WATER QUALITY UPDATE
Walnut Creek Special Utility District received final approval from TCEQ to install a chlorine dioxide generator at their water treatment facility which supplies the City of Rhome with surface water. The generator was installed on August 1, 2017, and preliminary testing showed a 78% reduction in trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids (HAA5s). The District believes that their averages for these byproducts should be below the maximum levels within two quarters. The City of Rhome water quality should see the same results since the majority of the water used by the City is from Walnut Creek Special Utility District.
