Total Trihalomethane Exceeded

The 3rd Quarter 2016 total trihalomethane sample from 824 Shoreline caused the quarterly average set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to be exceeded. The Maximum Contaminant Level is set at 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L). The running annual average for this site is 0.082 mg/L. Although this is an extremely small overage, the TCEQ requires that we send notification to all of our customers.

All other samples that were taken within the system were below the 0.080 mg/L MCL.

We are currently cleaning our system by changing to free chlorine and system-wide flushing. This will ensure that our chlorine residuals stay where we want them and will ensure that trihalomethanes return to normal levels.

Trihalomethanes are only harmful if exposed over many years. Our average normally stays well below the MCL. This issue is being addressed and will have no affect on our customer's health.

Clean Water Around the Globe

Clean Water Around the Globe

We North Americans have unparalleled access to clean water. Clean water is such a given that we have the luxury of judging water based solely on its taste. We can simply assume that our tap water, across this entire continent, is clean and safe to drink. It’s astounding, really. The idea of not being able to find any clean water to drink is almost incomprehensible to us. This is not the case, however, in many other parts of the world.  In fact, 795 million people —one in nine people across the globe— live without access to clean, drinkable water.

As we continue our look at Clean Water, having looked at the history of and process of water treatment and purification in Part 1 and Part 2, this month we will begin to look at some exciting innovations in providing clean water to people who need it.
