The Water We Drink
Turkey Creek Water System
Public Water Supply ID: LA1041012
We are pleased to present to you the Annual Water Quality Report for the year 2009. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of your water and services we deliver to you every day (Este informe contiene informacion muy importante sobre su agua potable. Traduzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien). Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water.
Our water source(s) are listed below:
Source Name Source Water Type Source Water Body Name
Well #3 Southwest Well Ground Water
Well #4 Southeast Well Ground Water
Well #1 Northeast Well Ground Water
Well #2 Northwest Well Ground Water
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 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. 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.
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. Turkey Creek Water 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.
In order to ensue that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. We are pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets Federal and State requirements. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you have any questions about this report, want to attend any scheduled meetings, or simply want to learn more about your drinking water, please contact Mike McGuffee at 318-744-1999.
The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals-Office of Public Health routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The tables that follow show the results of our monitoring during the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2009. 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.
In the tables below, you will find many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these terms, we’ve provided the following definitions:
Non-Detects (ND)-laboratory analysis indicates that the constituent is not present.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/L)-one part per million corresponds to one minute tin two years or a single penny in $10,000.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/L)-one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000.
Parts per trillion (ppt) or Nanograms per liter (ng/L)-one part per trillion corresponds to one minute in 2,000,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000,000.
Parts per quadrillion (ppq) or Picograms per liter (pg/L)-one part per quadrillion corresponds to one minute in 2,000,000,000 years or one penny in $10,000,000,000,000.
Picocuries per liter (pCi/L)-picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water.
Millirems per year (mrem/yr)-measure of radiation absorbed by the body.
Million fibers per liter (MFL)-million fibers per liter is a measure of the presence of asbestos fibers that are longer than 10 micrometers.
Nephelometric Turbidity Unit ( NTU)-nephelometric turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person.
Variances & Exemptions (V&E)-State or EPA permission not to meet CML or a treatment technique under certain conditions.
Action level (AL)-the concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Treatment Technique (TT)-a treatment technique is a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.
Maximum contaminant level (MCL)- the “Maximum Allowed” MCL is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCL’s are set as close to the MCLG’s as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG)-the “Goal” is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to human health. MCLG’s allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level (MRDL)-The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal (MRDLG)-The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
During the period covered by this report we had below noted violations of drinking water regulations.

No Detected Results were Found in the Calendar Year of 2009.
In the tables below, we have shown the regulated contaminants that have detectable levels. These samples, except for Lead and Copper results and surface water systems, were collected at the raw water source and represent water before any treatment, blending or distribution. As such, the consumer tap levels could be less. Chemical Sampling of our drinking water may not be required on an annual basis; therefore, information provided in this table refers back to the latest year of chemical sampling results.

****Environmental Protection Agency Required Health Effects Language****
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 are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
There are no additional required health effects notices.
There are no additional required health effects violation notices.

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on May 14, 2010, Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”) an electric public utility providing retail electric service to customers in forty-three (43) Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC”), pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(3) of the Louisiana Constitution and Title 45, Section 1163.1 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, its Formula Rate Plan (“FRP”) Rider FRP schedule for the test year ended December 31, 2009, pursuant to LPSC Order Nos. U-20925 (FRP 2006) and U-20925 (FRP 2007) decided at the October 14, 2009 Business and Executive Session of the Louisiana Public Service Commission. ELL’s FRP filing, if approved by the Commission as filed, will result in a net FRP revenue increase of approximately $0.5 million, which increase will be implemented effective the first billing cycle of September 2010, pursuant to Section 2.B.2 of the FRP.
ELL’s FRP has a target return on equity (“ROE”) of 10.25% with a plus or minus 80 basis point deadband in which there is no change in rates based upon earned ROE (“EROE”) for the test year. ELL’s FRP filing for the 2009 test year reflects an EROE of 10.82%; therefore, there is no rate change due to ELL’s cost of service sharing mechanism. ELL has, however, reflected the following adjustments to Rider FRP revenues outside of the FRP sharing mechanism: (1) an increase of $7.906 million to reflect an extraordinary cost change associated with a required increase in decommissioning accruals related to of ELL’s Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station; and (2) a decrease of approximately $7.407 million to reflect a change in the Additional Capacity Revenue Requirement pursuant to LPSC Special Order 42-2009.
It is estimated that the proposed net increase of $0.5 million will have the following effects upon ELL customers’ bills based upon May 2010 Fuel Adjustment and Environmental Adjustment Charges. A bill for Residential Service for 1,000 kWh would increase $0.01 from $93.69 to $93.70. A bill for Small General Service for 12,500 kWh would increase $0.23 from $1,276.00 to $1,276.23. A bill for Large General Service for 1,000 kW and 500,000 kWh would increase $5.13 from $36,600.78 to $36,605.91.
Included in ELL’s main FRP filing described above is an ancillary filing that reflects the additional changes in Total FRP Revenue that would result from certain changes to ELL’s depreciation rates, if approved by the Commission. As a result of litigation at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“”FERC”) in which the LPSC challenged the propriety of depreciation rates of ELL and other Entergy Operating Companies, ELL and the other Entergy Operating Companies have filed new depreciation studies with the FERC and ELL has requested that the LPSC open a subdocket in this FRP proceeding to review the depreciation studies filed at the FERC and to determine whether the existing depreciation rates remain just and reasonable and, if not, to approve the depreciation rates that it determines to be just and reasonable. The ancillary filing reflects the additional increase in Total Rider FRP Revenue that would be required under two alternative scenarios: (1) if ELL’s depreciation rates were changed in accordance with the new depreciation studies and the estimated useful life of ELL’s nuclear facilities is deemed to be 40 years; and (2) if ELL’s depreciation rates were changed in accordance with the new depreciation studies and the estimated useful life of ELL’s nuclear facilities is deemed to be 60 years. The first scenario would yield an additional increase in Rider FRP revenue of approximately $96.435 million and the second scenario would yield an additional increase of approximately $40.459 million over and above the net $0.5 million increase included in the main filing. It is the Company’s expectation that any change in depreciation rates related to its ancillary filing that is ultimately approved by the Commission would be implemented only on a prospective basis and in conjunction with the next rate implementation after any such approval occurs.
In addition to the aforementioned issues, the Company notes that pursuant to ordering paragraph 5 of LPSC Order No. U-20925 (FRP 2007), the Staff, the Company, and Intervenors are currently working to design a transmission rider for ELL, that, if adopted by the Commission, would provide for the recovery of transmission investment on a more contemporaneous basis than would be achieved absent such a rider. These efforts may ultimately result in a mechanism that may modify the current 2009 Test Year filing and/or future FRP filings.
For questions and comments please call the LPSC toll free at (800) 256-2397. Additionally, the Company’s filing and its attachments may be viewed in the Records Division of the LPSC at the following address:
