The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) in compliance with federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements has recently released data on the quality of the College's drinking water and the systems which deliver it. The information is included as part of the Community Water Supply Systems program and is contained in the Consumer Confidence Reports (CCRs), required by Federal Regulations. The CCR for this past year is now available for review and has been posted throughout the campus on bulletin boards in residence halls and in other public locations. A copy of the CCR for this past year is posted here. The CCR for this past year is also available to the public upon request.
The CCR released for the College confirms the safety of the College's drinking water but does list trace amounts of certain contaminants. The existence of such trace amounts is not considered to pose a health risk to the general population. However, persons with certain health conditions should review the list and if necessary consult a health care provider to understand whether they may be at increased risk. The CCR also reflects that in 2011, tests by the College of selected water samples detected the presence of coliform bacteria. In response to these test results, under the supervision of the WDNR and with the assistance of expert consultants retained by the College, the system was completely flushed, cleaned, and chlorinated. Rigorous testing following this incident continues to confirm the integrity and safety of the system and our source of water.
Additional questions regarding the CCR report may be referred to the local WDNR Drinking Water Representative, Mr. Charles Czarkowski, at 414-263-8628 or by accessing the WDNR website at http://dnr.wi.gov or www.wisconsin.gov. Questions may also be directed to the Lakeland College General Counsel, Tony Fessler, at 920-565-1202.
