COMMUNITY INFORMATION / ALERT

The City of Merkel/PWS ID 2210002 failed to collect the required number of bacteriological samples for coliform monitoring of the water distribution system during February 2015. 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.

Bacteriological samples are used to monitor water quality and indicate if the water is free of coliform bacteria. Our water system is required to submit 3 bacteriological samples each month. Failure to collect all required samples is a violation of the monitoring requirements and we are required to notify you of this violation.

If you have any questions regarding this violation, you may contact Steve Campbell at 325/928-4911.
