Failure to Submit a Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR)



The CITY OF SHALLOWATER water system PWS ID 1520003 has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30TAC), Section 290, Subchapter F.  Public water systems are required to properly disinfect water before distribution, maintain acceptable disinfection residuals within the distribution system, monitor the disinfectant residual at various locations throughout the distribution system, and report the results of that monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis. 

Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is safe from microbial contamination. 

This/These violation(s) occurred in the monitoring period(s) 3rd Quarter 2020.

 We are taking the following actions to address this issue:

1.       The Utilities Department has been restructured. 

2.       Monitoring occurs daily and a schedule of required monitoring and reporting has been implemented.

3.       The water system expects to return to compliance after the issuance of this Public Notice.  Once it was known the DLQOR is a quarterly requirement the 4th Quarter 2020 results were filed before the deadline.  All reported residuals were within compliance.


Please share this information with all 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). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. 



If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Paul Farris at City Hall at

(806) 696-4300.
