Annual Wastewater Report
January 24, 2017-September 30, 2017
October 1, 2017-July 31, 2019
At our treatment facility located at 388 Koontz Road Lexington, NC, 27295, filter wash water and settling basin sediment flows into two wastewater ponds from which the sediment is removed and the decant water is returned to the Yadkin River.
During calendar year 2017, decant water samples were analyzed by a certified laboratory. On August 8, 2017, manganese, which is released naturally to the environment by the weathering of rocks and sediment and occurs at low levels in soil, water, air, and food was tested. The result was 0.295 mg/l. Under the existing permit conditions the maximum allowable daily limit for manganese was 0.200 mg/l. This limitation was changed to “monitor only” with the new NPDES permit effective October 1, 2017. There were no other violations of permit conditions, environment regulations, or environmental laws.
Customers are notified of the availability of this report from our office on their February 2017 water bill, and also via our website www.davidsonwater.com.
