Water supply message from VP Waldron

To: Members of the UMaine Community

From: Janet Waldron, vice president for administration and finance

Officials at the Orono-Veazie Water district, which supplies the UMaine campus, have let us know about a non-emergency issue related to that water supply.

Standard testing protocols revealed that the district’s water exceeded acceptable levels of Total Trihalomethanes during the July-September time frame.

There is no immediate risk nor is there any need to boil water or seek alternatives.  The water district does say, on its Web site, that “some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.”  They recommend that individuals with specific concerns consult medical professionals.

More details are availble online at the water district’s Web site.  Click on “important information.”

For more information, contact the water district office at 866-4449.
