The District would like to reassure residents that the District is not affected by the City of Houston’s boil water notice issued on February 17, 2021 (or any boil water notice issued by neighboring municipalities or MUDs). The District’s water supply and facilities were not at any time affected by the City of Houston’s boil water notice. During this week’s unprecedented weather events, District facilities did not lose power. While water pressure in the District was temporarily reduced on February 17, at no time did it fall below TCEQ standards that require a boil water notice.
The District is aware of the City of Houston’s boil water notice issued on February 17, 2021. The District is not affected by this boil water notice and there is no need for District residents to boil water prior to use. The District’s facilities are currently operating normally during these challenging weather conditions and backup facilities are available should the need arise.
To preserve the District’s system, please DO NOT drip water as it could lead to District wide problems.
Residents are encouraged to refer to the District’s website for updates.
