2016 Water Quality Report
This report covers the drinking water quality for the village of Dryden for the 2016 calendar year. This information is a snapshot
of the quality of the water that we provided to you in 2016. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains,
and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state standards.

Your water comes from 2 groundwater wells, each over 96 feet deep. The State performed an assessment of our source water to
determine the susceptibility or the relative potential of contamination. The susceptibility rating is on a seven-tiered scale from "very-
low" to "veryhigh" based on geologic sensitivity, well construction, water chemistry and contamination sources. The susceptibility
of our source is moderate on well #3. There has been no assessment performed on well #4 at this time.

There is no significant source of contamination in our water supply since the start-up of the arsenic removal system in May 2008.

If you would like to know more about the report, please contact James Honnold at 5602 Main Street, Dryden Ml 48428 or by phone

More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline *** Unregulated contaminants are those for which EPA has not established drinking water standards. Monitoring helps EPA to

Sources of drinking water: The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds,
reservoirs, springs, and wells. Our water comes from wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it From January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016:
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:

Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may 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
From April 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016:
runoff, industrial 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 and residential uses.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or b e the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
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.

We will update this report annually and will keep you informed of any problems that may occur throughout the year, as they happen.
Copies are available at the village of Dryden's village office located at 5602 Main Street, Dryden Ml 48428. This report will not be
sent to you.

We invite public participation in decisions that affect drinking water quality. Regular council meetings are held the first Tuesday of
the month at the village office at 7:00 pm. The village office is located at 5602 Main Street, Dryden Ml 48428. For more information
about your water, or the contents of this report, contact James Honnold at 810-796-2207 or visit the village's website at www.vil-
lageofdryden. com. For more information about safe drinking water, visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at www.
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 regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water
which provide the same protection for public health.
