Lead and Copper Water Notice


PWS 2050003 has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Chapter 30, Section 290, Subchapter F.  Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have the right to know what happened and what we are doing (or did) to correct these situations.


We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis.  Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards.  During 2022 year we did not monitor or test – or – did not complete all monitoring or testing for Lead and Copper and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time.


The table below lists the contaminant(s) we did not properly test for during the last year, how often we are supposed to sample for Lead and Copper, how many samples we are supposed to take, how many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date on which the follow-up samples were [or will be] taken.
