City Of WF Scores High On Quality Of Drinking Water

A new report circulating throughout the City of Wichita Falls indicates the city water has been classified as "superior."

47,000 households in city limits will soon receive the 2011 Drinking Water Quality Report, produced by the city's Water Purification Department. The report, required by the federal government, is intended to keep residents aware of the quality of their drinking water. The report contains information concerning water quality, detailed analysis, watershed descriptions and maps, along with customer service information and other helpful information. There will even be a children's page.

Utilities Operations Manager, Daniel Nix, stresses that the department's employees work 24/7 to ensure both residents and visitors alike experience the highest quality of water available. He says, "the excellent rating indicated in the water report is the result of their efforts and dedication. I hope the public is pleased with superior classification we've earned from the TCEQ."

The TCEQ, or Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, has inspected the water system in Wichita Falls, and has determined it is compliant with the guidelines set forth by both the commission and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
