The 1998 Annual Water Quality Report is a report on the quality of the water that was delivered to our customers during 1998.  The report prepared in 1999, includes information from 1998 and therefore is titled the 1998 Annual Water Quality Report.  Following is the information and data that was included in the 1998 Annual Water Quality Report.  The report is mailed to all water customers. 

Crestline Village Water District 1998 Annual Water Quality Report

Crestline Village Water District (CVWD) has been providing Annual Water Quality Reports to its customers since 1990.  CVWD is pleased to report that in 1998, the District's water surpassed the primary and secondary standards established for all prescribed parameters.

CVWD gets its water from two sources. 1) There is a limited amount of ground water from local wells, and 2) surface water purchased from the Crestline-Lake Arrowhead Water Agency.

The Crestline area has not had enough local water supplies to meet the area's water demand since the early 1960's.  Crestline-Lake Arrowhead Water Agency was formed to buy water from the State Water Project at Silverwood Lake, treat the water, and deliver it across the mountain to meet the needs of the different communities between Cedarpines Park and Green Valley Lake.  CVWD buys the extra water it requires to meet its customer's water needs from Crestline-Lake Arrowhead Water Agency.

In California, the State of California, Department of Health Services, sets water quality standards. Drinking water standards, also called Maximum Contaminate Levels (MCLs) are set in two categories.  Primary Standards relate to public health, while Secondary Standards relate to aesthetic qualities, such as taste, odor and color.  You will find a complete listing of both types of standards, complete with test results, in the table on the reverse side.  Also included in this year's report is a column that shows the MCLG or PHG for each parameter.  MCLGs and PHGs are defined in the next section.

This report shows the results of the CVWD's water analysis of its local ground water and the results of CLAWA's water analysis of the treated imported water it sells to the District.  Depending on the location of your property, you may receive a blend of local and imported water, or you may receive all local or all imported water.

Definitions:
The following definitions are provided to help you understand the water quality report.
PUBLIC HEALTH GOAL (PHG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.  PHGs are set by the California Environmental Protection Agency.
MAXIMUM CONTAMINANT LEVEL GOAL (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.  MCLGs are set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
MAXIMUM CONTAMINATE LEVEL (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.  MCLs are set as close to the PHGs and MCLGs as is economically or technologically feasible.
PRIMARY DRINKING WATER STANDARD: Primary MCLs, specific treatment techniques adopted in lieu of primary MCLs, and monitoring and reporting requirements for MCLs that are specified in regulations.

Health Information:
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.  These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.  EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Measurements:
The Water Quality Report shows milligrams per liter (or parts per million) and micrograms per liter (parts per billion) of detectable substances.  To put these figures in perspective, one part per million is equivalent to one inch in 16 miles and one part per billion is equivalent to one inch in 16,000 miles.

Capital Improvements:
During the past year, CVWD installed approximately 13,945 lineal feet of new mains and completed construction of a new water well at the District office and a new water storage tank on Old Mill Road.  In the coming year, CVWD is planning to install approximately 12,660 lineal feet of mainlines, and begin construction of a new water storage tank near Chamois Road and a new water well on Mormon Springs Road.  CVWD is also continuing to replace and upgrade old equipment to provide an efficient and safe environment for our customers and employees.  The District is also completing necessary computer and equipment upgrades to insure that there will be no interruption to your water service as a result of the year 2000 (Y2K) computer problem.
