Valley Falls PSD Drinking Water

Monitoring Requirements Not Met for
Our water system violated drinking water monitoring requirements within the past year. Even though these were not emergencies, you, as our customers, have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.
We are required to monitor your drinking water on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During periods listed in the table below, we did not monitor or test as required and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.
What should I do?
There is nothing you need to do at this time.
The table below lists the monitoring we did not conduct, how often we are supposed to sample and how many samples we are supposed to take, and when the samples should have been taken.
