Village of Ashville Water Department
Annually, the Village of Ashville includes a report on the quality of water provided to our residents in our monthly newsletter. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (O-EPA) calls this the CCR or Consumer Confidence Report. All community public water systems are required to prepare a CCR and distribute this to their customers. The report contains information on the community's drinking water including the source of the water, contaminants detected, the likely sources of detected contaminants, health effects of the contaminants when violations occur, and availability of source assessments.
CCR's are required by the 1996 amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. The Federal Rule (40 CFR 141.151 through 155) was finalized in August 19, 1998. We hope this information will provide you comfort and security. We recognize that water quality is a very important area of operation.
The Village of Ashville pumped 223.709 gallons in 2015 with 14.858 removed in the process resulting in total finished pumped or 208.851 MG.
A Word from the Water Department
Starting August of 2015, the softeners at the water plant were rehabbed by replacing several valves, installing new meters, and programming work. This work was completed over three to four months and has allowed us to make the operation of the softeners more efficient resulting in salt and water conservation during the process. Also, in July we had an EPA inspection that went well with no major issues. Last year we began the process of connecting the water lines between Ashville and South Bloomfield for an emergency connection. The agreement was made and the work was finished earlier this year. This cooperation between the two municipalities will help secure both water systems and has opened the possibilities of more work together in the future. With several hydrants being replaced, all the softener work at the plant, and multiple projects around town in 2015, I am proud to say we have had very little to no interruption of service and zero violations.
In July of last year, the water department began the annual lead and copper monitoring for our distribution system. The results below show that there are no concerns for lead and copper concentrations. Also, in early 2016, the village took a proactive approach and doubled the amount of sampling required and completed another round of testing within the village. The same results being no elevated concentrations for lead or copper in the system.
