Election for School Board to be held June 5
   Wall  School  will  be  holding  an election on Tuesday, June 5.     There are three incumbents and one  candidate  running  for  three positions for the school board. Scot Eisenbraun  who  is  the  current school board president, Pam Johnson vice-president, Todd Trask and Angela Lytle.    Incumbent  and  candidates  answered  questions  concerning themselves  and  how  they  would serve on the Wall School Board My name is Pam Johnson and I have been married to Dick Johnson for 24 years. We moved to Wall in 1998, and I truly believe we made a great move for our family. We have two daughters, both graduating from Wall High School, and both attending South Dakota State University. I work at First Interstate Bank and been on the Wall School Board for six years. What motivates you to want to become a board member or want to retain your seat on the school board? I made the decision to run again for the Board of Education because of the continual budget concerns we have. I feel I am fiscally minded, and with my experience, I can help make these difficult decisions. Also, with the uncertainty in the Impact Aid program, we need to keep a very close eye on where all the dollars are going. We cannot continue to expect to live off of Impact Aid to balance our budget. What attributes are essential for successful school board members? In order to be a good board member, a person should be able to step back and look at the whole picture and stay neutral until you have sufficient knowledge to make an educated decision based on what is best for the students, staff and public. The Board needs to work together with the Administration in problem solving and support the decisions that are made. Being a good board member shouldn’t mean micro-managing every decision that needs to be made; that is why the School Board hires the superintendent. And above all, keep the children first. The Board is there to make sure the children are provided the best education possible with the tools they have to work with. What do you see as the board's roles and responsibilities? The Board of Education has several functions, such as hiring the superintendent, overseeing development of and upholding the district policies the Board has approved, adopting and staying within the budget, and overseeing the facilities and curriculum. Board members need to work together as a team with the superintendent to make decisions that are best for the students, district and community. What role does policy play/have in the functioning of the board? The development and enforcing of policy is one of the many functions of a school board. It is a constant work in progress and policies have to be updated as the school environment changes. Our Board does the majority of the policy changes in the summer months and invites any input. It is then the Administration’s job to enforce those policies. What is your vision for education in this community? My hope for the education in our community is that education would continue to be the most important reason for our children to go to school. I know that athletics and extra curricular activities are important for a well-rounded student, but we need to remember that education and academics must come first. Our school does a great job of preparing our children for post secondary education and beyond, but I would like to see our test scores continue to rise. What is the most important responsibility of a school board? I feel the most important responsibility of a school board is to maintain a good working relationship and have trust in the superintendent, provide a quality education for our children, and keep our budget in line. Can you think of any district expenses that should be cut? I feel that our district has cut as many expenses possible while still providing quality education to the children in our district. We cut our budget substantially two years ago and if we aren’t careful to continually monitor our spending, we could be back to where we started. I do feel we are going to have to think outside the box and find innovative ways to fund and provide education in these difficult times. board needs to make sure that policies are being updated with the changes that are occurring in the community, state and federal levels. The policies need to layout a clear plan for the administration to follow so that district intent, goals and objectives can be met. Clear policies also keep the community informed of what the district is trying to accomplish. What is your vision for education in this community? Right now I believe that our school is just barely meeting the state requirement for time spent in school. Considering how much instructional time the students miss because of extra-curricular activities and church release time, I feel that the district should move back to a five day week and still keep the same daily hours in school. I know that the school is required to let students out for religious instruction, but have parents ever realized that by sending their child to church school, the student is missing 1⁄4 of the instructional time for that subject for the year. That adds up to a lot of missed learning opportunity. I don’t want to do away with religious education by any means but maybe parents could talk to their church leaders and have the religious education time start an hour later in the afternoon. Two other things that have bothered me over the years are that sometimes teachers have students correct each others’ papers. I feel that this is the teacher’s responsibility. I believe that when teachers correct the papers they get feedback on what concepts the kids are having a hard time grasping. The second thing that bothers me is letting students retake a test or finish up a test at a later time if they didn’t have time in class to finish it. Students need to learn to study for their tests the first time around. They won’t get the opportunity in college to retake tests so why get them started on that thought process in high school. What is the most important responsibility of a school board? In my opinion the most important thing for the school board to do is provide all the students with the best learning environment possible with the resources that are available. Can you think of any district expenses that should be cut? I must admit that I haven’t seen a detailed balance sheet, so I don’t know right off of any expenditure that needs to be cut. However, I will say once again that it was an irresponsible use of school funds to pay John Hess an extra $1544.00 in addition to his regular coaching wages as the boys’ varsity coach and his wages as the girls’ varsity coach. The teachers aren’t paid extra for giving up their free time to plan and correct papers after school. John should not have been paid extra on top of his coaching salary for giving up his free time to coach two teams. I believe that the school board and superintendent wanted the community to think that if they didn’t give John the extra wages that the school wouldn’t have had a boy’s varsity basketball coach. However, I know that two other people inquired about the coaching position and neither was given an interview. I also strongly disagree with hiring a new football coach and creating a teaching position for him when the school already has three varsity level football coaches within the system. The $37,100.00 salary for this new teaching position could have been used elsewhere in the system. I also don’t know if this teaching and football coach position was advertised as being open in our district. I could be wrong but I believe the superintendent is required to advertise teaching positions that are open if he is not going to fill the position with current staff members. I think it is time to make some changes to the school board. What attributes are essential for successful school board members? To keep an open mind. What do you see as the board's roles and responsibilities? To help our executive staff to keep our school district at a high level of excellence. What role does policy play/have in the functioning of the board? The policy that we have in place helps guide our staff and board in the day-to-day operations of our district. What is your vision for education in this community? I think that our community is very blessed to have an administration and school staff whose primary goal is to keep improving and I would like to continue to be a part of that. What is the most important responsibility of a school board? To help and work with the adminstration. Can you think of any district expenses that should be cut? This would be a very tough call at the present time. I would hope we can continue to hold the line on our budget and not have to cut staff or courses. As everyone knows the biggest expense to any business is salary and as a board over the last couple of years we have had little or no increase other than what the State has passed on to us.
Angela Lytle
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I grew up on a ranch north of Rapid City. I attended high school in Sturgis and now have a B.S. in accounting. I currently live on a ranch with my husband of 21 years, Rusty Lytle. We have four sons; Dalton, Zeb, Kale, and Clancy. I’m very lucky to have been a stay-at-home mom. I think it was really important for me to be home with my kids so as to instill in them my values. Growing up I was involved in 4-H, FFA and Rodeo. I’m currently a member of the Wall Rodeo Booster Club, a 4-H leader, and I taught Catechism at St. Patrick’s church for several years. I enjoy sewing, reading, gardening and occasionally barrel racing. What motivates you to want to become a board member or want to retain your seat on the school board? I feel that it is important as a good citizen to not just complain about a problem but to jump in and help fix it. For the last few years it seems that the current school board has been doing things here and there that I don’t always feel is in the best interest of the students. I don’t like that they write a policy and then ignore it at times. An example of this is hosting an alcohol party for the graduates, when track and golf season was not over. This violates training rules. If you’re not going to follow a policy, why write it? I feel that some current board members are overstepping their boundaries by micromanaging and trying to do the job of the administration. When did it become the job of school board members and a community member to do the interviewing for positions in the school system? I thought that was the job of the administration. The final episode that made me decide to run for the school board happened last fall when some upper classmen beat up on some eighth graders with clubs and where punished by having to apologize. I would think the eighth graders don’t feel that justice was served. The bullies should have at the very least been removed from the football team. What attributes are essential for successful school board members? The SD School Board handbook lists fourteen attributes that they consider to be essential to being an effective board member. I agree with them and feel that I possess these attributes. I would approach the school board position with honesty, integrity, and a willingness to listen. I know that the decisions made should be best for all the students. Since I’m being elected to this position, I have to be open to discussing with the community what they want accomplished in the district. I won’t hold a grudge when I don’t agree with the other board members decisions. What do you see as the board’s roles and responsibilities? I see the role of the school board to be writing clear policies for the administration to enact, hiring a superintendent, adopting a budget, planning and goal setting for the school system, overseeing the school properties, and working with the superintendent and staff to set instructional policies. Last I believe that the board should always delegate the tasks of recruiting, recommending for hire, evaluating, promoting, and disciplining staff (in accordance with board policy) to the superintendent. What role does policy play/have in the functioning of the board? Policy writing is one of the most important things the school board will do. In order for the school district to run smoothly the school
Todd Trask
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I am a graduate of Wall High School and life long resident of the area. What motivates you to want to become a board member or want to retain your seat on the school board? I believe that everyone has a responsibility to give something back to the community they live in and try to make things better.

Local board hosts ASBSD director
by Del Bartels    Members of the Haakon School District and the Wall School District  boards  of  education  met  in Philip, Wednesday, May 16, to discuss  finances,  politics  and  other concerns.    Wade Pogany, executive director of the Associated School Boards of South  Dakota,  headed  the  informational  meeting.  “My  goal  is  to get  a  discussion  going  among board members; info gathering on thinking  by  board  members  and thinking  out  west  here,”  said Pogany.    The ASBSD is putting its influence  in  support  of  the  upcoming Initiated Measure 15, which would increase  state  general  sales  and use  taxes  for  additional  kindergarten  through  12  public  education  and  Medicaid  funding.  “As property  tax  keeps  moving,  at some point people say “No more,” said  Pogany.  “It’s  creating  an  inequity issue – have and have nots –  a  real  disparity.  An  opt-out  is easier said than done. Would you rather  have  property  taxes  increase and spread over the state, or have a sales tax increase?”    Mark  Nelson,  Haakon  School District  board  member,  said  he cut. We’ve never been able to look to the future with money.” Pogany agreed, “Many school districts said at least the first two years would be  needed  to  get  them  out  of  the hole.”    Hamill said, “I agree, a lot of the mentality is the state has to provide  for  an  adequate  education. That depends on what you think is adequate.”    Nelson  said,  “A  lot  of  our younger teachers with no real ties to the community get three or four years experience, then move to a different  state  that  pays  a  lot more.”    The ASBSD addresses other legislative  issues.  Todd  Trask,  Wall School  District  board  member, wants the ASBSD to back legislation  that  goes  for  “local  control, with some teeth in it.” Trask would like school and public lands money to  stay  in  the  county  where  the land is. He would like Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) funds – federal  payments  to  local  governments  that  help  offset  losses  in property taxes due to nontaxable federal lands within their boundaries)  that  goes  to  counties  to  be split  some  way  with  schools. Pogany said, “But then you’re taking from other entities. That would be a hard hill to die on in a battle with county commissioners.”    Nelson  said,  “Some  people  like the  merit  pay,  but  that  puts  a tremendous burden on our administrative staff.” Hamill agreed, “It wouldn’t change our good quality one iota, so why put our teachers in contention with each other?”    Rieckman believes other government agencies “are stretching the Department of Education too far.”    Pogany summarized various attempts over the years to get a financial accountability bill passed. “It’s  a  matter  of  trust.  We  have elected school boards, open meetings,  transparency  –  let  them (school boards) do their jobs.”    On  a  different  legal  topic, Pogany warned the audience that sexting is now considered a criminal offense, even for minors. How will school boards handle the issue when  it  comes  up?  Also,  though most school districts have anti-bullying  policies,  they  should  check the wording to align more closely with state requirements.

had been talked to by local taxpayers.  If  a  sales  tax  goes  through, then will an opt-out also be asked for?”    Pogany  estimated  that  the amount of funds from Measure 15 would be approximately $700 per enrolled student. “You are trying to keep the cuts as minimal as possible,  trying  to  do  everything  you can not to hurt the children. What could you do with $700 per kid; not a  wish  list  but  a  have  to?  Right now we are in survival mode. The schools  in  the  state  are  so  far  in the hole we can’t do things that are needed  by  the  students,”  said Pogany.    Pogany said that the funds from Measure  15  have  no  strings  attached. The measure does not affect higher education, just kindergarten through 12th grade. It does have Medicaid on board; pooled together, to work together to leverage together for a shared need.    Vonda  Hamill,  Haakon  School District board member, said, “People really need to know this is not like  the  gambling  money.  It  will come to the schools.”    Anita Peterson, Haakon School District  board  member,  said, “Some  people  are  saying  this  is helping  the  legislators  out.  They don’t have to raise taxes, the  vote will.” Peterson is on the 18-member  board  of  directors  of  the ASBSD.    “I know this will help balance us out,” said Dennis Rieckman, Wall superintendent. “It’s been cut, cut,

Memorial  Day  was  windy  and chilly  —  we’ve  seen  that  before, too.  We had misty rain Thursday, Friday and Saturday but it didn’t add up much. We could use more rain. and  Cary  Tines  residence.  Cary, Pam along with grandkids Lainee and  Johnny  traveled  to  Douglas, Wy for Pam’s dad’s 80th birthday party over the weekend.    Shirrise Linn was in Rapid City on Thursday. While there, she had lunch  with  Tiff  Knuppe  and Melissa  Byrne.  Jen  Magee  and kids from Glenrock, WY arrived at the  Linn’s  Thursday  evening  to spend a few days. Clyde Arneson was  a  supper  guest  on  Friday night.  Katie  Wilsey  spent  Saturday afternoon at the Linn’s. Kassandra Linn enjoyed a late afternoon  volleyball  game  at  the  Pat and RoseMary Trask’s on Sunday.    Charlotte,  Laura  and  Katie Wilsey  arrived  at  the  John  and Jean  home  Friday  night  so  they would  be  there  for  branding  on Saturday.  Unfortunately,  they were rained out and had to postpone  until  this  Tuesday.  Charlie and Carol Linn and Bill O’Krepte of  Rapid  City  also  came  out,  but went back on account of the rain.    Carol  Anders  and  Jo  Strong

Countryside News
Submitted by Lola Joyce Riggins 837-2053    Greetings…  Well  people,  finally  some  news  again.  It  hasn't been an uneventful time. Kadoka got a storm that took the roof off the  Hogan's  Hardware  store  and striped the awning from the front of  the  old  Secondhand  or  Drug Store  straight  west  across  the main  street.  Residents  are  so thankful it wasn't more severe on the  town.  It  sucked  or  blew  the roof off the north side and mangled it pretty good. It dumped the old store roof on Main Street and the town people worked hard to clear the road. I found two nails where I walked hopefully to save flat tires.    And last week, I joined relatives and loved ones and became blessed with a new great-granddaughter. Emmarie Jaymes Fallon and Bob Clark welcomed a new baby sister for Aspen Alyvias.    I  owe  an  apology  to  Mary Paulsen because she has sent me a card almost every week to help me get  news  in.  She  is  a  blessing.  I mislaid  her  last  correspondence and have looked high and low so after  calling  her  I  am  going  to catch up.    On May 1, Mary helped with the judging  of  Famous  Faces  at  the Lead-Deadwood  school.  Her  son Tom is a teacher in the school system.    For  Mary's  birthday,  the Paulsen  guys,  Darren,  Delmer, Dawson,  Dreyson  and  Tom  and daughter-in-law  Jackie  met  in Rapid  City  and  treated  Mary  to birthday  supper  on  April  27. Happy belated greetings Mary.    George and Lorna Moore drove to Belvidere, Saturday, to attend a birthday dinner for Sage Calson's first  birthday.  May  the  Countryside wish Sage a belated wish.    Mary Paulsen substitute taught at the Big White School, Monday, May  14th.  and  the  Wall  school, Wednesday, the 16th.    Dennis  and  Kay  Sieler  joined family members at the Cedar Pass Lodge  in  observance  to  Mother's day. Always a great day for family members to get together and enjoy spending the day together.    Delbert and  Mary Paulsen left early  Sunday  morning  for  Ft. Pierre  and  attended  Mass  at  St. John's  and  then  drove  on  to  Holabird  to  pick  up  their  new  herd bull they had purchased from the Bar JV Hereford Bull Ranch (before) then returned home.    The  branding  crew  worked  at the Dennis Sieler Ranch and then Ruth, Rhyden and Faith stayed so Travis  and  Amanda  Frink  could have a evening out in observance of their wedding anniversary.    Delmer and Mary Paulsen made a  business  and  shopping  trip  to Rapid City and upon coming home, finished putting in more garden.    Most acquired a nice inch to two inches of rain of very welcome rain in the area.    Delmer  and  Mary  Paulsen joined the many friends and families to attend Graduation exerices for the Wall school students.    This has been a very unsettling and  busy  week.  I  am  ready  for things  to  settle  down  so  I  can.  I know there is a lot not being said.    Thought: Everyone faces challenges in life. It is a mater of how you learn to overcome them and use them to your advantage. Ingenrity, plus courage, plus work, equals miracles.

With The Bible
Berean Bible Society PO Box 756 Germantown, WI 53022 www.bereanbiblesociety.org
by Cornelius R. Stam "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief" (I Tim. 1:15). Of all Paul's "faithful sayings," this is perhaps the most wonderful, and the one through which most people have found the joy of sins forgiven. The subject is that "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." Why else would Christ have had to leave His glory in heaven if it were not, as the Bible says, to come to earth in human form to represent us in the payment for sin? And, thank God, He paid the full price for the sins of all men, for it was not a mere man who died on Calvary's cross. So complete was His payment that Paul could exclaim: "He came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief." Paul, himself, though once Christ's chief enemy on earth, had now been saved by Him and, had come to know the joy of sins forgiven. The great tragedy is that so many people do not feel their condition to be hopeless apart from Christ. They have not yet seen how far they come short of the glory and holiness of God. They know they are sinners, but they do not yet feel that their condition is so hopeless that they need a Savior. Thus they keep trying, trying, trying -- and failing, failing, failing! How much wiser we are to confess our sins before God -- to take the place of sinners, so that He can save us. This is the first step to heaven. When we have done this we are in a position to accept God's offer of full pardon and justification through Christ, who died to pay the penalty for our sins. Since none are perfect and all have sinned, "this is," indeed, "a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." Why not believe God's Word, accept Christ as your Savior and be saved today?
In time for Memorial Day, Badlands Quilters delivered five patriotic quilts to the Veterans Hospital at Fort Meade. The quilt tops were made during the groups’ Weekend Getaway last March. The hospital will give the quilts to veterans in the Hospice Unit. ~Courtesy Photo

FUND TOTAL: 5,410.19 CHECKING ACCOUNT TOTAL: 53,833.02 Glen Lakner was present to address the board about an auction being held in the school gym. He questioned the policy that allows activities such as auctions and funerals to take place. After discussion on this topic it was determined the policy would be reviewed. Angela Lytle addressed the board with a couple questions about the above topic. She wondered whether the gym floor covering was interrupting physical education of the students. Rieckman responded that all physical education classes have been held and kids have still been on the gym floor during lunch. Lytle also asked how much was charged for rent for the auction. Rieckman responded that the policy was followed at $200 each day of the auction. Angela Lytle and Terri Harris addressed the board about supporting their plan to hold an alcohol and drug free post graduation party. They gave information on what other towns/schools offer as an alternative to the traditional post graduation party. They are funding this party with money that the senior parent group had left over from the post prom party. Lytle and Harris asked Rieckman for permission to attend a senior class meeting to get information about this party to the students. Rieckman was in agreement and the board was in support of this activity. Randall Poste, the district’s technology coordinator, addressed the board about federal changes to the Children’s Internet Protection Policy. Our district has always been in compliance, but now we must make changes to stay in compliance. By July 1, 2012, we need to have an internet safety policy in place. In addition, all devices which the school owns will be filtered on and off campus. An internet safety course must also be provided to all staff/students on an annual basis. The first reading was held for the internet safety policy. Williams asked questions about the policy and noted some minor areas to correct. Next, Rieckman reviewed the SDHSAA proposed election items. He noted the board needed to choose a candidate to support for the Division I Representative position. They also needed to decide whether or not to support open enrolled students sitting out of varsity athletics for one year. 4672. Trask moved to support Mark Hofer of Sioux Falls Roosevelt.

CITy OF WALL MUNICIPAL WATER WATER QUALITy Last year, the City of Wall monitored your drinking water for possible contaminants. This brochure is a snapshot of the quality of the water that we provided last year. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state standards. We are committed to providing you with information because informed customers are our best allies. WATER SOURCE We serve more than 766 customers an average of 165,300 gallons of water per day. Our water is groundwater that we produce from local wells. The state has performed an assessment of our source water and they have determined that the relative susceptibility rating for the Wall public water supply system is low. For more information about your water and information on opportunities to participate in public meetings, call (605)279-2563 and ask for Jeff Clark. ADDITIONAL 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 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, 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, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. •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, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits 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 potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (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 Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants can be obtained by calling the Environment Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791). 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. The City of Wall public water supply system 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 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. DETECTED CONTAMINANTS The attached table lists all the drinking water contaminants that we detected during the 2011 calendar year. The presence of these contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. Unless otherwise noted, the data presented in this table is from testing done January 1 – December 31, 2011. The state requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of the data, though representative of the water quality, is more than one year old. 2011 TABLE OF DETECTED CONTAMINANTS FOR WALL (EPA ID 0417) TERMS AND ABBREVIATIONS USED IN THIS TABLE: • 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 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. • Action Level (AL): the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. For Lead and Copper, 90% of the samples must be below the AL. • Treatment Technique (TT): A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. For turbidity, 95% of samples must be less than 0.3 NTU. UNITS: •MFL: million fibers per liter •pCi/l: picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity) •ppt: parts per trillion, or nanograms per liter •mrem/year: millirems per year (a measure of radiation absorbed by the body) •ppm: parts per million, or milligrams per liter (mg/l) •ppq: parts per quadrillion, or picograms per liter •NTU: Nephelometric Turbidity Units •ppb: parts per billion, or micrograms per liter (ug/l) •pspm: positive samples per month Highest Level Allowed (AL) AL=1.3 AL=15 Highest Level Allowed (MCL) 2 4 Major Source of Contaminant Corrosion of household plumbing systems; erosion of natural deposits; leaching from wood preservatives. Corrosion of household plumbing systems; erosion of natural deposits. Major Source of Contaminant Discharge of drilling wastes; discharge from metal refineries; erosion of natural deposits. Erosion of natural deposits; water additive which promotes strong teeth; discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT yOUR DRINKING WATER Elevated Fluoride Levels Detected This is an alert about your drinking water and a cosmetic dental problem that might affect children under nine years of age. At low levels, fluoride can help prevent cavities, but children drinking water containing more than 2 milligrams per liter (mg/l) of fluoride may develop cosmetic discoloration of their permanent teeth (dental fluorosis). The drinking water provided by your community water system (City of Wall) has a fluoride concentration of 2.4 mg/l. Dental fluorosis in its moderate or severe forms, may result in a brown staining and or pitting of the permanent teeth. This problem occurs only in developing teeth, before they erupt from the gums. Children under nine should be provided with alternative sources of drinking water or water that has been treated to remove the fluoride to avoid the possibility of staining and pitting of their permanent teeth. You may also want to contact your dentist about proper use by young children of fluoride-containing products. Older children and adults may safely drink the water. Drinking water containing more than 4 mg/l of fluoride (the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s drinking water standard) can increase your risk of developing bone disease. Your drinking water does not contain more than 4 mg/l of fluoride, but we’re required to notify you when we discover that the fluoride levels in your drinking water exceeds 2 mg/l because of this cosmetic dental problem. For more information, please call Jeff Clark of City of Wall Water Department at 279-2563. Some home water treatment units are also available to remove fluoride from drinking water. To learn more about available home water treatment units, you may call NSF International at 1-877-8-NSF-HELP. 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 notice is being sent to you by the City of Wall. State Water System ID# 0417.
