IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JERSEY VILLAGE DRINKING WATER

The City of Jersey Village purchases and redistributes its surface water from the City of Houston. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) sets water quality standards for public drinking water. Samples taken in the Houston Main Public Water System (TX1010013) during October, November, and December 2017 were in compliance and met drinking water standards for bacteria; however, chlorine disinfectant residual levels during these months were below the TCEQ-required minimum standards in more than 5 percent of the samples taken, triggering this required notice.

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

JERSEY VILLAGE DRINKING WATER REMAINS SAFE. There is nothing you need to do.

 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified within 24 hours.

 

WHAT IS BEING DONE?

The City of Jersey Village is:

  1. monitoring chlorine levels at drinking water purification plants and throughout the water system to ensure regulatory compliance.
  2. prioritizing field response by defining areas where disinfectant is low.
  3. conducting maintenance to optimize water flow.
