Triggered Source Monitoring and Reporting Violation: Groundwater Rule

City of Pearsall, PWS ID No. 0820002 failed to collect the required number of triggered source bacteriological samples for fecal indicator monitoring of the groundwater system during June 2018 and January 2019. This monitoring is required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s “Drinking Water Standards” and the federal “Safe Drinking Water Act,” Public Law 95-523.

Triggered source samples are used to monitor water quality and indicate if the water is free of fecal indicator bacteria. Following a positive routine total coliform result in our distribution system, our water system is required to submit one triggered source sample for every active groundwater well source. Failure to collect all required triggered source samples is a violation of the monitoring requirements and we are required to notify you of this violation.

What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time.

What is being done?

Corrective measures were implemented to ensure proper monitoring techniques are being utilized. Daily residual samples are cautiously being taken before distribution into the water system at all required locations. Additionally, water storage supplies are being sampled daily as an extra level of safety precaution.

For more information, please contact City of Pearsall at 830-334-3676 or 215 S. Ash St.

*Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, 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. *
