Mandatory Language for Monitoring and Reporting Violation

Failure to Submit a Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR)



The WEST DELTA WSC water system PWS ID 0600017 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, monitor the disinfectant 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 of 10/1/2015———————-12/31/2015.


We are taking the following actions to address this issue:


We have and will always monitor the system for disinfectant residuals as required by rule.  We did fail to submit the required Disinfectant Level Quarterly Monitoring Report (DLQOR) for the period listed above to TCEQ on time thus resulting in violation.  We will strive very hard to make sure we get the required DLQOR reports filed with TCEQ on time in the future.


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 Tim Martin at 903-886-7117.
