Mosquito "Barrier Spray" - Oct 25-26

Spraying scheduled October 25 or 26, 2018
Buffalo Ridge Park - 5720 Parkwood Tr.
http://www.haltomcitytx.com/mosquito-monitoring

buffalo ridge park haltom city texasThursday, October 25 or Friday, October 26, 2018, Haltom City Environmental Services will conduct a "barrier spray" for mosquitoes on the vegetation along the concrete paths in Buffalo Ridge Park.

The spraying is not in response to a recent positive West Nile Virus sample of mosquitoes. This is a proactive approach resulting from an increase of mosquitoes in the the park...a product of the extensive rain we have had in the past couple of weeks. The weather will dictate whether the spraying takes place on the 25th or 26th.

Signs will be posted along the trail during and after the spraying. Please refrain from walking in to or touching the vegetation along the trail while these signs are posted. The product label, Bayer Suspend Polyzone®, states "Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet".

Haltom City reminds residents of the importance of taking personal protective measures to safeguard against the West Nile Virus. Residents should routinely dump standing water on their property, use repellent and cover their extremities from dusk to dawn. Haltom City has compiled a list of ways You Can Protect Yourself from mosquito-borne illnesses.

TEXRail Horn Tests

Residents may be hearing an increase in noise (horns) at railroads crossings here in Haltom City in recent days. Trinity Metro has increased testing of trains and crossing equipment in preparation for the new TEXRail commuter rail service that begins on January 5, 2019. This testing is mandated by the Federal Railroad Administration when certifying a new train service. This is a lengthy, detailed process that ensures all trains and intersection crossings are working properly.

During this period, the train horn is required to sound at all crossings in Haltom City. These crossings in Haltom City are designated as Quiet Zones once the service starts on January 5, 2019. Once the Quiet Zones are in place, you should hear far fewer train horns; however, a train engineer may still sound the horn in emergencies, such as a vehicle or person on the track or workers within 25 feet of the track or at the discretion of the crew, as appropriate.

If you have questions about the process, please contact Trinity Metro at 817-215-8785 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Scam Alert Regarding Water Quality Tests

haltom city texas water tower 820 haltom roadRecently, on various social media platforms, there have been "Test My Water" posts that solicit visits to a particular web page and purchases of their "testing" products. First, Haltom City’s drinking water is safe to drink. Second, it appears, to a large extent, that “Test My Water” is trying to place doubt about Haltom City’s (and other surrounding cities'...see below) drinking water quality so that people will purchase their product and visit their website. Third, all of Haltom City’s tests show the water to be safe for drinking.

Our drinking water in Haltom City continues to be rated “superior” by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. The Haltom City Public Works Department conducts over 50 bacteriological tests each month to insure that the city’s drinking water is safe to drink. With those 50 samples, the city also tests the water for Chlorine, Ammonia, Monochloramine and Nitrites. Additionally, our tests for chlorine are conducted over 200 times a month.

While we are constantly testing our water quality to ensure it's safety, we also issue an annual water quality report.


The City of Garland Water Department has received information that an internet company has advertised water testing services for water customers in North Texas. Wes Kucera, managing director of Garland Water and Wastewater Utilities, reminds residents to be alert.

“It is important for our water customers to know that the Garland Water Utilities Department works continuously to monitor and test our drinking water from the supplier pipeline all the way to the customer’s tap,” said Wes. “Our daily tests and our recent annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) show that all test results are within safe limits for drinking water.”

The company states they are supported by the Texas Water Utilities Association (TWUA). When contacted, the TWUA confirmed they have no affiliation with this company. In addition, the company’s contact information and location are missing from the TestMyWater.org website. Our drinking water in Garland continues to be rated “superior” by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. Companies claiming that the drinking water needs to be tested by an outside source are usually trying to sell consumers an unnecessary and expensive filtration system for their home.
