Triggered Source Monitoring and Reporting Violation:

Ground Water Rule


Orange Co. WCID#2 failed to collect the required number of triggered source bacteriological samples for fecal indicator monitoring of the ground water system during August of 2020. This monitoring is required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s “Drinking Water Standards” and the federal “Safe Drinking Water Act,” Public Law 95-523.


Triggered source samples are used to monitor water quality and indicate if the water is free of fecal indicator bacteria. Following a positive routine total coliform result in our distribution system, our water system is required to submit one triggered source sample for every active ground water well. Failure to collect all required triggered source samples is a violation of the monitoring requirements and we are required to notify you of this violation. If you have any questions regarding this violation, you may contact April Lombardo at 409-883-4003
