2020 ANNUAL WATER QUALITY REPORT
FOR THE VILLAGE OF HAMEL
This report is designed to inform you about the quality of water we delivered to you over the past year. Copies will be available at the Hamel Village Hall, 111 S. Old U.S. Rt. 66, Hamel, IL. If you wish to have a copy mailed to you or if you have any questions about this report, please contact the water supply operator, Don Grimm (618) 633-2484, or attend our regularly scheduled meetings, 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at the Village Hall, 111 S. Old U.S. Rt. 66, Hamel, IL.
Hamel purchases water from Bond/Madison Water Company who in turn is supplied by the Illinois American Water Company. This water is piped from the Granite City and East St. Louis Water Treatment Plant which receives water from the Mississippi Rivers. A source water assessment for the Granite City and East St. Louis systems have been completed by the Illinois EPA. If you would like a summary of the information contained in this report, contact Rachel Bretz, Illinois American Water Quality Supervisor at (618) 465-6736 ext. 4. IEPA considers all surface water sources of community water supply to be susceptible to potential pollution problems, hence, the reason for mandatory treatment for all surface water supplies in Illinois. Mandatory treatment includes coagulation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection.

The Granite City distribution system also has an interconnection with the East St. Louis distribution system. Water is routinely supplied to the Granite City system through that connection.

The Village of Hamel routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The first table in this report shows the results of Illinois American’s monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2020 at their Granite City supply. Because customers may at times receive water from the East St. Louis supply, the second table contains the monitoring information from that distribution system. The third table includes the system monitoring data for the Village of Hamel.
