Texas Foreclosures and Public Notices
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has informed the City of Graham that the tests for Lead and Copper Monitoring were not reported on the assigned schedule. This is a reporting violation under the TCEQ rules. All customers were notified by mail in the comments section of the utility bill. This is for the period of January 1 - December 31, 2014.
Additionally, a notice can be found on the City of Graham website at <1>www.cityofgrahamtexas.com.
It is important to note that samples were collected and submitted to the laboratory according to the assigned schedule. A sample was damaged in transport and had to be re-submitted. This caused a technical violation of the rules.
No test failed and all quality was in compliance with the applicable regulations. Therefore in conformance with the TCEQ rules the following notice with manatory wording prepared by the TCEQ is required to be used by the City is provided:
The City of Graham, Texas has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Chapter 30, section 290, Subchapter F. Public water systems are required to monitor for Lead and Copper and report the results to the TCEQ. During the period January 1 - December 31, 2014, we did not complete all monitoring and /or reporting for lead and copper, and therefor TCEQ cannot be sure of the safety of your drinking water during that time.
We are working to correct the problem:
<1>Samples were collected and resubmitted and passed all the requirements. Also additional samples are being taken during the subsequent periods as prescribed by TCEQ.
Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may or may not have received this notice directly (i.e. people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses).
