The City of Willow Park water system PWS ID 1840027 has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code(30 TAC), section 291, 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.

Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is safe from microbial contamination.

This/These violation(s) occurred in the monitoring period s) of the 3rd quarter. The violation was that the report was turned in late.

We are making sure that the required report will be turned in on a timely matter going forward. If you have any question regarding the matter, you may contact the Director of Public Works at 817-441-7708.

Backflow Prevention Program

The purpose of this program is to inform the citizens and insure that proper safeguards are in place to protect our drinking (potable) water system from the potential contamination risks imposed through cross connections. Backflow can occur when either a backsiphonage or a backpressure condition exists.

Backsiphonage backflow occurs when a vacuum is induced on a piping system; just like drinking from a glass with a straw.

Some typical situations in which backsiphonage may occur include:

  • Water Main Breaks
  • Hydrant Flushing or Fire Fighting
  • Undersized Plumbing in your Home or Business

Backpressure backflow may occur when a water user has an unprotected water line attached to a pressurized container and the pressure in the container becomes greater than the pressure within the City’s water mains.

Many common household uses of water may post a public health threat to our potable water, including:

  • Hose connections to chemical solutions sprayed to feed lawns or shrubs
  • Toilets without anti-siphon ball cocks
  • Lawn sprinkler systems
  • Chemically treated heating systems
  • Water softeners
  • Hose connections to a water outlet or laundry tub
  • Swimming pools
  • Solar Heating systems
  • Water operated sump drain devices

If you have questions concerning cross connection control and backflow prevention please call 817-441-7108
