Since the Affordable Care
Act went into effect Jan. 1,
there has been an enrollment
jump of 36 percent in the 12-
county South Country Health
Alliance (SCHA) insurance
The news was presented in
a semi-annual report to the
Sibley County Board of
Commissioners at the May 27
meeting by Leota Lind, South
Country Health Alliance Ex-
ecutive Director.
SCHA is a county-based
managed care purchasing
program that incorporates
both medical and social serv-
ices, enabling the 12 mem-
bers to receive services in a
comprehensive and cohesive
The income-based program
is for people eligible for Min-
nesota Health Care Programs
in one of the counties.
Lind reported on the enroll-
ment impact SCHA is seeing
as a result of the Affordable
Care Act that started the first
of the year. Particularly, she
noted how it relates to the eli-
gibility requirements for
medical assistance and Min-
nesota Care (MNCare).
“As a result of the Afford-
able Care Act we have seen a
significant increase of 36 per-
cent in our enrollment, partic-
ularly in the first quarter of
2014,” said Lind. “We ended
2013 with just under 22,800
enrollees. By April 1 our en-
rollment had increased by al-
most 31,000.”
Sibley County’s enrollment
in that same time period for
all programs provided in-
creased by more than 500 to
1,751 since Jan. 1.
Lind explained that in one
chart there was a big jump in
enrollment in MNCare in
Sibley County in December.
However, in January that
dropped from 148 to 56. At
the same time enrollment in
Medicaid went up.
“The reason for that is that
people who were previously
served under MNCare now
qualify for medical assis-
tance,” said Lind. “They now
move from the MNCare
product into the Medicaid
Lind said the reason for the
big jump is the government
changed the eligibility re-
quirements. The biggest fac-
tor is there used to be an asset
level for medical assistance,
but the limit was removed.
“Because everyone eligible
has to have insurance, people
who applied on line, thinking
they would purchase insur-
ance on the exchange, found
out they were eligible for one
of these assistance pro-
grams,” said Lind. “They
never knew they were eligi-
ble before.”
Under the Affordable Care
Act everyone is required to
have a basic health care pro-
gram. It is for people who fall
through the cracks where
they are not eligible for med-
ical assistance, but are not
able to afford to purchase
health care on the exchange.
The state is planning to
convert MNCare to the basic
health care program in 2015,
but they plan on continuing to
call it MNCare.
Challenging Year
Lind said that it was a real
challenge to plan ahead for
2014 because SCHA did not
know what would be the
changes in enrollment.
“We had to use a number
of assumptions because there
were not good numbers out
there,” said Lind. “The big
factor in planning for 2014 is
we don’t know what the new
membership is going to look
like. Some of them have been
previously insured, but there
are a number who had not
had access to health care.”
Financial Picture
Lind said in 2013 SCHA
did a good job of managing
the medical care expenses as
opposed to the revenue. Plus,
in 2013 there were lower
medical expenses than antici-
pated. SCHA ended the year
with a net income of $7.2
“When you look at 2014,
although we are expecting
revenue to go up, we also ex-
pect claims cost will go up
along with it,” said Lind. “It
helps that we had a couple of
years of stabilization. We
ended 2013 with $24 million
in capital and surplus. It posi-
tions us to deal with all the
challenges that may be ahead
of us.”
The organization had
worked hard the last few
years to get back into a finan-
cially stable position. SCHA
has been able to do some
community investment and
re-investment into the organi-
“We were able to maintain
rates for our providers,” said
Lind. “We were able to do
some increased payments to

Jennifer Strack recently
began her duties as the new
coordinator of the newly es-
tablished and jointly spon-
sored Community Education
and Recreation Program.
The program is a joint
sponsorship of the Sibley
East Public Schools and the
cities of Arlington, Gaylord
and Green Isle.
“I am very excited,” said
Strack. “A community educa-
tion program is so vital to the
communities of Sibley East. I
am looking forward to work-
ing with city administration,
Sibley East administration,
various community groups,
and community members to
build upon the program that
is already in place.”
Strack said the immediate
goal is “keep the program
running smoothly without
any interruptions for the resi-
dents and in the fall start
adding some classes and new
opportunities for the resi-
Strack added, “I have start-
ed with the Summer Rec pro-
gram. Summer Rec was run
through each individual city
in the past. It has now be-
come a part of Sibley East
Community Education and
Recreation Program. I have
taken the two programs and
streamlined them so they will
be run identically in the com-
munities of Arlington and
Gaylord. Each city will have
their own teams for traveling
softball and baseball as they
have had in the past. Arling-
ton will change to evening t-
ball and I have added one
night for t-ball in Green Isle.”
Strack said the long-term
goal is to build a strong, di-
verse program based on the
needs of the communities in-
volved. The needs will be
ever changing.
“It is my goal to keep the
programming ever changing
and building as those com-
munity needs change.”
Strack added, “All commu-
nity members have a special
talent or gift that they are
passionate about. It can be
anything. The definition for
Community Education is resi-
dents or business owners that
share their wide range talents
with others though a class or
series of classes offered to
other local residents. Please
consider sharing your talents
with others by hosting a class
or taking a few days out of
your schedule to coach a
team. You will never regret
spending time with your chil-
dren or others in the commu-
nity and teaching them a new

When the dust cleared after
the recent state legislative
session there were some bills
passed that impact public
health in Sibley County.
Vicki Stock, Public Health
and Human Services (PH/HS)
Director, gave an update on
the session at the May 27
meeting of the Sibley County
board of commissioners.
“Eliminating E-cigs was a
big thing for public health,”
said Stock. “Leadership in the
House was behind it, but
there were not enough votes
to pass the full bill. We were
able to get some things
through. E-Cigs are limited in
certain places like public
schools and hospitals. That
may come back again to get
the ban expanded.”
The medical marijuana bill
did not pass all the way, re-
ported Stock. Basically, about
5,000 children in Minnesota
who have severe health situa-
tions will be able to benefit.
The law goes into effect July
of 2015.
The people who are not
able to benefit from medical
marijuana are those with
chronic pain and those suffer-
ing from post traumatic stress
Another area that was ap-
proved was smoke-free foster
homes. There was concern
how this would impact the
number of foster homes.
After studies it was deter-
mined it probably wouldn’t
have an impact because
smokers in foster homes al-
ready choose to smoke out-
side their homes.
Stock noted that grants for
mental health programs were
increased. She added it is sad
to say the county is seeing
more children with mental
health issues.
“This grant allows the kids
to be seen in school when
they are having a crisis,” said
Stock. “They get the counsel-
ing right there. We have seen
some very positive results in
the GFW schools.”
Medical assistance eligibil-
ity for hospitalized jail in-
mates also passed in the leg-
islature. Stock said this could
save the county some dollars.
The state WIC program re-
ceived an increase of $200
per month, also saving the
county some costs.
Other Business
The lists of Sibley County
employees coming and going
has been growing in recent
months, primarily in Public
Health and Human Services.
Several resignations were
reported at the May 27 coun-
ty board meeting. Plus, Stock
introduced new staff mem-
Keri Butzer is a new family
facilitator. Lori Jacobus is an
eligibility financial worker.
Rachael Joerg was hired as a
disability social worker. Elis-
abeth Aiken is a new eligibili-
ty case management worker.
Resignations reported in-
cluded Jacob Hanson as cor-
rectional officer, Melissa Ko-
ford as a PH/HS eligibility
worker, Kris Swenson as a
PH/HS chemical dependency
worker and Linda Gerholtz as
a license center technician.
Stock said there are two
new resignations coming.
Legislative decisions impact health in Sibley County
Sibley East junior Jonah Butler recently received first
place honors and a $750 cash award during I-SWEEP,
an international science fair, in Houston. Butler also
recently placed second among 1,783 participants in
his category during another international science fair,
ISEF, in Los Angeles. He received $12,500 from
RICOH and $3,000 from United Airlines. In addition,
Butler received $1,500 for second place. In total, But-
ler earned $17,750 which will be used for college tu-
ition. The name of his science fair entry is “Employing
in Situ Generated Peracetic Acid and Fungal Biolsyn-
thesis to Produce Biofuels.” He is the son of Bill and
Christine Butler.

New Plan
For Future
Finally, Lind told the board
that she is talking with
PrimeWest, a similar organi-
zation, about how they can do
this together. Information is
being gathered as this is in the
early exploration stage to see
if it is feasible.
“We are looking at bringing
counties together so you
would have a larger pool to
spread out the risk in order to
be more cost effective,” added
Lind. “If so, it would come
back to the county boards for
approval. In 2015-16 we
would seek to see what a plan
would look like and possibly
start it in 1-1-2017. It will
take a significant amount of
work to pull it all together.”

SE Task Force finalizes
facility recommendation
for SE School Board
Our View: Taxpayers are encouraged to
be open minded and study the facts
Letter To The Editor
Guest Column
The Sibley East Task Force, which was assembled to evaluate and
make recommendations to the School Board on the district facilities,
completed its work during a meeting in Arlington on Tuesday night,
June 3.
The recommendation calls for the construction of a new PreK-5 or
PreK-6 building in Gaylord and the renovation of the existing build-
ing in Arlington into a Grade 6-12 or 7-12 school. The estimated cost
is around $42 million.
Under the recommendation, the preferred site for the new elemen-
tary school would be on approximately 20 acres owned by the City of
Gaylord. It is located north of Highway 5 on the east edge of Gaylord.
The final selection of the preferred site is contingent upon a land
swap between the City of Gaylord and the Sibley East Public Schools.
Under the same recommendation, a new three-station gymnasium
would be added onto the north end of the building in Arlington. In ad-
dition, the 1936 portion of the building would be demolished. A com-
mons area, classrooms and kitchen would be constructed on the north
end of the building in Arlington.
There is a huge difference in this proposal compared to the new
school which was voted down in May of 2011. The task force is much
more community driven than three years ago. The group has also
taken into account the feedback from the last post-referendum survey.
For example, a majority of people want a school building in their
community. In addition, a majority of people had issues with the land
acquisition costs for the proposed PreK-12 school from a few years
The Task Force did not rush to a final recommendation. The dedi-
cated group of citizens held eight meetings and studied anywhere
from 15 to 18 options. In the end, Task Force members believe this is
the recommendation that meets the educational needs of students in
the school district in the most financially feasible way possible. They
also believe it is a plan that voters will find acceptable.
Some people will no doubt be quick to criticize the recommenda-
tion and its estimated cost. Rumors about misfacts will begin to circu-
late. However, that does not solve the issue. Something needs to be
done about the facilities at the Sibley East Public Schools.
The hope is that the taxpayers will be open minded, study the facts
and make an informed choice on the referendum during early 2015.
In the meantime, kudos to the members of the Sibley East Task
Force. They have given up many free nights and devoted several
hours in their role and task to arrive at a final recommendation. Thank
you for your efforts!

It’s depressing to read poll after
poll highlighting Americans’ utter
disdain for Congress. But it’s my en-
counters with ordinary citizens at
public meetings or in casual conver-
sation that really bring me up short.
In angry diatribes or in resigned
comments, people make clear their
dwindling confidence in both politi-
cians and the institution itself.
With all Congress’s imperfections
— its partisanship, brinksmanship,
and exasperating inability to legis-
late – it’s not hard to understand this
loss of faith. Yet as people vent their
frustration, I hear something else as
well. It is a search for hope. They
ask, almost desperately sometimes,
about grounds for renewed hope in
our system. Here’s why I’m confi-
dent that we can do better.
Let’s start with a point that should
be obvious, but that people rarely
notice: Our expectations are too
high. In part, this is our elected offi-
cials’ fault: they over-promise and
under-perform. They set the bar high
— promising strong leadership, a
firm hand on the legislative tiller,
and great policy accomplishments
— then usually fail to clear it.
Which should come as no sur-
prise. Congress is not built for effi-
ciency or speediness. On almost
every issue, progress comes in in-
crements. The future of the Ameri-
can health care system may appear
to hang on the debate raging these
days about the Affordable Care Act,
but this is just the latest installment
of a long-running fight that began
even before the creation of Medicare
and Medicaid almost five decades
Congress deals with complex is-
sues over many years and, some-
times, dozens of pieces of legisla-
tion. Focusing on any one moment
in our legislative history is to miss
the slow but undeniable advance of
progress on Capitol Hill.
I also tend to be more patient with
congressional leaders than many
people who share their frustrations
with me. Our political leaders con-
front a terribly difficult political en-
vironment: the country is both
deeply and evenly divided along
partisan and ideological lines. Get-
ting 218 votes in the House and 60
votes in the Senate can be a punish-
ing task. It takes skill, competence,
and a great deal of passion to make
progress in this kind of environment
— especially when those in Con-
gress who are dedicated to finding a
way forward have to face colleagues
who do not appear to want the sys-
tem to work.
This brings me to a third point. If
50 years of watching Congress
closely have taught me anything, it’s
to wait until the end of a congres-
sional session to see what members
actually accomplish. Despite all the
bickering, roadblocks, delays, and
grandstanding, Congress can often
pass significant legislation by the
end of a session, even if it can’t do
everything we expect of it.
And members of Congress are
good politicians. Most try hard to
understand what the people want,
and try to bring about meaningful
change, at least within their ideolog-
ical framework. It may take a while,
but Congress in the end responds to
public sentiment. That is why it will
pass the government’s basic funding
bills this year, having learned from
the public outrage over last year’s
government shutdown.
Finally, Congress has proven over
its long history that even in the most
difficult circumstances it can be as-
toundingly productive. The very
first Congress, meeting at a time of
enormous political uncertainty and
financial trouble, was able to firm
up the new government’s structure
and set the course for the nation’s
At one of the darkest times in our
recent history, during the height of
the Watergate scandal — when ten-
sions between Congress and the
White House and between Democ-
rats and Republicans were no less
pointed than they are now — Con-
gress and President Nixon were still
able to collaborate on the Federal
Aid Highway Act, the Trans-Alaska
Pipeline Authorization, the Endan-
gered Species Act, the Legal Servic-
es Corporation Act, an overhaul of
the farm subsidy program, and an
increase in the minimum wage.
Congress often has risen above
periods of great contention. It pos-
sesses a resilience that is obvious
from the perspective of decades.
Building on that search for hope in
our system, and on the long histori-
cal record, Americans have good
reason to believe that Congress can
and will do better.

Center on Congress at Indiana Uni-
versity. He was a member of the

Why I still have faith in Congress
To The Editor,
Chances are you have noticed
extra law enforcement on our roads
and “Click It or Ticket” messages on
TV and radio. The effort and the
messages certainly raise awareness
about seatbelts and their use, but
there is a deeper reason for the cam-
paign. Quite simply, there are far too
many preventable fatalities and life-
altering injuries occurring on Min-
nesota roads.
In the past five years alone, 587
people died and 9,739 were injured
as a result of not wearing seat belts
– that’s more than 41 percent of all
motor vehicle occupant fatalities.
In my 32 years in law enforce-
ment, I heard the excuses:
• “Not buckling up only affects
me.” Unfortunately, an unbelted mo-
torist can be tossed around the vehi-
cle, striking others. An unbelted
driver can fly out of reach of the
steering wheel and lose control of
the vehicle. Crashes, deaths and in-
juries attributed to unbelted mo-
torists cost taxpayers millions of
• “I’m a safe driver.” You may be,
but what about other drivers who
share the road with you? A seat belt
keeps you in the vehicle’s designed
protective space and allows for de-
ployed air bags to work properly.
• “I don’t need to buckle up in the
back seat.” Not true. Minnesota’s
seat belt law requires drivers and
passengers in all seating positions to
be buckled up or in the correct child
Behind every statistic is a person.
And every single person who has
died on our roads has left behind
loved ones. This is why we are com-
mitted to doing all we can to prevent
needless deaths on our roadways.
Buckle up – it’s the law and it’s
your best defense in case of a crash.

Scholar of Distinction
Clare Seeman, a senior at Minnetonka
High School, was recently named a
Minnesota Scholar of Distinction in
Theater Arts. Seeman was one of six
winners from the state of Minnesota.
The Minnesota Scholar of Distinction in
Theater Arts program grants awards in
one or more of the following areas of
theater: acting, playwriting, design and
technical theater, or directing. Seeman
was honored for her work in acting. Ap-
plicants were required to submit an ex-
tensive portfolio, which included an
artistic statement, a resume, work sam-
ples, and letters of recommendation.
The final round of applications required
a live audition of two monologues, a
scene with a scene partner and an in-
terview with the judges. The recogni-
tion of being named a Minnesota Schol-
ar of Distinction for Theater Arts was
the culmination of nine years of theater
experience for Seeman. In addition to
participating in 23 shows at Minnetonka
High School and Minnetonka Theatre,
Seeman also performed on stage with
Children’s Theatre Company, Stages
Theatre and the Old Log Theater where
she appeared this fall with James Den-
ton in Rancho Mirage. This fall Seeman
will be attending Dartmouth College to
pursue studies in theatre and biology.
She is the daughter of Dan and Cyndy

daughter of Don and Mary Seeman, Ar-
lington, and Bud and Shirley Locher,

The Minnesota Department
of Transportation (MnDOT)
is deploying Rural Intersec-
tion Conflict Warning Sys-
tems (RICWS) at rural inter-
sections across the state
which use technology on
signs to give motorists real-
time warning about oncoming
traffic, also referred to as col-
lision avoidance systems.
These signs warn motorists
with sensors and flashing
lights that are expected to re-
duce fatal and injury crashes
at higher risk intersections.
Throughout MnDOT Dis-
trict 8, motorists will see
these systems being placed at
the following intersections,
beginning Thursday, June 5 at
Highway 23 and Lyon Coun-
ty Road 30 in Marshall and
the following week at High-
ways 212 and 22 near Glen-
Rural intersections can be
higher risk for a number of
reasons, including: at grade,
higher speeds, driver compla-
cency with lower volumes of
traffic, and longer distances
that emergency medical and
trauma teams travel to trans-
port victims.
According to Minnesota
Crash Facts, fatal crashes
tend to occur on roads in
rural areas with higher speeds
and with non-interstate de-
signs (separation between op-
posing lanes and grade sepa-
rated intersections, etc.) In
2011, 225 crashes, or 67 per-
cent, of all fatal crashes oc-
curred in rural areas with
populations of less than 5,000
“To help combat rural in-
tersection crashes, RICWS
systems will provide mo-
torists with better informa-
tion , or warning, so motorists
can change driving behavior
before a crash occurs”, notes
Ryan Barney, District 8 Traf-
fic Engineer.
The proposed dynamic
warning signs with flashing
beacons will advise drivers
on major roads with a mes-
sage “Entering Traffic When
Flashing. ” Motorists on
minor roads will see flashing
beacons and the message
“Traffic Approaching When
Flashing.” The RICWS sys-
tems will be installed at 20
rural intersections statewide
with another 30 planned over
the next two summers, for a
total of 50 systems with this
initial deployment.
MnDOT is a partner with
the Minnesota Department of
Public Safety and the Min-
nesota Department of Health
in the Toward Zero Death ini-
tiative (TZD), which inte-
grates the use of education,
engineering, enforcement,
and emergency medical and
trauma services in communi-
ties to reduce traffic fatalities
and injuries on Minnesota
roads. It is the hope that these
systems will continue us on
our path towards that goal of
Towards Zero Deaths.

The Sibley East varsity
girls track team will have one
representative at the Min-
nesota State Class A Girls
Track and Field Meet at
Hamline University on Fri-
day, June 6 and Saturday,
June 7.
Senior Megan Eckberg
earned the honor after she ran
under the state qualifying
standard of 16.05 seconds in
the 100 meter hurdles event
during the Section 2A Girls
Track and Field Meet at
Mankato West High School
on Saturday, May 31.
Eckberg, who placed third,
turned in a time of 15.39 sec-
onds and broke the Sibley
East school record of 15.4
seconds set by Lori Garlock
in 1994.
Eckberg is no stranger to
the state track meet. She
placed fourth in the 100
meter hurdles at the state
track meet last year.
Fairmont junior Sierra
Schultz captured top honors
with a time of 15.13 seconds.
“Megan had a great day
and competed in three events
and handled them all,” said
Sibley East head coach Jill
Warzecha. “She had been
chasing that school record all
season and we knew it was
within her sights. Megan and
assistant coach Mike Vrklan
spent time fine tuning this
past week which was evident
this past Saturday at the sec-
tion meet.”
Warzecha added, “Our sec-
tion has produced some of the
fastest hurdle times in the
state. In fact, five hurdlers
from Section 2A will be rep-
resenting our section at the
state level.”
Sibley East sophomore
Megan Krentz placed third in
the discus event with a per-
sonal best throw of 117 feet.
She was 3’10” from the state
qualifying standard.
St. Clair senior Katelyn
Weber captured top honors
with a throw of 135’.04”
“I am excited to watch
Megan continue to improve
and we hope to take her to the
state meet in the future,” said
Warzecha. “She was coached
by Khamprasong Chantharak
who stepped in prior to the
season beginning to work
with our throws. We were
lucky to have him this season
and hope to have him assist
in some capacity in the fu-
ture. He is a great coach and
I am lucky to work with such
a talented coaching staff.
Their expertise has made my
job easier and I am grateful
for their dedication.”
The Sibley East 4 X 200
meter relay team placed
eighth with a clocking of
1:54.28. The foursome in-
cluded Megan Eckberg, Tay-
lor Brinkman, Ali Stock and
Alyssa Weber.

between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm or on the City’s website: www.arlingtonmn.com.
The City of Arlington is issuing the results of monitoring done on its drinking water for the period from January 1 to December 31,
2013. The purpose of this report is to advance consumers’ understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to
protect precious water resources.
The City of Arlington provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: two wells ranging from 690 to 732 feet
deep, that draw water from the Eau Claire-Mt. Simon aquifer.
The Minnesota Department of Health has determined that the source(s) used to supply your drinking water is not particularly sus-
ceptible to contamination. If you wish to obtain the entire source water assessment regarding your drinking water, please call 651-
201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) duri ng normal busi ness hours. Al so, you can vi ew i t on l i ne at
Call Mike Barthel of PeopleService, Inc. at 507-964-2211, if you have questions about the City of Arlington drinking water or would
like information about opportunities for public participation in decisions that may affect the quality of the water.
No contaminants were detected at levels that violated federal drinking water standards. However, some contaminants were detect-
ed in trace amounts that were below legal limits. The table that follows shows the contaminants that were detected in trace amounts
last year. (Some contaminants are sampled less frequently than once a year; as a result, not all contaminants were sampled for in
2013. If any of these contaminants were detected the last time they were sampled for, they are included in the table along with the
date that the detection occurred.)
Key to abbreviations:
MCLG – Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expect-
ed 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 MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
MRDL – Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level.
MRDLG – Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal.
AL – Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirement which a water
system must follow.
Percentile Level – This is the value obtained after disregarding 10 percent of the samples taken that had the highest levels.
(For example, in a situation in which 10 samples were taken, the 90
percentile level is determined by disregarding the highest re-
sult, 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 90
percentile level.
pCi/l – PicoCuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity).
ppm – Parts per million, which can also be expressed as milligrams per liter (mg/l).
ppb – Parts per billion, which can also be expressed as micrograms per liter ( g/l).
N/A – Not Applicable (does not apply).
*This is the value used to determine compliance with federal standards. It sometimes is the highest value detected and sometimes
is an average of all the detected values. If it is an average, it may contain sampling results from the previous year.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in
drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Arlington is re-
sponsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When
your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to
2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water
tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the
Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Monitoring may have been done for additional contaminants that do not have MCLs established for them and are not required to be
monitored under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Results may be available by calling 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 during normal
business hours.
Compliance with National Primary Drinking Water Regulations
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, ra-
dioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, indus-
trial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by products of industrial processes
and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations which limit
the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish lim-
its for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and po-
tential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 800 426 4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or
other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice
about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryp-
tosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 800 426 4791.
Water is a precious resource, please help conserve and prevent pollution by following these simple tips:
**Check your water meter routinely to see if it is moving while there are no faucets open (no one is using water). If it is moving you
have a leak that needs to be fixed. All leaks should be fixed as soon as possible.
**Water your lawn in the early morning or later evening to limit the amount of evaporation that occurs during the heat of the day.
**When updating fixtures or appliances, please consider low flow types or Energy Star qualified models.
**Additional conservation tips available through the Environmental Protection Agency’s website:
**Pickup pet waste from your yard and while out walking.
**Minimize use of fertilizers and pesticides.
**Clean up chemical spills and fix fluids leaking from vehicles.
**Don’t flush leftover medication down the toilet or drain.
(Medications, in their original containers, are accepted {no questions asked} at the Sibley County Sheriff’s Office in Gaylord.)
Please discharge all sump pumps to the outside of your residence. Discharging to the sanitary sewer (down a floor drain)
is illegal and it overwhelms the treatment plant.
