Reporting Requirement(s) Not Met for the City of Harker Heights

We are required to report the City of Harker Heights failure to provide total coliform-positive or total coliform-negative sample results to the state in a timely manner. Total coliform samples determine whether or not your water supply is safe.

Our system failed to notify the state drinking water program, as required, by September 30, 2017. Although public health was not impacted, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.

What should you do? 

There is nothing you need to do at this time.  You do not need to boil your water or take other actions.

What is being done?

During the week of September 25, 2017, seven (7) routine coliform water samples were not submitted to the city’s contract laboratory.   The City of Harker Heights is required to collect 30 routine samples each month.  Once city staff discovered the seven water samples were not submitted to the laboratory, an additional 21 water samples were collected on Tuesday October 3, 2017 and submitted to the laboratory. These 21 samples are outside of the required September reporting period but were collected to ensure your water is safe to drink.  All 21 coliform water samples were negative and free from any bacteriological contaminates.   The City of Harker Heights will return to compliance with the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) once all 30 routine coliform water samples for the month of October are submitted to the laboratory.

Please contact Public Works at (254) 953-5649 with any questions or concerns you may have.
