League City’s Public Water System has again been rated “Superior” by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The rating comes after a July 17, 2018 inspection by the TCEQ that included a comprehensive review of all operations including: monitoring, regulatory reporting documentation, staff licensing, and other key elements of water system operations and maintenance.
TCEQ recognizes overall excellence in the operation of a public water system by designating a system as “Superior” if a system meets and maintain a higher set of standards that are required of all public water systems. These standards include: excelled efforts in protecting public health, ensuring reliable operations and water supply for the system’s customers, compliance with regulatory requirements, and environmental stewardship. According to state records, only 13 percent of community water systems in Texas achieved a “Superior” ranking in 2015.
During the TCEQ inspection, which occurs every three years for a City, there were zero violations or areas of concern and the inspector ended the day with a compliment on the exceptional state of League City’s drinking water operations and investment in utility infrastructure.
League City first achieved a “Superior Public Water System” status in the early 2000’s. The City would like to acknowledge its dedicated Water Production staff on their continued commitment to operate and maintain the City’s water system.
