Required Raw Water Sampling Requirements Not Being Met By Tularosa Water System
Our water system recently violated a drinking water regulation. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We are required to collect raw water samples every two weeks beginning in October 2016. This requirement has not been met for the week(s) of: October, November 2017.
What does it mean?
This is not an emergency! If it had been you would have been notified immediately.
Monitoring and reporting raw surface water is important in ensuring safe water to all our customers.
Tests taken during this time period did/did not indicate the presence of bacteria in the drinking water system.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply. However, if you have specific health concerns, please contact your health care professional.
What is being done?
LT2 samples were done for the October and November.There was a miscommunication of where the Lab results were sent to. It has now been corrected and EPA has received the results.
Problem resolved within the 30 days.
