11 Dec Lake Mills Light and Water Radium Facts

Lake Mills’ water supply is safe for drinking, bathing, cooking and all uses. Lake Mills Light & Water put the notice in the newspaper regarding the radium level in well #4 promptly when information about the radium levels were known.  This was done in conjunction with, and  according to, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources protocol. The radium was found in one of three wells in Lake Mills. The purpose of the DNR notice protocol is to initiate an investigation into the source and the most effective mitigation process to reduce exposure to radium and ensure radium levels do not increase – the notice is not issued because the level is dangerous. Lake Mills Light & Water is working with the DNR and water quality experts to immediately address this issue.  The investigation into the source of the radium and possible mitigation techniques is underway. Radium (Ra) is a naturally occurring radioactive element that is present in varying amounts in rocks and soil within the earth’s crust. Low levels of radium in nature are normal. No data shows that long-term exposure to low levels is harmful. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has established a maximum contaminant level (MCL) for radium in public water supplies of 5 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L).  LML&W well #4 has a rolling average of 5.5 pCi/L. (A rolling average means the average level over the most recent four water samples.) The MCL for radium has been set well below levels for which health effects have been observed and is therefore assumed to be protective of public health. A number of treatment methods are available to remove radium from water. Ion exchange, lime softening, and reverse osmosis are the most common and can remove up to 90 percent of radium present. Water softeners (ion exchange) can often remove 90 percent of radium present along with water hardness....

08 Dec Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

CITY OF LAKE MILLS POLICE DEPARTMENT   Date:  December 8, 2017 For more information contact: Sergeant Alan Witte Lake Mills Police Department to crack down on drunken motorists during the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign As law enforcement officials, one of our most difficult duties is having to inform families that a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a crash. It’s especially difficult when the tragedy is easily preventable - such as when someone makes the dangerous and irresponsible decision to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while impaired. To help prevent needless tragedies this holiday season, Lake Mills Police Department will join law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign that runs from December 15 through New Year’s Day. Officers will be doing extra patrols for longer hours - not simply to make arrests or issue citations - but to encourage voluntary compliance with traffic laws that protect us all. As motorists and citizens, we all play an important role. Every time you travel, make sure everyone is buckled up. Watch your speed, and always driver sober and alert. Never allow someone to drive impaired. Remember - your actions could save their life, or someone else’s. If you observe a driver that you suspect is impaired, call 911 from a safe location and provide as much information as possible. We’re hoping for a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and wish all of you the same. Sergeant Alan Witte  ...
