 Assessment:  A Level 2 assessment is a very detailed study of the water system to identify potential problems and determine (if possible) why an E. coli MCL violation has occurred and/or why total coliform bacteria have been found in our water system on multiple occasions.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
MFL million fibers per liter (a measure of asbestos)
mrem: millirems per year (a measure of radiation absorbed by the body)
na: not applicable.
NTU nephelometric turbidity units (a measure of turbidity)
pCi/L picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity)

Selkirk Maintenance Section I, II, and Addition A, Inc./Improvement Committee

Attention Owners:

After the meeting on Sunday (3-4-2018), the Board would like to clarify document language to avoid misunderstandings.

The Selkirk Maintenance Section I, II, and Addition A, Inc.  is a Non-profit corporation registered with the State of Texas. It is governed by our Articles of Incorporation (1992). This document requires nine Board of Directors (three from each section) to be elected and have the power to “receive and maintain funds for the operating of the maintenance and improvement of the subdivision.” The three sections also have governing Deed Restrictions (est. in the 1970s) which; requires three members from each section elected and having the same powers recorded. This committee is called the “Improvement Committee”. Over the years with many different Boards elected, the wording for the “Board of Directors” and “Improvement Committee” has become interchangeable BUT represents the same entity with the same governing powers. This Board/Committee, as well as past Boards, has striven vigorously to follow the rules of both governing documents as our fiduciary duty requires. We ALL (Board and Owners) continue to try to work together for the betterment of the subdivision. The 2018 additional fee requested to offset legal fees was generously successful. Approximately 128 owners contributed and a few owners donated more. Thank you so much for your desire to keep the HOA is good standing. Please feel welcome to attend the quarterly meetings. The next scheduled meeting is Sunday, June 10. Notice will be posted on this site.

Again, thank you so much for your donations!!!!

Sincerely,

Board of Directors for Selkirk Maintenance Section I, II, Add. A, Inc./Improvement Committee
