Details: SUMMARY: OEL Exceedance for HAA5 - 2Q2014 DETAILS: With the May 7, 2014 disinfection byproducts sampling results, the Operational Evaluation Level (OEL) for HAA5 was exceeded for Astoria with an OEL for HAA5 of 0.061 mg/l for the 1st and D sample location. The Locational Running Annual Average for HAA5 at that location was 0.043 mg/l. In response to the OEL exceedance, Astoria submitted an Operational Evaluation to our office, received on July 17, 2014. The OEL report was approved in a letter dated 7/30/14. Future steps to reduce DBP formation that were identified in the Operational Evaluation include the following: 1. Increasing automatic flusher timers in areas with high HAA5ís-- 2. Evaluting use of existing sources that changes with seasonal changes in raw water quality-- 3. Evaluating development of a new source of supply (Spur 14) such that water can be supplied by Spur 14 to the slow sand plant-- and 4. The City will also continue to work with CH2M Hill on developing strategies to lower DBP formation in the distribution system. ACTION NEEDED: City to continue to evaluate solutions to mitigate elevated HAA5 levels.
