     2017 Consumer Confidence Report on Your Public Water is Available

The annual public water quality report on Kilmarnock’s water system is now available. Click here for the complete 2017 annual water quality report or come by the Town Hall at 1 North Main Street to pick up a copy.

The quality of your drinking water must meet state and federal requirements administered by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). Each year, the Department of Health requires water system providers to report to the public on the quality of their drinking water. 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. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
All drinking water, including bottled drinking 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.

WHAT DO THE RESULTS SHOW? All identified contaminants are within the limits established by the Virginia Dept. of Health. No items require actions to be taken.

There is an alert about your drinking water and a cosmetic dental problem that might affect children under nine years of age. At low levels, fluoride can help prevent. Cavities, but children drinking water containing more than 2 milligrams per liter (mg/l) of fluoride may develop cosmetic discoloration of their permanent teeth (dental fluorosis). The drinking water provided by your community water system had a fluoride concentration of 3.09 mg/l . Dental fluorosis in its moderate or severe forms may result in a brown staining and or pitting of the permanent teeth. This problem occurs only in developing teeth, before they erupt from the gums. Children under nine should be provided with alternative sources of drinking water or water that has been treated to remove the fluoride to avoid the possibility of staining and pitting of their permanent teeth. You may also want to contact your dentist about proper use by young children of fluoride-containing products. Older children and adults may safely drink the water.
