Chemical Monitoring, Routine Major

Mandatory Language for Monitoring and Reporting Violation Chemical Sampling

CHEMICAL MONITORING, ROUTINE MAJOR

The CLOVERCREEK MUD water system PWS ID TX1700589 has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Chapter 30, Section 290, Subchapter F. Public water systems are required to collect and submit chemical samples of water provided to their customers, and report the results of those samples to the TCEQ on a regular basis.

We failed to monitor and report the following constituents Nitrate, Metals, Synthetic Organic Contaminants, and Volatile Organics.

These violations occurred during the following monitoring periods:

Nitrate- annual monitoring period January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.

Metals- triennial monitoring period January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2016.

Synthetic Organics- Six year monitoring period January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2016.

Volatile Organics- annual monitoring period January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.

Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is safe from chemical contamination. We did not complete all monitoring and reporting for chemical constituents, and therefor TCEQ cannot be sure of the safety of your drinking water during that time.

We are taking the following actions to address this issue:

Samples for nitrate were collected on 5/9/2017.

Clovercreek is scheduled with a TCEQ Contractor to get samples for Synthetic Organics in 2017.

Clovercreek is scheduled with a TCEQ Contractor to get samples for Metals in 2017.

Samples for Volatile Organics were collected 5/9/17.

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 questions regarding this matter, you may contact Katie Hargrove at (281) 350-0895.
