Utility System Update

Greetings and Salutations!

A brief message from Temple’s Utility Director, Damon Boniface, providing an update to our community on many water and wastewater activities as summer time approaches.  Yes, the Texas heat is almost here!

Water conservation plays an important role in the protection of the City’s most precious natural resource.

Let’s be “water smart” this summer, and remember to use water wisely, turning off faucets and reporting water leaks to (254) 298-5611 when they are observed.

With water demands across town expected to increase with rising temperatures, our water system will be operating at peak conditions with plants, pumps, pipes, and people on the ready.  Let’s all do our part to remain vigilant this summertime season.

The City of Temple’s water system is now in full compliance with all drinking water standards. Damon Boniface, Utility Director, reports that water system sampling and results for quarter three, collected by TCEQ on August 1, 2017, are fullycompliant with latest water system improvements, including monitored levels of Total Trihalomethane (TTHM) in the public drinking water supply.  Beginning third quarter, the system regained full compliance with the TCEQ Local Running Annual Average (LRAA) for all eight sites, with the highest reading at 64 micrograms per liter (ug/l) (maximum LRAA of 80 ug/l).  Staff continues to routinely monitor changing source water conditions to ensure treatment processes are properly adjusted to remove organic material that causes trihalomethanes when in contact with chlorine.  Further improvements to the City’s water treatment plant are currently under design with several long-term tasks focused on addressing aging infrastructure and maintaining compliance with treatment standards protecting the public health and safety. 

If you have any questions concerning this notice, you may contact Colton Migura or Damon Boniface at (254) 298-5940.

Yours in service,
Damon B. Boniface
