Triggered Source Monitoring and Reporting Violation: Groundwater Rule


McCoy WSC PWS 0070023 failed to collect the required number of triggered source bacteriological samples for fecal indicator monitoring of the groundwater system during

June 2012 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 (raw water 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?

We are taking the following actions to address the issue:  In order to return to compliance our system had to collect raw samples from all our active wells and send to results to TCEQ and we did and returned to compliance as of 12/12/2012.


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). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
