Failure to Monitor Violation Notification

Within the next week or so, everyone in our service area will be receiving a postcard in the mail notifying them that the District failed to monitor for 1,2,3-trichloropropane (1,2,3-TCP) in three wells during the 2nd quarter of 2018.  Those wells were 9A, 13 and 17.   Click here to see the postcard.  This was an error on our part and the State requires all customers be notified.   Be reassured that 1,2,3-TCP has not been detected in any of our wells in the past and is not a contaminant we would expect to all of a sudden show up in the water.  All wells were tested in 2016 and no 1,2,3-TCP was detected.  The State then required all water agencies to perform one year of quarterly testing beginning in January 2018.  Although these three wells were not testing in the second quarter (April/May/June), they were tested in March 2018 and no 1,2,3-TCP was found.  The District will continue monitoring until all wells have been testing for four quarters as required by the State.
