City of Dos Palos Water System has levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards


Our water system recently failed a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we are doing to correct this situation.


We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants.  Testing results we received between the _4th_quarter 2020_ and __1st_ quarter 2021__ showed that our system’s running annual average exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for Total Trihalomethanes.  The MCL standards for Total Trihalomethanes is 80 ug/L.  The average level of Total Trihalomethanes over the last year were ___130__ug/l.


What should I do?


  • You do not need to use an alternative (e.g. , bottled) water supply.

  • This is not an immediate risk.  If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. However, some people who use water containing trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may experience liver, kidney, or central nervous system problems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

  • If you have other health issues concerning the consumption of this water, you may wish to consult your doctor.
