City of St. Martinville Water System
The City of St. Martinville Water System is estimated to be thirty-eight years old, with two water wells that draw groundwater from the Chicot Aquifer, consisting of a 16" main line down to 2" lines, and services a population of 7,467 people living in or near the City of St. Martinville, LA. Our systems lines consist of three different types of materials. Polyvinylchloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), and iron pipe. Iron pipe is used at the entry of our distribution system, and approximately fifty miles of piping is used throughout the system. We have no record that any of our lines contain lead.
The City of St. Martinville uses chlorine gas as a method of disinfection of raw water and do not currently use any form of corrosion control. Along with other routine forms of sampling preformed regularly (including, but not limited to bacteriological, inorganic, organic and disinfection limits), we test our water system for lead. This testing occurs at 20 sites throughout the system on a 3-year schedule. The results of the lead testing (along with other test results) can be found in your Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) put out by the City of St. Martinville every year by June 30th.
