No Comments

By News Staff

La Grange has been dealing with its own water quality issues for over three years. The City first received a violation notice for high levels of trihalomethanes in December 2015 and ever since has been out of compliance standards set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

In an interview with the Record last week, Assistant City Manager Frank Menefee said he expects the water system to regain compliance after the next round of quarterly testing, which should be complete by March.

The Nov. 18 fundraiser at the La Grange KC Hall for injured Fayette County Deputy C.J. Lehmann raised over $90,000. All of the money raised will go to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Memorial and Benevolent Society to benefit Lehmann and any other deputies who become injured in the line of duty.

The La Grange Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas courts in La Grange, Hostyn and Plum, and the Junior Catholic Daughters of La Grange organized the event.

“It was really the whole community who made this happen. We were just the vehicle,” said Randal Proske of the La Grange KCs. Lehmann suffered a shotgun blast to the face on Nov. 1 while attempting to apprehend a wanted felon. Doctors removed his left eye and have been trying to save the right eye ever since. He is scheduled to undergo surgery by a specialist in Alabama on Tuesday.

Officials Say Water Quality Issues to Be Resolved Soon

Fayette County Water Control and Improvement District – Monument Hill sent out notices last month informing customers of a water quality violation. However, the water district told the Record this week that a recently-dug well should fix the problem.

“The notice is kind of afterthe-fact,” said Lori Steffek, office manager for Fayette County WCID – Monument Hill.

The notice sent to customers on Dec. 27 says analysis of the district’s water exceeded the maximum contaminant level of trihalomethanes (TTHM). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency limits TTHMs in a public water supply at 0.080 milligrams per liter. The analysis showed TTHM levels at 0.87 mg/L and 0.0801 mg/L in the Monument Hill water.
