On the date of 10/4/2018, an employee of Texas HHSC found copper sediment in the water coming from a water fountain. The copper sediment sample was recorded and documented on the date of 10/4/2018. It was then that an employee taped the copper sediment sample on top of said water fountain. This was an attempt to warn and inform Texas HHSC employees along with contractors about copper in their water supply coming from a particular water fountain.

The Texas HHSC has had some major plumbing issues over the years it’s been open. However this is not surprising considering there was a rat infestation which caused a $60,000 vermin infestation last year in 2017 at the Texas HHSC building. Sewer rats were found in water pipes causing damage. (Ref: https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/29/texas-health-regulators-overrun-several-hundred-rats/)
Any exact plans as to how the removal of copper in the Texas HHSC water supply have not been confirmed or made public yet.
