From Staff Reports

The most current report on the quality of the drinking water the Town of Prosper distributes to residences and businesses is now available at Town Hall and the various Town facilities, according to Public Works Director Frank Jaromin.

"The Water Quality Report is a publication that is not only required by state and federal regulations, but also serves to provide residents with critical information regarding this important resource," he said.

The report, while distributed this year, reflects results from 2012. A scanned copy of the report is also available online on the Public Works page of www.prospertx.gov. Once at the site, the Public Works page is accessible under the Department’s pull-down menu.

Published and distributed by the Public Works Department, the report is developed in conjunction with the North Texas Municipal Water District and is produced annually. Its distribution also satisfies a requirement of the Town’s State water distribution permit. It contains critical information on the results of quality tests that are conducted on the water which Prosper purchases and distributes through its system.

In addition, it includes a list of substances which could be in the water; the latest information on the overall quality of the water; a handy list of definitions and acronyms; important water-related health information; and a detailed list of substances detected in the water as a result of a random sampling.

"The report is another way that we convey critical information to our residents. Anyone with any question regarding the water and its quality should carefully review the report. And, of course, we are always open to answering questions or dealing with concerns," he concluded.

Residents are reminded that the Town remains in Stage 3 of the water conservation program, limiting the automatic irrigation of lawns and landscaping to once a week. Other restrictions are also in place and are listed on the Town website, under the Departments tab, Water Conservation page.
