LEAD & COPPER RULE MONITORING AND REPORTING VIOLATION
MANDATORY LANGUAGE – TIER III
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
City of Gladewater 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 June 30, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2017 and June 30, 2018 to Sept. 30, 2018 we did not monitor or test 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.
What is being done?
We are working to correct the problem. For more information, please contact Steven Matlock at 903-844-6331.
Please share this information with all other 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.
