Re:     Water quality

 

An individual or individuals have published claims that the water produced by the Nueces County Water Control and Improvement District No. 3 (the “District”) is unsafe and as such does not meet the requirements of agencies that regulate the District. The District is a governmental agency and political subdivision of the State of Texas with a certificate to provide water service to those customers within the boundaries established in the certificate. The District is regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”). The TCEQ, as a function of its regulatory authority, requires that the District provide samples of water on a regular schedule to be tested for compliance with its requirements thereby allowing the TCEQ to deem the water produced by the District as safe for human consumption. The District also submits samples of water on a periodic basis for additional testing again to determine if the water produced by the District meets TCEQ and EPA requirements. These reports again show that the District is in compliance with these agencies requirements. A copy of these reports are available for inspection at the District offices during normal business hours.

 

A review of the reports provided by the TCEQ or the testing facility that tests the water samples provided by the District to the TCEQ, shows that the water produced by the District meets or exceeds the requirements of the TCEQ. As such the water produced by the District meets the requirements of the TCEQ and is safe for human consumption. The TCEQ has not issued any report that shows any deficiencies in the quality of water produced by the District and has not issued any water boil notices requiring action by our customers before drinking the water produced by the District.

 

The purpose of this correspondence is to advise the customers of the District that in spite of the claims by those with no actual knowledge of the District’s compliance with the requirements of the agencies that regulate the District, the water produced by the District is safe for human consumption and meets or exceeds all of the requirements of the regulatory agency that monitors the District. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the District offices.
