On December 13, 2022, the City of Bellaire received a notification from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) informing us that we failed to submit our disinfectant level quarterly operating report for the monitoring period beginning July 1, 2022, and ending September 30, 2022, before the submittal deadline. We submitted the report on December 14, 2022, immediately following receipt of the notification. Please be assured that during this monitoring period, your drinking water was safe: disinfectant levels were within acceptable limits, and the drinking water was safe from microbial contamination. Because we failed to file the report timely, TCEQ regulations require us to issue a public notification. We deeply regret this oversight.
The City of Bellaire takes public health very seriously and assures you that we have taken actions, and will continue to seek improvements, to prevent reporting delays such as this one from occurring in the future.
