Annual Water Report arriving in mailboxes


Cleburne residents will be receiving the annual Water Quality Report in mailboxes in the coming weeks.

The City of Cleburne sends out the report each summer to notify residents of the test results about the drink water’s quality. The 2019 report covers Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2018. It includes the results of city and state tests for various substances that can be found in surface water.

The 2019 results show Cleburne’s water is within the acceptable levels of substances as allowed by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. For another year, the City of Cleburne is ranked as a Superior Water Supply by the State of Texas.

The surface waters of Lake Pat Cleburne, and Lake Aquilla as well as ground water wells in the Twin Mountain-Travis Peak formation of the Trinity Aquifer provide Cleburne’s current water sources. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) completed an assessment of our source water and results indicate that some of our sources are susceptible to certain contaminants. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The sampling requirements for our water system are based on this susceptibility and previous sample data. Additional parameters like turbidity and total organic carbon (TOC) are also performed. Turbidity is a measurement of the cloudiness of water caused by suspended particles. We monitor it because it is a good indicator of water quality and the effectiveness of our filtration system and disinfectants. Percentage of TOC removal was measured each month and the system met all TOC removal requirements.

If you have any concerns or questions about your water supply, please contact the City of Cleburne Utility Department directly at 817-645-0946.
