2 Letter From The Managing Director The Source Of Your Water Dear Valued JEA Water Customer: Over the past ten years JEA has continued to make an investment in building a Better Jacksonville by spending $2 billion to rehabilitate and expand our water and sewer infrastructure. This improves services today and allows for future growth. We are also investing an additional $50 million to fund the Total Water Management Plan, a project planned to ensure a sustainable long-term water resource. As part of this project, we set a record for the longest directional drill in the country. This was accomplished when a 6,700 foot long, 36-inch water pipe was tunneled underneath the St. Johns River. When the Total Water Management Plan project is complete, it will allow us to better balance water withdrawals throughout our service territory. This will help alleviate any potential stresses to the aquifer over the years to come, protect our water supply, and maintain the high quality of drinking water our customers expect. For the first time ever, JEA is pleased to bring you the 2012 edition of our Water Quality Report and Water Conservation Guide electronically. We will be happy to send you a paper copy if you prefer. Simply your request to You can also pick up a copy of this report at our Customer Care Center downtown at 21 West Church Street, as well as at any branch of the Jacksonville Public Library. We suggest you pour yourself a refreshing glass of JEA water, sit down, and take a few minutes to review the information contained in this report. The first section of this document provides an overview of the water system and details the results of our extensive drinking water testing program. You will then find useful ideas for saving water, that can lower your bill. For example, 30 to 40 percent of the water JEA delivers to our customers is used to irrigate landscapes. To reduce this use, JEA encourages our customers with pop-up irrigation systems to sign up for a free LawnSmart Irrigation audit to make sure your irrigation system is as efficient as possible. By saving water you ll likely save money on your monthly utility bill. And best of all, you will save water for generations to come. Sincerely, Paul McElroy JEA Managing Director & CEO Your water source is the Floridan aquifer, which is one of the major sources of groundwater in the United States. This highly productive aquifer system underlies all of Florida, southern Georgia, and small parts of adjacent Alabama and South Carolina a total area of about 100,000 square miles. Our abundant, fresh, clean water supply is obtained by drilling wells deep into the aquifer. The water is then pumped to large water reservoirs where it is aerated, chlorinated for disinfection, and then distributed via pumping stations to you and other customers. In 2012 the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) performed Source Water Assessments on our systems. These assessments were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. The number of potential sources and susceptibility level of contamination identified for all wells in our systems are shown in the table below. Potential sources of contamination indentified could include landfills, above and underground fuel storage tanks, dry cleaning facilities, and wastewater System # of Potential Sources Susceptibility Level Major Grid 48 Low-Moderate Mayport 0 N/A Lofton Oaks Grid 0 N/A Ponte Vedra Grid 0 N/A Ponce de Leon Grid 4 Low-Moderate disposal areas.

The Major Grid is comprised of 26 water treatment plants (WTPs) and two storage and repump facilities that are fully interconnected. This system is supported by 115 active wells and 64.5 million gallons of storage. These WTPs provide water to our customers through a water distribution system consisting of approximately 4,067 miles of water distribution mains ranging from two inches to 36 inches in diameter. The separate system in Mayport has two wells, 30,000 gallons of storage and three miles of water distribution mains. Our Nassau customers are provided water by the Lofton Oaks Grid consisting of six wells with 1.39 million gallons of storage and 108 miles of distribution mains. Customers within the remaining parts of St. Johns County are provided water by the Ponte Vedra Grid (three wells with 0.5 million gallons of storage and 31 miles of distribution mains), the Ponce de Leon Grid (four wells with 0.61 million gallons of storage and 13 miles of distribution mains), and the Marsh Harbor and Palm Valley water systems (through an interconnection with St. Johns County Utility Department). JEA owns and operates the Marsh Harbor and Palm Valley distribution systems. Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua de beber.

3 Hardness Information Ensuring the Safety of Our Drinking Water These tables list the Total Hardness at each Water Treatment Plant. These values are the average of the hardness from each of the wells servicing the plant, and were sampled in October December What is Hard Water? Water is described as hard when it contains high levels of dissolved minerals primarily calcium and magnesium. These are naturally occurring soluble compounds that are present in the aquifer. Is it harmful? Hard water is not a health risk. Calcium and magnesium are both important to human health and are commonly taken as supplements or as antacids. Remove it with vinegar! Hard water leaves spots on dishes and windows, and a buildup of scale on plumbing fixtures and coffee pots. These can easily be dissolved with white distilled (common household) vinegar: Use vinegar in your dishwasher as a rinse-agent. Run it through a brewing cycle in your coffee pot then rinse thoroughly. Soak faucets overnight in vinegar to remove corrosion. 301 Duval County 4 JEA Ser vice Area Nassau County Blanding Blvd Roosevelt Blvd A Atlantic Blvd Beach Blvd. 8 JTB St. Johns County Major Grid Other JEA Grids Water service by other utilities Nassau County Service Area St. Johns County Service Area WATER TREATMENT PARTS PER GRAINS PER PLANT MILLION GALLON Major Grid (Duval & St. Johns Counties) 1 Arlington Beacon Hills Brierwood Cecil Commerce Center Community Hall Deerwood III Fairfax Hendricks Highlands Julington Creek Plantation Lakeshore Lovegrove Main Street Marietta McDuff Monument Road Norwood N Oakridge Ridenour Royal Lakes Southeast Southwest St. Johns Forest St. Johns North Westlake Woodmere Independent Plant 27 Mayport Lofton Oaks Grid (Nassau County) 28 Lofton Oaks Nassau Regional Otter Run West Nassau Ponce De Leon Grid (St. Johns County) 32 A1A North A1A South Ponce De Leon Ponte Vedra Grid (St. Johns County) 35 Corona Road Ponte Vedra North The number on the map at left corresponds to the location of the water plant listed in the table above. Why am I getting a Water Quality Report? The Annual Water Quality Report (or Consumer Confidence Report) is intended for all customers of community water systems. This is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirement under the 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments and it is required that this be made available to every customer annually. Important Information About the Data in This Booklet JEA routinely monitors for contaminants in our drinking water according to federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, As authorized and approved by the EPA, the state has reduced monitoring for certain requirements to less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of our data, though representative, is more than one year old. The results consist of a listing of all contaminants detected in our drinking water during the sample period. Out of more than 100 contaminants for which JEA routinely tests, only those that have been detected appear in the tables. Cross Connection Control Backflow preventers protect water safety Protecting the safety of the water is a primary concern for JEA. One of the ways we ensure safe drinking water is to protect the public water supply from cross connections between our drinking water delivery system and any other source of water. Typical examples of other sources of water include private wells, reclaimed water, and irrigation systems using surface water (e.g. ponds and lakes). The quality of these alternative water supplies cannot be assured, and introduction of water from these sources into the public drinking water supply poses a risk to all our water service customers. To prevent non-potable water from entering the JEA distribution system, JEA s Cross Connection Control Policy requires customers with alternative water sources on their premises to install and maintain a backflow preventer to isolate the water source. The policy, in accordance with local and state regulations, requires annual testing of backflow preventers to ensure they are working properly. JEA provides a list of preferred vendors, and customers can choose a tester from our list or choose another certified tester to perform the annual test. The tester submits the report to us so we can update our records. Failure to test and report may result in interruption of service. JEA relies on its customers for this important piece of the overall plan to protect the public water supply. More information is available about backflow prevention requirements by contacting JEA s Cross Connection Control group by at or voice mail at Visit for fact sheets, regulatory framework and other requirements of JEA s Cross Connection Control Policy. Annual tests ensure backflow preventers are functioning properly. Photo courtesy of Bob s Backflow & Plumbing 3 4

5 Important Information Provided by the EPA Additional Health Effects Language The following is general information and much of it does not necessarily pertain to JEA-supplied drinking water because of our deep-well, groundwater source. Important Health Information 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 and CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the EPA s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at Contaminant Source Information 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, radioactive 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: (A) Microbial contaminants such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) 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. (E) 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, EPA prescribes regulations, that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water that 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 potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA s Safe Drinking Water Hotline Terms and Abbreviations In the data tables you will find many terms and abbreviations that may not be familiar. To help you better understand these terms, we ve provided the following definitions: Action Level (AL) the concentration of a contaminant, which if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) 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. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL) the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG) the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Non-Detect (ND) means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Not Required (NR) Secondary Contaminants with sample results below the MCL are not required to be reported. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (µg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Picocuries per Liter (pci/l) a measure of radioactivity in water. Variances and Exemptions: State or EPA permission not to meet an MCL or a treatment technique under certain conditions. NOTE: MCLs are set at stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drink two liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect. All Systems 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. JEA is responsible 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 two 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 EPA s Safe Drinking Water Hotline, , or at JEA has in place an Annual Water Resource Master Plan for all water resources. Included in this plan are strategic capital improvements over the next 20 years which will support additional capacity for growth, reduce costs, protect natural resources and provide increased reliability while continuing to supply clean, safe water to our customers. Planned improvements to the north and west portions of the service area include a new regional water treatment plant (Northwest Regional) and the expansion of two existing smaller plants (Westlake and West Nassau Regional in Nassau County). In the south and east portion of the service area, JEA plans to construct two additional regional water treatment plants (Greenland and RiverTown). Several new major transmission system piping improvements ranging from 16 to 30 inches in diameter are planned throughout the service area as well. These projects will help protect the aquifer, support future growth and increase reliability. JEA began constructing transmission improvements outlined in the Total Water Management Plan in Construction includes 24 to 36 inch diameter water pipe to convey up to 24 million gallons per day from west to east across the St Johns River. Construction of this project is scheduled to be complete in Monitoring and Reporting Compliance Information JEA Major Grid Variance: The St. Johns Forest WTP has two pairs of wells (Floridan and shallow) which are pumped simultaneously to blend the water to reduce sulfates that are naturally occurring in the Floridan aquifer in northern St. Johns County. The St. Johns River Water Management District has reduced the use of shallow wells due to the impacts on surrounding wetlands. EPA and available health data indicates that chronic exposure to low levels of sulfates is not harmful to health. The current MCL for sulfate is 250 mg/l and is based on aesthetic effects (i.e. taste and odor). The variance is in effect until such time that a sulfate level of 500 mg/l is either exceeded or FDEP adopts a primary MCL for sulfates that is more restrictive than 500 mg/l. JEA Water Resource Master Plan Pipe along Arlington Expressway ready to be pulled under the river. As water from our current source of supply, the Floridan aquifer, becomes more limited, JEA continues to investigate the feasibility of alternative sources of water. JEA is committed to conservation and the use of reclaimed water to reduce how much water may be needed from these more expensive alternative water supplies. 7 8

6 Florida-Friendly Landscapes Frequently Asked Questions Why is there chlorine in my water? Why does my water have a rotten egg odor? Chlorine is required by the EPA to be maintained throughout public drinking water distribution systems in order to protect health. Chlorination of drinking water, used to kill or inactivate harmful organisms which can cause diseases, has been called the most significant health advance of the 20th century. Millions of people, mostly children, die each year in developing countries due to diseases that could be prevented by the chlorination of drinking water. JEA monitors over 300 separate locations throughout the water distribution system each month to ensure the proper minimum health-protecting levels of chlorine are maintained. The rotten egg odor in water is hydrogen sulfide and is produced by bacteria that break down naturally-occurring sulfate in the water. These bacteria usually thrive in the warm environment of hot water heaters. Increasing the water temperature to 160 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours will kill the bacteria in the water heater. Then the water heater should be well flushed before using again to supply the house. Be sure to turn the temperature back down too! Why do you flush hydrants and water mains? While water gushing out of a hydrant looks wasteful, it s actually a vital step in maintaining water quality and protecting our distribution system. In order to ensure high quality drinking water, the water lines must be flushed periodically during periods of low water use. This allows freshly treated water to move through the pipes and prevents minerals from accumulating in the distribution system. The end result is fresher drinking water at your tap. In an effort to prevent the water from entering the storm water system, JEA workers try to flush the lines onto grassy areas when available. Should I install home water treatment equipment? Since the water we deliver to you meets all federal and state drinking water standards, the decision to install a point-of-use (POU) or point-of-entry (POE) home water treatment device is a personal one. If you are concerned with the aesthetic qualities of your water, such as taste, odor, and hardness, you might consider a home treatment unit. These systems can cost thousands of dollars, so before investing in a costly unit, make sure that the system you intend to purchase can address your needs. Additionally, it should be certified by NSF International, the Water Quality Association, or Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. to ensure that the manufacturers performance claims are tested and validated. Finally, be sure to follow the directions for cleaning and maintaining the system in order to prevent the growth of potentially harmful bacteria.

Here s a startling fact: 30 to 40 percent of the water JEA pumps from the Floridan aquifer goes to water landscapes. That s a lot of one natural resource to use on grass and the reason why the St. Johns River Water Management District wants everyone to conserve the aquifer by planting Florida-Friendly yards. These landscapes don t need as much water as your traditional emerald green lawn because they don t have as much thirsty grass. In fact, some Florida-Friendly yards have no grass at all, only lush plantings covered by thick layers of mulch to help keep the ground moist. The key to a Florida-Friendly yard is planting the right plant in the right place and covering the ground around that plant with a lot of mulch. Most people who learn about Florida-Friendly landscapes are surprised how lush they can be. Once they realize this, they eagerly dig up some of their grass to add mulched planting beds and a porous walkway or patio. The best place to learn more about Florida-Friendly Landscapes is a website put together by several state agencies: There s an online tool there to help you design your own Florida-Friendly yard, and a database to help you put the right plant in the right place. LawnSmart Irrigation Evaluation You still need to water a Florida-Friendly landscape, but not nearly as much as a traditional one. If you have a pop-up irrigation system for your lawn, be sure your controller is programmed correctly so you re not overwatering. JEA offers a free LawnSmart Irrigation Evaluation where auditors will come to your home and program your controller if you ask them to. Auditors will also measure your acreage of irrigated landscape and each irrigation zone and Experts say residents should water enter that information into a software program developed at the University of Florida. This will just twice a week during daylight determine the flow rate for each of your irrigation saving time and once a week the zones. That s the amount of time an irrigation zone rest of the year. Put down ½ inch of needs to run in order to deliver the optimum amount of water to your grass. water each time you irrigate and LawnSmart To sign up for a JEA LawnSmart Irrigation Evaluation you must use JEA potable or reclaimed water and your pop-up irrigation system must be functional. You need to be home between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday or make arrangements to have someone at your residence for the appointment. your lawn will do just fine. To schedule your free LawnSmart Irrigation Evaluation call: Remember: Northeast Florida residents must follow water restrictions mandated by the St. Johns River Water Management District. During daylight saving time homeowners with odd numbered or no address can water Wednesday and Saturday. Homeowners with even numbered addresses can water Thursday and Sunday. And commercial properties can water Tuesday and Friday. 10
