Notice of Drinking Water Arsenic Violation

Fourth Quarter Reporting

Mandatory Public Notification Language


The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has notified the CITY OF STANTON water system that the drinking water being supplied to customers had exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for ARSENIC.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has established the MCL for ARSENIC at 0.010 mg/L, and has determined that it is a health concern at levels above the MCL.  Analysis of drinking water in your community for ARSENIC indicates a level of 0.011 mg/L.  This violation occurred IN QUARTER FOUR 2018 FOR EP002.

This is not an emergency.  However, some people who drink water containing arsenic in excess of the MCL over many years could experience skin damage or problems with their circulatory system, 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. 

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. 


Steps to Correct the Problem: The City of Stanton is consulting with a professional engineering firm to assist with a treatment process to reduce arsenic levels. Blending ground water and surface water will continue to help reduce levels below maximum contamination level.



Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, 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.

 TTHM Notice Minimize
TTHM
Mandatory Public Notification Language


The CITY OF STANTON  has been notified by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) that the water this system supplies has exceeded the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes (TTHM's), as set in the Commission's Drinking Water Standards.

The MCL for TTHM's is 0.080 milligrams per liter (mg/L).  Compliance with this level is based on a running annual average of quarterly sample results.  CITY OF STANTON's running annual average for the FIRST quarter of 2017 was 0.096 mg/L.


Trihalomethanes are a group of volatile organic compounds that are formed when chlorine, added  to the 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 working to correct the problem. The City of Stanton is in the process of combining chlorine and ammonia to minimize formation of Trihalomethanes . Ground water is also in use to help blend with surface water.


Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, 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. 


If you have any questions concerning this notice, you may contact JESSIE MONTEZ at 432-756-3302.
