Bilma PUD provides water and wastewater service to nearly 1,800 customers, consisting mostly single family residences. The District’s water is supplied primarily by North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA), which is supplied to the District at Water Plant #1. Water Plant #2 has a well that is capable of producing 1,500 gpm (gallons per minute).
Water delivered to Water Plant #1 by the NHCRWA is disinfected with chloramines, which the operator monitors and can adjust residual levels to ensure proper water quality. Water plant #2 produces water from it’s well and is also disinfected with chloramines. The operator tests disinfection residuals on a daily basis to maintain TCEQ standards for proper water quality.
All of the wastewater from the residents and businesses is discharged into the sanitary sewer collection system; which then flows by gravity and pumps to the wastewater treatment plant. The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 16934 T C Jester Blvd., Spring, TX 77379. Currently this facility is treating about 350,000 gallons per day, with the capacity to treat 500,000 gallons per day. Once treated, the plant effluent is disinfected and discharge into the county drainage ditch adjacent to the facility. The quality of the discharged water is monitored on a daily basis, and must meet criteria established by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
