Region 5 Hazard Mitigation Plan-Public Information Meetings  

· Graham Fire District (#21)
· Central Pierce Fire District (#6)
· Graham Mutual Water Company
· Summit Water Company
· Fruitland Water Company
· Franklin Pierce School District
· Puyallup School District
· Pacific Lutheran University

These jurisdictions are cooperating in an effort to develop a plan that contains measures to mitigate vulnerabilities to the impacts of hazards such as earthquakes, floods, severe storms, droughts, volcanoes, tsunamis and landslides.

The proposed measures cover a broad range of categories including, but not limited to, protecting life and property, ensuring emergency services, preserving natural resources, and increasing public preparedness for natural hazards that affect the area.

 

Information on the plan and the jurisdictions involved in its development can be found on the Pierce County website at www.co.pierce.wa.us/mitigation.

Questions or comments can be directed to: Luke Meyers at (253) 798-7843, lmeyer1@co.pierce.wa.us.

Definition of mg/l

What is mg/l or ppm?

The abbreviation mg/l stands for milligrams per liter. In metric units this is the weight of a chemical (chlorine or fluoride as an example) dissolved in liter of water. 1 liter of water weighs 1 million milligrams; i.e. (ppm – parts per million)

Note: Part per million; One part per million is the equivalent of ½ of a dissolved aspirin tablet in a full bathtub of water (approximately 50 gallons).

 

Chlorination, pH Adjustment & Fluoride in Your Water

Please note that water distributed in the Summit Water & Supply Company Service Area has various EPA required treatment chemicals added to the water at the source (prior to the water entering the distribution system).

Gaseous Chlorine (Cl2) is injected into the water as it comes from our wells and prior to entering the distribution system. Wholesale water purchased from Lakewood Water is treated with Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl).  Lakewood Water maintains a higher chlorine concentration than Summit Water does and as a result, the water within our distribution system has various chlorine residuals depending on the season, as well as the amount of water pumped from our wells and the amount wholesale water purchased from Lakewood Water.

Summit Water also injects Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) into the water prior to the water entering the distribution system. Injection of the Sodium Hydroxide is necessary to adjust the pH of our well water and comply with the “Lead/Copper Rule".

Although Summit Water does not add fluoride to our water, it is naturally present at low concentration in most fresh water and therefore, may be present in trace amounts in your drinking water. 

Consumers who are dialysis patients and/or other special needs customers should discuss these facts with their physicians.

Customers with fish tanks should also take the necessary precautions to assure the health of their fish.
