Perfluorinated Compounds 

Missoula Water has monitored for Six Perfluorinated Compounds during the required federal monitoring; also known as “unregulated contaminant monitoring rule”. Samples were collected from our wells through the years 2012-2016.

The reason the results of these compounds are not listed on the consumer confidence report is because every sample collected throughout the years came back as non-detect; a zero value.

Missoula Water is very aware of these compounds and is remaining vigilant by continuing to focus on education. When it is time to sample for the compounds again, staff will collect the samples and inform the public of the results. We all drink the water; therefore, maintaining the highest quality of water is a top priority for Missoula Water. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Missoula Water at (406) 552-6700.

Detecting Lead

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s action level of 15 parts per billion is not a health-based limit; it is an administrative tool used to check community-wide exposure. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a 1 part per billion limit for young children. Pregnant women, infants, and young children are most at risk from lead exposures, especially bottle-fed infants who drink formula made with tap water. Scientists have linked the effects of lead on the brain with lowered IQ in children.

Lead in drinking water is primarily from customers’ private plumbing pipes and fixtures. You can test and learn more about the source of any lead in your water with a 3-sample test kit from the non-profit/university partnership of Healthy Babies Bright Futures and Virginia Tech.

You can reduce your exposure to any lead in water by flushing water from your tap before you use it for drinking or cooking. Do this if the water has not run for an hour or more. Let the cold water run from the tap until you feel a temperature change before using it. This may take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes. Instead of flushing, you can use a filter certified to remove lead
