Water Monitoring and Reporting Violation - Wednesday, January 17, 2018
             Failure to Submit a Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR)
                                          MONITORING, ROUTING (DBP), MAJOR/CHLORINE

    The City Of Quanah Water System (PWS ID 0990002) has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Section 290.122.  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 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 7/01/2017 thru 09/30/2017.

     We are taking the following action to address this issue:

     The City of Quanah is implementing a set list of procedures and reminders of sampling for chlorine residuals daily and reporting Quarterly.

     Please share this information with all people who use City 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 Mason Isnhower at 940.839.8629.
 
DRINKING WATER - Friday, December 22, 2017
   The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)  has notified THE CITY OF QUANAH, TX 0990002, that the drinking water being supplied to customers had exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL), for total trihalomethanes.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA)  has established the MCL for total trihalomethanes to be 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L) based on locational running annual average (LRAA),  and has determined that it is a health concern at levels above the MCL.  Analysis of drinking water in your community for total trihalomethanes indicates a compliance value in quarter four 2017, of 0.081 mg/L for DBP2-02.

   Trihalomethanes are a group of volatile organic compounds that are formed when chlorine, added to water during the treatment process for disinfection, reacts with naturally occurring organic matter in the water. 

   Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidney, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

   You do not need to use an alternative water supply.  However, if you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor to get more information about how this may affect you.

   We are coordinating with the Greenbelt MWA (our water supplier), to monitor amounts of ammonia they add to the surface water we purchase from them and will flush our system's lines more frequently to mitigate the buildup of trihalomethanes in water delivered to our customers. 

   IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS MATTER, YOU MAY CONTACT TONY TALLANT AT (940-663-5336).

 STAGE 3 WATER RESTRICTIONS Minimize
Water Restrictions - Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Current levels in Greenbelt Lake have warranted the Greenbelt Municipal and Industrial Water Authority to place its customers under Mandatory Water Rationing. Therefore, the City of Quanah is implementing a water use curtailment order in accordance with Stage 3 of its Drought Contingency Plan.

The following Water Use Restrictions are in effect immediately and will remain in effect until further notice:

2. Outside watering utilizing sprinklers or irrigation systems will only be allowed on designated days.

3. Customers with EVEN numbered address may water lawns and shrubs on Wednesday and Saturdays ONLY.

4. Customers with ODD numbered address may water lawns and shrubs on Thursdays and Sundays ONLY.

5. All outdoor watering by hose-end sprinklers, soaker hoses, or drip irrigation may occur only between the hours of 7:00pm to 10:00am on the designated outdoor water use day.

6. If you have a water well, locate a sign in your front yard for notification.

7. Water from leaks should be reported to the City immediately if one is found.

8. No commercial water will be purchased at the Fire Station.

9. No charity car washes are permitted.

ALL NON-ESSENTIAL WATER USE IS PROHIBITED.
Non-essential water use: water uses that are not essential or required for the protection of public health, safety, and welfare, including:
1. Use of water to wash down any sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots, tennis courts, or other hard-surfaced areas
2. Use of water to wash down any buildings or structures for purposes other than immediate fire protection
3. Flushing gutters or permitting water to run or accumulate in any gutter or street
4. Failure to repair a controllable leak within 24 hours after having been given notice directing the repair of such leak; and
5. Use of water from hydrants for construction purposes or any other purposes other than fire fighting and flushing of lines to maintain a potable water supply.

We ask your help in this dry condition and hopefully the Greenbelt Lake will receive some rain. If not, stricter restrictions may be necessary.
