Monitoring or Reporting Requirements Not Met by City of Kiowa

The City of Kiowa public water supply system violated a drinking water standard. Even though

this was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what

we are doing to correct this situation.

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 out drinking water meets heath

standards. During November 2015, we did not complete some required monitoring or testing for

coliform bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our water during that time.

What happened: We are routinely required to test for coliform bacteria no fewer than two

times a month. Additional samples are required following a coliform-positive or rejected

sample. A monitoring violation occurred because of failure to collect one of the routine

microbiological samples required during November 2015.

What you should do and who is at risk: This is not an emergency. There is nothing you need

to do at this time. There is no direct health rick to consumers.

What we are doing: Since it is our desire to provide the safest water possible to our customers,

we hace taken action of paying closer attention to our monthly sampling program and daily

record keeping, and are looking into alternative resources for testing or shipping if necessary in

order to prevent future violations. We will call our laboratory early in the month if we haven’t

received bottles needed for sampling. We have resolved the problem in the month of

December 2015.
