The Dunlap Water System is pleased to present you with our annual water quality report. The report is designed to raise awareness of where our water comes from, understand treatment processes, and educate on source water protection.  This will allow you, the consumer to make informed decisions about your drinking water. More information can be obtained from the Water Treatment Plant at 949.3121 or E.P.A.’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1.800.426.4791

Where Does Our Water Come From?
The source water used for the Dunlap Water System is the Sequatchie River. The origins of the Sequatchie River begins in the Grassy Cove Community in Cumberland County. The river flows down the heart of the Sequatchie Valley where we draw out our water east of Dunlap off Old York Highway.

Public Participation
The Dunlap Water System conducts monthly business during regular City Commission Meetings. Meetings are scheduled the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at City Hall 15595 Rankin Ave.

Source Water Assessment
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation has prepared a Source Water Assessment Program Report for untreated water sources. The report assesses the susceptibility of untreated water sources to potential contamination. Our rating is moderately susceptible an explanation of the Tennessee Source Water Assessment Program, the Source Water Assessment summaries, susceptible scorings and overall TDEC report to EPA can be viewed at www.tn.gov.environment or you may copy from the Dunlap Water System.

The Dunlap Water System routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The following table shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2017 unless otherwise posted. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some constituents. It’s important to remember that the presence of these constituents does not necessarily pose a health risk.
The sources of drinking water (both tap and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals, and in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water:

  • Microbial contaminants, such as virus and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
  • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or results from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
  • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
  • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
  • Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation prescribe regulations which limit the number of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

  • 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 an organ transplant, 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 from their health care providers about drinking water. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline 1.800.426.4791.
