Round 2 of Reuse Water Tests Starting This Week

- Round two of mandatory water testing on the emergency water reuse project is expected to start later this week.

Earlier this month the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality told city officials that the 30 day verification tests they completed did not have enough information.

So they ordered an additional 30 days of testing.

City officials say there is nothing wrong with the water itself, but since this project could set the standard for other cities to build their own reuse systems, The TCEQ wants to be extra sure that everything is taken care of.

“The more data we can provide the more data that we can submit that shows the process is working, the more comfortable everybody feels and that's basically what we're doing here, adding more water quality data that shows the process is performing as it should. Ee're just adding more data into the report,” says Public Works Director Russell Schreiber.

Schreiber says their goal is to get the water into the system in early July.

He says they will notify customers on their water bill when they have a start date set.
