Bolivar Peninsula SUDTemporary Disinfectant Conversion from Chloramine to Free Chlorine

The Bolivar Peninsula Special Utility District (BPSUD) PWS #0840044 Located in Crystal Beach, Texas (Galveston County) will implement a Temporary Disinfection Conversion from Chloramine to Free Chlorine Maintenance Program of the facility’s distribution system beginning on April 8, 2019.

BPSUD is coordinating with Lower Neches Valley Authority West Regional Water Treatment Plant (WRWTP) PWS #0360112, that will continue through April 18, 2019 at which time we will transition back to our normal use of chloramines as a disinfectant, depending on water usage the transition back to chloramines should be complete in 7 to 10

A temporary change has been made to the treatment process to improve the quality of water being served to our customers. Some taste and odor changes may briefly occur, but there are no associated health risks.

Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate
disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with
ammonia, is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods while also limiting
the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants. Prolonged use of chloramine coupled
with other factors that can impact water quality, such as high temperatures or stagnation of
water, may result in the growth and/or persistence of organic matter within the pipes of the
distribution system, which may hinder the ability to maintain an adequate disinfectant residual.
A temporary conversion to free chlorine, partnered with flushing activities, helps to rid
distribution pipes of this organic matter and improve the quality of your water overall.

If you have any questions, please call our Office at 409-684-3515.

Bolivar Peninsula SUD – Public Notice of Drinking Water Treatment Technique Violation(s)

Bolivar Peninsula SUD PWS 0840044 has violated the treatment technique requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Section 290, Subchapter F. Public water systems are required to properly disinfect water before distribution, maintain acceptable disinfection residuals within the distribution system, monitor the disinfectant residual at various locations throughout the distribution system, and report the results of that monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis.Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. During October 2018 and November 2018, sufficient levels of chlorine residual were not met in more than five percent (5%) of monthly samples.

The following actions are being taken to address this issue: Operators have started a more aggressive flushing program and adjusted chemical feeds to ensure disinfection levels stay above the minimum requirement level of 0.50mg/L in the affected areas of Crystal Beach and Port Bolivar. However, there have been no tests that were positive for Total Coliform Bacteria and at no time has there been a need to boil the water for consumption.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (i.e., people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).

If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact Jo Ball – General Manager or Clifford Howard – Plant Manager at 409-684-3515.
