Description

The Water Production Division is responsible for producing and supplying quality water that complies with all federal and state water quality standards, while meeting system demands at all times. TCEQ requires flushing dead end water mains monthly to preserve the quality of the water delivered to the customer. Currently there are approximately 26 dead ends that require flushing.


Operational duties are performed seven days a week at each treatment facility and include; daily operations check and reporting, daily in house samples on TCEQ qualified equipment, and checking and adjusting chemical feed rates. Scheduled maintenance includes; maintenance and repair of all chemical pumping equipment and appurtenances, maintenance and repair of disinfection equipment, instrumentation calibration, chemical order, and delivery. The Division must also complete and submit required Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) self-monitoring reports monthly. Water samples are sent to a TCEQ certified lab for testing on a weekly basis. Approximately 300,000 gallons of water is treated daily. All repairs of the disinfection system, electrical and chemical feed systems are completed and managed by staff.
