Lead and Copper Rule Monitoring and Reporting Violation
Mandatory Language – Tier III
Important Information About Your Drinking Water
Mountain WSC has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Chapter 30, Section 290, Subchapter F. Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have the right to know what happened and what we are doing (or did) to correct these situations.
We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During January thru July 2016 we did not monitor or test or did not complete all monitoring or testing for lead and copper water quality parameters and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time.
The table below lists the contaminant(s) we did not properly test for during the last year, how often we are supposed to sample for these contaminants, how many samples we are supposed to take, how many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date on which the follow-up samples were or will be taken.

What is being done?
We are working to correct the problem. For more information, please contact Mountain Water Supply at (254) 865-2601, P.O. Box 1045 Gatesville, Texas 76528.
First set of tests were done in October 2016 with the second set done in November 2016.
Please share this information with all other 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).
