Members of the De Beque Community,
In a continued effort to keep you apprised of the monitoring of our drinking water, we wanted to share the results of the latest samples taken in February 2021. The great news is that the level for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) was 44.1 ug/L. This level is significantly lower than the samples taken last summer and the numbers continue to decrease.
As you may recall, the benchmark for receiving a notice of a violation is calculated as an average over the most recent four quarters of sampling and any AVERAGE over 80 ug/L triggers a notice of a violation. Just as was the case with the last quarter, even though the recent sample level was 44.1, based upon the AVERAGE calculation, the Town may receive a violation for the current quarter. This information is being provided for you on a voluntary basis and is not mandated by the State.
The Town of De Beque is planning to collect more samples before the end of the current quarter to ensure that our optimizations continue to work to reduce the TTHM level to below the MCL. Based on the average of current results, and future results it is possible that we will not have a violation in the first quarter of 2021, but we still wanted you to be aware of the situation based on the most recent sample results. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is closely monitoring the situation and will determine if we are in compliance based on an average of all samples collected within the first quarter. If results at the end of the first quarter indicate a violation we will send another public notice within the required time frame.
Please feel free to reach out to me directly at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Beginning with April’s utility billing, the Town of De Beque will resume charging late fees and performing shutoffs on past due accounts. Please contact Town Hall to set up a payment arrangement if needed.
