Notice of Violation, Failure to Conduct All Required Bacteriological Sampling; MONITORING, ROUTINE, MINOR (REVISED TOTAL COLIFORM RULE)

  • Published
  • 17th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron


Monitoring Requirements Not Met for: GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE

Our system failed to collect every required coliform sample. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct this situation.

We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During December 2023, we did not complete all monitoring or testing for coliform bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time.

What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time. You may continue to drink the water. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, we are required to notify you within 24 hours.

What is being done?

Six samples minimum are required to be taken monthly, but only five were accomplished for the month of December 2023. We collected every required coliform sample in the following month, January 2024, and are no longer in violation.

For more information, please contact A1C Eddy Tsui at 325-654-3286.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Goodfellow Air Force Base. Public Water System ID#: TX2260027.
