SURFACE WATER TREATMENT TECHNIQUE: [NON-ACUTE]

 

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) sets minimum water quality standards for public drinking water. These standards include enforceable treatment technique requirements for drinking water.  Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms.  These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.

 

  • The PWS COMBINED CONSUMERS SUD, PWS ID TX 1160052, failed to meet the minimum treatment technique requirements for the month of February 2021. Specifically, our water system had--- Low Disinfection Contact Time (CT) for more than four consecutive hours.

 

During the week of February 15-19, 2021, the water flow coming through the system was going out so fast that it didn’t have the required time to sit with the disinfection.

 

Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (i.e., people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).
