Triggered Source Monitoring and Reporting Violation:
Ground Water Rule
The City of Yoakum PWS ID # failed to collect the required number of triggered source bacteriological
samples for fecal indicator monitoring of the ground water system during Month/Year. 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 Michael Bennett at 361-293-6321.
