The Jamestown Community Water System currently uses three wells as its main sources of water to supply its consumers. The wells are located on the property surrounding the reservoir north of the Borough on U.S. Route 322. Two of the wells are operated constantly, while the third is used as a supplement when demand is high. After the water is drawn from these sources it is disinfected through addition of a product commonly used for drinking water disinfection. The disinfected water is then passed through a bag filter system that removes oxidized particles and any other sediment that may be present in the water. After the bag filters, the water enters the reservoir. An electronically controlled pump station pumps water from the reservoir to the storage tank as needed. These systems are adjusted daily to assure production of good quality 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 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.
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 microbiological contaminants are available from the
