A Message to
In accordance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) rules, the City of Euless is providing this notice to our residents. There are state mandated reporting requirements that require the City of Euless to send water quality test results to TCEQ quarterly. The City of Euless did not deliver a required report by the due date and therefore, must provide the following notice to all water customers. City supplied water is tested at least 60 times per month for quality and safety. All required testing was performed and the water met state or federal guidelines at all times during this period.
Mandatory Language for Monitoring/ Reporting Violation Failure to Submit a Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR) MONITORING, ROUTINE (DBP), MAJOR/CHLORINE
The CITY OF EULESS water system PWS ID 2200031 has violated the monitoring and 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 disinfection 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 safe from microbial contamination.
This violation occurred in the monitoring period: First quarter of 2017.
We are taking the following actions to address this issue:
The City of Euless performs daily monitoring of the chlorine residual in our water distribution system as required. All daily residuals for the first quarter of 2017 were performed and logged but we failed to submit the required Disinfectant Level Quarterly Monitoring Report (DLQOR) for the first quarter of 2017 to TCEQ on time, thus resulting in this violation. We will closely monitor this issue to prevent any future reoccurrence by sending the DLQOR reports in a timely manner as required by TCEQ.
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). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may contact Hal Cranor, Director of Public Works at (817) 685-1646.
