How Did National Water Quality Month Start?
The history of National Water Quality Month originally dates back to two US congressional acts that were passed in the early 1970s in an effort to protect our water sources. Starting with the Clean Water Act that was passed in 1972, the federal government began taking steps to curb water pollution by making it illegal to dump high amounts of toxic materials into bodies of water. This set the standard for making sure that surface water was up to certain standards before being used for human consumption and recreation. In 1974, the Safe Drinking Water Act was passed to further protect the quality of groundwater and public water systems.
From there, National Water Quality Month was founded in 2005 by the Environmental Protection Agency and backed by the United Nations in an effort to promote civic discourse about how to conserve our natural water sources by starting conversations on what we can do in our own households and communities to ensure that we all have access to safe, clean drinking water for generations to come. #WaterQualityMonth2021 #WaterQuality

REMINDER! There is still time to register!

Join us for the Texas Well Owner Network (TWON) training being held July 22 at our general office located at 5300 S. Collins, Arlington, TX 76018.

The program is a free, educational training for Texas residents who depend on household wells for their water needs. TWON is for private well owners who want to become familiar with groundwater resources, septic system maintenance, well maintenance, water quality and water treatment. Private well owners are independently responsible for monitoring the quality of their wells. Essentially, they are the operators of their own water system and are responsible for ensuring that their water is safe.

Well owners may bring water samples the day prior to the event (Wednesday, July 21) to be screened for nitrate–nitrogen, total dissolved solids (TDS) and E. coli bacteria for $10. Pick up approved sample containers with instructions at the Northern Trinity Groundwater Conservation District Office, 1100Circle Drive, Suite 300 in Fort Worth; Tarrant County AgriLife Extension office, 200 Taylor Street, Suite 500, Fort Worth; or Trinity River Authority of Texas office, 5300 S.

Meet WEAT North Texas Section Deputy Treasurer, Blayne Johnson, P.E.!
 
Blayne has been a pipeline engineer and project manager with the Trinity River Authority of Texas for the last three years. Prior to joining TRA, he was a project engineer at an engineering consulting firm specializing in water and wastewater projects. In his spare time, Blayne enjoys mountain biking, distance running and other outdoor activities, as well as coaching runners who train for the Cowtown Marathon.
 
We asked Blayne what his favorite part of being on the EC is, and he says: "Definitely the people. All of the EC members are easy and fun to work with, which makes planning events go very smoothly. Personally, my favorite part of being in the EC is having a role in getting our members to engage with one another at our meetings, both on a technical level as well as socially."
 
Thanks for your dedication to WEAT, Blayne! Stay tuned to meet more of your EC soon.

We could sure use some help cleaning up Kickapoo Creek after the Tornado on April 22nd. Debris is everywhere in the water and very dangerous. We have property at Walkers Waterfront right across from Yupon Cove.
Thanks for staying open and not cancelling our stay for this weekend, we have been sooooo awaiting to go!😁😁
Now is the time for the Lake Livingston Dam to open there gates and start lowering the level. The NOAA has issued a flood warning for the Trinity River at Dallas and that water WILL be coming downstream. Maybe, just maybe after all these years TRA has learned something and will do whats right and what the people have been asking them to do.
Hey think y’all can get someone out here to take care of this?

On December 20, 2019, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA) was signed into law. Among other provisions, the NDAA adds certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to the list of chemicals subject to TRI reporting and establishes a framework for including additional PFAS on the TRI list. Note that the addition of these chemicals is immediate. Facilities in TRI-covered industry sectors should begin tracking and collecting data on these chemicals in 2020. Reporting on these chemicals will be due by July 1, 2021, for 2020 data.
