Failure to Complete Significant Deficiency Corrective Actions: Groundwater Rule

Failure to Complete Significant Deficiency Corrective Actions: Groundwater Rule

The City of Woodville / PWS ID 2290001 recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we did (are doing) to correct this situation.

A routine inspection conducted on 11/30/2021 by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) found the city failed to maintain plant equipment tight against leakage and failed to properly equip the Gib Lewis Plant ground storage tank and Hwy 190 elevated tank roof vents to prevent entry of animals, birds, insects and heavy air contaminants into the storage tanks by use of corrosion-resistant material that is 16-mesh or finer in our water system.

As required by the Groundwater Rule, we were required to take action to correct this deficiency. However, we failed to take action by the deadline established by TCEQ.

What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time.

What is being done?

While the necessary repairs and corrective actions were taken prior to the required deadline of May 27, 2022, the City of Woodville failed to submit the proper documentation verifying the corrective measures by that date.  The required documentation has been submitted to the TCEQ and the violation has been resolved.

For more information, please contact Charles Odom at (409) 283-2234 or 400 W. Bluff St., Woodville, TX 75979.
