John and I kept a bag of candy with us, and when the children found one of the empty rogue eggs, we would take it and magically fill it for them. But then they began, to realize that if they emptied the lull ones an(] brought them back to us, we wouldn't know any better and would magically fill those, too. Pretty soon our bags of candy were empty and the children were all hyper. We hadn't planned to give them all of the candy; it just worked out that way. My little granddaughter came and climbed on my lap so I could wash off the chocolate. "Grandpa," she said, "I'm glad you' re forgetful." I smiled and hugged her. I guess every cloud has a Silver lining.

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 the 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 (800-426-4791).• Microbiological Highest No. of Positive Samples No Detected Results were Found in the Calendar Year of 2012 TEST RESULTS Date Pr!nted: 3-4-2013 NE3112904 MCL MCLG Ukely Source of Contamination ' Violations Present Lead and Copper COPPER, FREE LEAD Monitoring Peri 90th Percentile 2008-2010 0.559 2OO8-2010 1 Regulated Contaminants Range Unlt AL 0.0427- ppm 1.3 1.17 Collection Date Highest ppb Unit Value ARSENIC 12-06-2011 3.14 3.14 ppb BARIUM 02-19-2008 0.238 0.238 ppm CHROMIUM 02-19'-2008 20.7 20.7 ppb FLUORIDE 02-19-2OO8 0.27 0.27 ppm NITRATE-NITRITE 05-08-2012 8.17 6,75 - ppm 8.17 Radiological Contaminants Collection Highest Range Unit Date Value COMBINED RADIUM (-226 11-19-2012 3.2 3.2 pCi/I 5 & -228) COMBINED URANIUM 08-21-2012 11 9.1 - 11 GROSS ALPHA, INCL. 11-19-2012 14.9 5.4-14.9 RADON & U Sites Over AL 0 1,18- 2.06 15 0 Range Likely Source of Contamination Erosion of natural deposits; Leaching from wood preservatives; Corrosion of household plumbing.

Type Category Analyte Compliance Period No Violations Occurred in the Calendar Year of 2012 The City of Superior has taken the following actions to return to compliance with the Nebraska Safe Drinking Water Act: There are no additional required health effects notices. Source Water Assessment Availability: The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) has completed the Source Water Assessment. nduded in the assessment is a Wetlhead Protection Area map, potential contaminant source inventory, vulnerability rating, and source water protection information. To view the Source Water Assessment or for more information please contact the person named on the cover of this report or NDEQ at (402) 471-6988 or go to In order to ensure thattap 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. Sources of Drinking Water: The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water} include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs springs, and groundwater wells. As water tlaveis over the surface d 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. The source of water used by City of Superior is ground water. 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• • Ino'ganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial, or domeslic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. , Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water 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 storm water runoff, and septic systems. , Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking Water Health Notes: Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immune-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 eldedy, and infants can be particularly at dsk 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 Cq/ptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). infants and young children are typically more vulnerable to lead in drinking water than the general population. It is possible that lead levels at your home may be higher than at other homes in the community as a result of materials used in your home's plumbing• If you are concerned about elevated lead levels in your home's water, you may wish to have your water tested. Flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using your tap water will dear the line of any lead that may be leached into the water while the line was idle. Additional information is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791) or the Department of Health and Human Services-Division of Public Health-Office of Drinking Water (402,171-2541) The city of Superior is required to test forthe following contaminants: Coliform Bacteria, Antimony, Arsenic, Asbestos, Barium, Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Nitrate, Nitrite, Selenium, Sodium, Thallium, Alachlor, Atrazine, Benzo(a)pyrene, Carbofuran, Chlordane, Dalapon, Di(2-ethylhexyl)adipate, Dibromochtoropropane, Dinoseb, Di(2-Ethythexyl)phthalate, Diquat, 2,4-D, Endothall, Endrin, Ethylene dibromide, Gtyphosete, Heptachlor, Heptachlor, epoxide, Hexachlorobenzene, Hexachlorocyclopentadlene, Lindane, Methoxychlor, Oxamyl (Vydate), Pentachlorophenol, Pidoram, Polychlorinated, biphenyls, Simazine, Toxaphene, Dioxln, Silvex, Benzene, Carbon Tetrachloride, o.Dichl#robenzene, Para.Oichlorobenzene, 12-Dichlorethane, 1.1-Dichloroathylene, Cis-l,2,,Dichloroethylene, Trans-l,2-Dichloroathylene, Dichloromethane, 1,2-Oichloropropane, Ethylbenzene, Monochlorobenzene, 12,4-Trichlorobenzene, 1,1,1-Trichloroethane, 1,1,2.Trichloroethane, Trichloroethylene, Vinyl Chloride, Styrene, Tetrachloroethylene, Toluene, Xylenes (total), Gross Alpha (minus uranium & Radium 226), Radium 226 plus Radium 228, Sulfate, Chloroform, 8romodichloromethane, Chlorodibromomethane, 8romoform, Chlorobenzene, m-Dichloroben zene, 1,1 -Dichtoropropene, 1, l-Oichlorcethane, 1,1,22.Tetrachlorethane, 1,2-Dichloropropane, Chloromethane, Bromomethane, 1,2,3-Trichloropropane, 1,1,1,2-Tetrachloroethane Chloroethane, 2,2-Dichloropropane, o-Chlorotoluene, p-Chlorotoluene, Bromobenzene, 1,3-Dichloropropene, Aldrin, Butachlor, Carbaryl, Dicamba, Dieldrink 3.Hydroxycarbofuran, Methomyl, Metolachlor, Metribuzin, Propachlor. Note: The state requires monitoring of certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Therefore, some of this data may be more than one year old. MC L (Maximum Contaminant Level): The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water• MCLs are set as dose to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. MC LG (Maximum Contaminant level Goal:The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected dsk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
