TCEQ Reporting Violation

Post Date:03/01/2019

The City of Keller takes great pride in delivering safe drinking water to all of our residents and businesses. As part of that safe delivery, the city must submit quarterly reports to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality documenting the multiple daily tests that are conducted to ensure water quality. Although the quality of Keller’s water was never in jeopardy, the city missed a reporting deadline for the third quarter of 2018. As a result, we are required to share the following notice with our customers:

Failure to Submit a Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR) MONITORING, ROUTINE (DBP), MAJOR/CHLORINE

The CITY OF KELLER Public Water System, PWS ID 2200096, has violated the monitoring/reporting requirements set forth by the 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 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 3rd quarter 2018, 7/1/2018 - 9/30/2018.

This is a reporting violation. At no time was the quality of the City's water in jeopardy. The City of Keller failed to submit the 2018 3rd Quarter Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR) to the TCEQ as required, by October 10, 2018. While all testing and monitoring had been completed for the 3rd quarter, the submission deadline was missed. The results of all monitoring conducted during this period meets the regulatory limits set forth by TCEQ for water quality. The City of Keller has improved internal notifications and monitoring redundancies to avoid a repeat of this issue.

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).

If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may contact Randy Worthen, Water Operations Supervisor, at 817-743-4200.
