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.
