"All tests taken before and immediately after TCEQ's test have showed very low (normal) levels of THMs," City Engineer, Steve Bartlett said. "The city believes these tests results were in error. We are obligated to repeatedly provide the public with the same notices initially received."
In compliance with State and Federal regulations, the City of Nacogdoches included a State provided public notice describing the test results in the December 2016 water bills. Regulations state that such public notifications must be issued in the water bills every three months until the running average of all tests falls below the maximum contaminant level.
"It is important to note although these notices are repeatedly going to all water consumers, our water supply is safe to drink and citizens do not need to filter, boil or treat their water," Jim Jeffers, City Manager, said. "We will also continue to issue notices and will remain transparent about the process until our dispute is resolved."
