BURKBURNETT - The City of Burkburnett sent out a press release Tuesday rescinding their previous public notice for nitrate levels exceeding standards in their water.
Read the full press release below:
The City of Burkburnett is officially rescinding the previous public notice issued on August 14th for nitrate levels exceeding regulatory standards. Upon notification by TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) regarding the proposed nitrate violation, the City of Burkburnett took an additional sample on August 17th to the Red River Authority of Texas Environmental Laboratory which resulted in a reading of 2.05 mg/L which is below the required Maximum Contaminant Level of 10 mg/L. In addition, TCEQ and the City also took additional samples on August 25th resulting in a reading of 4.07 mg/L and 4.9 mg/L. Both the City of Burkburnett’s sample and TCEQ’s sample results show that we are in compliance with state and federal regulations.
We do want to make our citizens aware that due to TCEQ’s regulations, you will be receiving an additional notice in the mail re-stating the language from the original notice that was published on August 14th. This will not change the status of this rescind notice.
We would like to thank our citizens for their patience during this process and apologize for any inconvenience or hardships this incident may have created while the City worked diligently with TCEQ to resolve the matter. As always, we are dedicated to observing all state and federal guidelines to ensure the utmost quality of our community’s drinking water resource and to maintain clean, safe drinking water not only today, but for the future needs of the City of Burkburnett.
