    effectiveness of residuals handling through execution of WTP Phase II Residuals & Chemical
    Improvements project.

FY 2009 ACCOMPLISHMENTS
•   Achieved compliance with all state and EPA drinking water standards.
•   Certified for the sixth consecutive year as a Partnership for Safe Water Director’s Award plant.
•   Completed design and began construction of facilities as part of the Phase II Residuals and Chemical
    Improvements project to enhance the plant’s ability to handle and process residuals and meet new
    regulatory requirements with chemical feed systems improvements.
•   Completed an Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE) as required by EPA’s new Stage 2
    Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule in order to plan for system compliance with the new rules by
    the compliance deadline in 2012.
•   Completed regulatory requirement of conducting bi-monthly monitoring for source water
    cryptosporidium for a two year period as required by EPA’s new Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water
    Treatment Rule.
•   Continued a study of drought induced poor source water quality and began developing options for a plant
    operational contingency plan for implementation during severe drought conditions and associated poor
    source water quality conditions.
•   Initiated a preliminary engineering study in order to begin planning for the next capital facilities
    expansion at the plant.
•   Implemented a Career Ladder program for employees to encourage cross-training and increase flexibility
    of plant staffing.

KEY PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES
•  Achieve 100% compliance rating with all state and EPA standards for drinking water.
•  Achieve a turbidity removal percentage of 99% or greater.
•  Adequately meet Town of Cary and Town of Apex water system demands and daily needs of system
   customers.
•  Achieve a $300 or less treatment chemical cost per million gallons of water treated.

SIGNIFICANT BUDGET AND SERVICE LEVEL CHANGES BEYOND CURRENT LEVELS
•  Increase in total treatment costs due to economic impacts affecting critical supplies and professional
   service costs.
•  Significant increases in treatment chemical costs per million gallons treated due to rapidly escalating raw
   chemical prices and fuel surcharges leading to higher overall treatment costs.
•  Increased electric power costs leading to higher overall treatment costs.
