On September 6, 2017, the Department of Public Health and Environment (DPHE) notified the Colorado City Metropolitan District that Total Trihalomentanes (TTHM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5) levels exceeded the maximum allowed in drinking water. The department required the district to make public notification to customers of the violation. According to district manager Valdez, some 1,000 notices were published in compliance with state law.

In a letter dated November 2, 2017, DPHE notified the district that the examination of an additional sample evidenced an acceptable level of HAA5 in drinking water, rescinded the violation, and excused the public notice requirement. Having made the public notification by distribution of over 1,000 notices on October 4, 2017, the DPHE letter arrived a little late to prevent the district from incurring the expense of public notification. The DPHE letter, rescinding the violation, was distributed to the Board of Directors at their regularly scheduled monthly meeting at 6:00 p.m., November 14, 2017, at district offices.
