Triggered Source Monitoring and Reporting Violation Ground Water Rule

HUDSON WSC PWS 0030023 failed to collect the required number of triggered source bacteriological samples for fecal indicator monitoring of the ground water system during SEPT 2010.

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 ground water well.  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.

We are taking the following actions to address this issue:  In order to return to compliance our system must collect a raw sample form each active well and we will be collecting them on June 29, 2020.

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.

If you have any questions regarding this violation, you may contact: James Young at 936-875-2146
