3RD QUARTER VIOLATIONS

 

*THIS IS ONLY IMPACTS PEOPLE ON FM 1104*

 

Maximum Contaminant Level Violation MCL, LRAA/TTHM

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has notified the Crystal Clear SUD TX0940015 that the drinking water being supplied to customers had exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for the total trihalomethanes.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has established the MCL for total trihalomethanes to be 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L) based on the locational running annual average (LRAA), and has determined that it is a health concern at levels above the MCL.  Analysis of drinking water in your community for the total trihalomethanes indicates a compliance value in quarter two 2019 of 0.090 mg/L for DBP2-03.

Trihalomethanes are a group of volatile organic compounds that are formed when chlorine added to the water during the treatment process for disinfection, reacts with naturally-occurring organic matter in the water.

Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidney or central nervous systems, and may have an increased of getting cancer.

You do not need to use an alternative water supply.  However, if you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor to get more information about how this may affect you.

Crystal Clear is taking the following actions to address this issue: Adjusting chlorine residuals, water age and flushing affected areas.

Please share this information with all the 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 please contact Crystal Clear SUD at 830-372-1031.
