Notice of Drinking Water Monitoring and Reporting Violations
The Texas Commission on Environment Quality (TCEQ) has notified the CITY OF WILMER that we have violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set forth in Chapter 30, Section 290, Subchapter F. We are required to properly disinfect water before distribution, maintain acceptable disinfection residuals within the distribution system, monitor the disinfectant residual at various locations throughout the distribution system, and report the results of that monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is protected from microbial contamination. During the forth quarter of 2008 beginning October 1, 2008 and ending December 31, 2008, we did not complete all monitoring and/or reporting for disinfectant residual monitoring & reporting, and therefore the TCEQ cannot be sure of the safety of your drinking water during that time.
We are working to correct the problem. We are compiling the reports at this time and will have all reports submitted within 7 days.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by mail.
