Water Quality Reports:

Consumer Confidence Report Violation
The Consumer Confidence Report was mailed to all residences and businesses in the City this past spring. The report contained the 2015 testing results for the City’s drinking water. It was recently discovered that one of the results in this annual report was incorrect. The result for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) was reported at 15 parts per billion (ppb) when it should have been reported as 18.3 ppb. The Safe Drinking Water Maximum Contaminant Level for TTHMs is 80 ppb; there is no sampling or exceedance violation. TTHMs are created when organics come into contact with chlorine, the disinfectant used to ensure the drinking water is free of bacteria. As a customer, there is nothing for you do to at this time. If you have any questions, please contact Mick Jakymiw, Water Production Manager, at (505) 896-8813.

On 11/18/2016, we became aware that our system recently failed to collect monitoring samples required by the Stage 2 Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule in 2015. 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. Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids samples were due in April and were collected in May, because these samples were not collected , we cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during the compliance period. There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. You may continue to drink the water. If you have any questions, please contact Mick Jakymiw, Water Production Manager, at (505) 896-8813.
