INDIAN CREEK HOMEOWNER'S WATER ASSOCIATION CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT
For more complete descriptions and reports, go to your Indian Creek web site, http://www.frontiernet.net/~indiancreek/, and click on Water.
The Indian Creek
Homeowner's Water Association (ICHWA) complies with all state and federal
testing requirements. The purpose of this report is not only to comply with
In 2005 we had no boil orders. A boil order does not imply that there is a safety issue with your water system. Anytime that some part of the system is opened to the outside environment, such as to replace a valve or a meter, we must issue a boil order until the output can be tested.
ICHWA has become a member of JULIE, the non-profit organization that notifies all member underground utilities of impending construction. Because water lines are underground, it is possible that a project of a homeowner might damage the water lines. As a JULIE member, we receive the same notification as the other utilities and mark our lines thus shifting the liability should damage occur. The water line is marked from the shutoff to the edge of the property. The lines from the shutoff to the home are the responsibility of the homeowner.
The project to confirm the location of the water shut-offs for all homes in Indian Creek goes on – slowly, very slowly. This is a major undertaking because most have been covered by landscaping and are difficult to locate even with sensitive metal detectors. If you know where your shut-off is located, please inform Tim Mogill (728 – 2048, firstname.lastname@example.org) so that it can be permanently marked.
We were again commended for “achieving the highest standard of compliance with the Illinois Fluoridation Act”. We remain on reduced lead/copper monitoring. All vulnerability wavers have been extended. No water quality violations were recorded for our facility based on extensive water quality testing.
No drinking water quality violations were recorded during 2005. The test data for our water is available on the site http://epadata.epa.state.il.us/water/bowccr/ccrdoc.aspx?UName=IL1135250.
In 2005 we used a total of 9,161,000 gallons of water, an increase of 224,000 gallons from the previous year. Monthly usage was highest in June at 1,187,100 gallons, lowest in March at 586,900 gallons.

Major decisions affecting the water system are made at Homeowner's Association meetings. Please attend!
The Association checks the water daily and chlorinates and fluoridates the system automatically daily. Any deviations from normality will cause the system to be shut down, the members of the Association notified, and the proper personnel notified to investigate and repair the system.
The Indian Creek Homeowner's water association is particularly indebted to Mr. Frank Cottrell, the professional operator of our water system, for maintaining our system and aiding in the preparation of this report.
