PWS ID 101003 Public Notification Letter

Post Date:07/13/2017 3:06 PM

The City of Baytown water system PWS ID 1010003 has violated the monitoring/reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Section 290, Subchapter F. Public water systems 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 result of the monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis.

Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is safe from microbial contamination. 

This violation occurred in the monitoring period of the First Quarter of 2017 and was issued based on Late submission of the Quarterly disinfection report.

We are taking the following actions to address this issue:
-Public Notification to City of Baytown water recipients. All areas of the water system were properly disinfected and monitored, and all test results for the quarter were in compliance with the TCEQ minimum disinfection residual. We believe the error resulting in late submission is not indicative of the water system and has been addressed and corrected moving forward. 
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 apartment, nursing homes, schools and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
If you have questions regarding this matter you may contact Sterling Beaver at 281-420-5310.
