Forth Worth Cited for Delivering Infected Water

LNF,

It is reported that Fort Worth water department is being cited for failing to adequately treat some of its drinking water for about 21-hour period last week. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has cited the city for failing to properly disinfect the drinking water for a period of more than four hours at the Eagle Mountain Water Treatment Plant on February 16 and 17, 2015. The Fort Worth Water Department self-reported the violation to TCEQ.

Out of 124 million gallons, about 30 million gallons (24 percent) treated by all water plants in the system during the period of 24-hours that did not meet the requirements. As per the regulations the violation requires the city to notify all the customers by mail. Moreover, the city says it is working to accomplish that in the next two weeks. The city has posted the information on its website and will place an ad in the Star-Telegram.
