Results of Monitonng No contaminants were detected at lavels that violated federal ddnking water atandards. However, some contaminants were detected in trace amounts that  below legal limits, The table that follows shows the contaminants that were  in trace amounts last year. (Some contaminants are sampled less frequently than ote a year, as a result, not all oontamirtants were t'npled for In 2012. If any of these oontaminants were detected file iaat time they were sampled for, they are included in the table along w#h the date that the detection occurred.) Key to abbmviatior: MCLG--Maximm Contaminant Level Goat: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known er expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL-Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLG as feasible using the best available treatment technology. MRDL--Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level. MRDLG-Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal. AL--Action Level: The  of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirement which a water system must follow. 90th Percentile Level--This is the value obtained after disregarding 10 pement of the samples taken that had the highest levels. (For example, in a situation in which 10 samples were taken, the 90th percentile level is determined by disregarding the highest result, which represents 10 percent of the samples.) Note: In situations in which only 5 samples are taken, the average of the two with the highest levels is taken to determine the 90t percentile level. t ppm-Parts per million, which can also be expressed as milligrams per liter (rag/I). ppb-Parts per billion, which can also be expressed as micrograms per liter (Ijg/I).
