Drinking Water Quality
The City of Anna’s water system is heavily regulated and routinely tested by our staff and by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Water samples are tested by an independent lab and results are reported to TCEQ and the City.
Below is a summary of the routine testing we do on our water.
City of Anna Daily/Monthly Testing
Disinfectant/Chlorine - Checked daily in the distribution system at various locations as outlined by our monitoring plan; also checked at each entry point/pump station.
Bacteriological - Testing is completed twice per month at various locations as outlined by our monitoring plan.
Ph - Checked once per week at various locations.
City of Anna - Other Testing
Lead/Copper - Every 3 years.
Asbestos - Every 9 years (with waiver).
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
Annual Testing - TCEQ conducts independent annual testing at each of our entry points and sites throughout the water system. This testing varies year-to-year depending upon rule changes and EPA requirements. The monitoring frequency for contaminants is complex and varies by system and constituent. The results generated by TCEQ are used to prepare the annual water quality report which is published every year. In late Spring of each year, the City will publish the water quality report for the previous calendar year.
