New Forms for Reporting Total Coliform Rule Compliance
We prefer that you submit these sample results electronically. We have a program in place to provide technical assistance for laboratories implementing these processes. Contact us if you need help setting up electronic reporting.
Hard Copy Submittal
Starting October 1, 2009, laboratories that submit PWS compliance sample results in hard copy must use these forms (PDF files. Help with PDF.):
- For PWSs that submit fewer than five compliance samples a month, use the TCEQ Microbial Monitoring Form. (PDF, XLS)
- For PWSs that submit five or more samples a month, use the TCR Multiple Sample Data Summary Form. (PDF, DOC)
- Letter explaining new laboratory reporting procedures (sent July 3).
If laboratories submit hard copies of these results in any other format, we will reject the submission. As a result, the PWS could be issued a violation for each rejected submission.
Procedures for Positive Samples Will Change
If a sample result is positive, you must immediately fax the result to 512-239-3666. Please use the TCEQ Microbial Monitoring Positive Result From. (PDF, DOC) As of December 1, 2009, this form only will be required for submission of all positve results.
