IMPORTANT INFROMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER FOR MOUNTAIN MESA WATER 

Disinfection Byproduct Monitoring and Reporting (DBPR) Requirements Not Met for Mountain Mesa Water Company Water System During 2019

 

Our water system failed to monitor as required for a drinking water monitoring standard

during 2019 and, therefore, was in violation of State regulations. Even though this failure was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened and what we did to correct this situation.

 

What happened?

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. We did not monitor or test for disinfection byproducts as required in 2019, and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.

 

What should I do?

     There is nothing you need to do at this time.

     The table below lists the contaminant we did not properly test for during the last year, how many samples we are required to take and how often, how many samples we many samples we took, when samples should have been taken, and the date on which follow-up samples were (or will be) taken.

We are in unprecedented times and people are wondering if their drinking water is safe?

The answer is yes.  All the water provided to ECW & MMWC customers are ground water wells. Groundwater sources maintain protective physical measures, including soil barriers, to ensure that water sources are protected from pathogens, including viruses. The water is also chlorinated before delivery to the system. 

COVID-19 is transmitted person to person, not through water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 

In the meantime, water service will not be interrupted for late payments during this crisis, Late charges will also be waived for those who have encountered a hardship through this pandemic. It is still your responsibility to stay current. Thank you.
