|Who Was Contacted:||Robert Trotter|
|Contacted By:||OSBORN, DANIEL (COLUMBIA COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||OTHER REGULATORY - EP-D/Robinette Well re-activated on water system|
|Details:||Robert Trotter from McNulty Water PUD wanted to know if their water system can add Entry Point D and Robinette Well (SRC-DA) back on the system.
EP-D, which had been inactivated, used to have two wells, Robinette well and Allen well. Yesterday, 6/30, Robert told me that the system has taken the Allen well offline, and they have no plans to reactivate the well on the system at this time.
The most recent Arsenic sample results thankfully showed as "Non-detect" for Entry Point D. The system still continued to collect water samples from that entry point even though it was taken offline from the system for that time.
Since the decision to take that Entry Point off of the system was done voluntarily on the system's part, and not based on a requirement from the State or County, I consulted with Abbie Spielman and Pete Farrelly. They agreed to allow McNulty Water PUD to re-activate Entry Point D with the Robinette Well, on the grounds that when EP-D is sampled, it must reflect the current conditions of the source. This means that only the Robinette well (SRC-DA) may be used, as the Allen well has been inactivated and therefore should not be included in sampling that is to be representative of the current conditions of the McNulty water system.
I then called Robert and informed him of this. Robert informed me that an arsenic sample will be collected for the water system.
