City says water is safe

RAYMONDVILLE —The city’s water plant is pumping out safe drinking water.

This week, the city sent residents a notice stating the plant’s water had exceeded the maximum contaminate level for trihalomethanes, or TTHM.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires water suppliers to send such notices when TTHM levels rise above the federal standard level of 0.080.
