ELECTIONS IN CAMERON

If you enjoy spending time with your neighbors and meeting new people, all while earning extra money, sign up to be a election commissioner today!!!
Cameron Parish is fortunate to have dedicated election poll workers who have served for many years.
However, recruiting and training new workers to fill in areas and precincts that lack the number needed is an ongoing process.

The top five reasons to become a poll worker are:

1. You will work with people you know and meet new friends.
2. You will play a vital role in the democratic process.
3. Your community needs you to help elections run.
4. It is a great opportunity to help people, all while having fun.
5. You get paid to do a good thing!!!!

There are just a few requirements which must be met to be selected.
• You must be a registered voter in Cameron Parish
• You must not need assistance in voting
• You must attend a Course of Instruction as required

 Seniors in high school, who are 17 years of age can serve as commissioners. Trained commissioners earn up to $200 per election. The job is not complicated and anyone who has worked the polls will tell you it’s one of the most rewarding ways to help out in your community.

 GENERAL COURSE OF INSTRUCTION DATES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Only (1) class on any of these dates is necessary.
March 5, 6, 7, 8, 2018

Now is the time to get involved!!!

NOTICE
***SEE BOLD PRINT AT BOTTOM***
Cameron Parish Water and WW District 1 is currently in violation of the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes as set forth by the State [Part XII of the Louisiana State Sanitary Code
(LAC 51:XII)] and the Federal Primary Drinking Water Regulations (40 CFR Part 141).
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (LDHH) set drinking water standards and requires the disinfection of drinking water. Where disinfection is used in the treatment of drinking water, disinfectants combine with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter present in water to form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBPs). EPA and LDHH set standards for controlling the levels of disinfectants and DBPs in drinking water, including trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acid (HAAs). Some people who drink water containing THMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or
central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
In December 1998, EPA set enforceable drinking water standards for TTHMs at 80 parts per billion (ppb) and for HAA5 at 60 parts per billion (ppb) to reduce the risk of cancer or other adverse health effects. Compliance with the TTHMs and HAA5 standard for public water systems serving less than 10,000 individuals initially became effective and enforceable on January 1, 2004. Compliance with the TTHMs standard is determined by calculating a locational running annual average (LRAA) of quarterly TTHMs sample results. Compliance calculations performed for the first quarter of 2018 show that the system’s current TTHMs LRAA is 107 ppb at DBP02– 799 Davis Road; thus, the system is currently in violation of the TTHMs standard.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
THIS IS NOT AN EMERGENCY. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. EPA and LDHH do not consider this violation to have any serious adverse health effects on human health as a result of short-term exposure; however, continued long-term exposure to TTHMs and HAA5 levels above the standard (e.g., 20 years of exposure) has the potential to have serious adverse effects on human health.
To correct this problem we are in the planning process of adding a new well and ground storage tanks to our system. This process will help distribute the chlorine levels and along with the storage tanks the addition of in-tank aeration to reduce disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethanes and haloacetic acid (THMs and HAAs).
For additional information concerning this notice please contact Cameron Parish Water and Wastewater District #1 at 337-775-5660.
