Boil Water Notice Rescinded

Boil Water Notice Rescinded
September 15, 2017

Version en español

On August 29, 2017, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Harris County Utility District 6 public water system, TX1010501, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption
purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of September 15, 2017.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Mirna Bonilla-Odums at 281-460-0189.

Hurricane Harvey FAQs

Is my water safe to drink?

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of September 15, 2017.

What has happened to the HCUD6 wastewater collection system?

Lift Station #1: Put online last Thursday and is flowing to Jackrabbit Sewer Plant.

Lift Station #2: Just now put online and pumping sewer to LS #1.

What has happened to the Jackrabbit Regional WWTP?

Jackrabbit is still operating under limited capacity we are asking all contributing participants to continue conserving water going down the sewer system.

What actions can homeowners take? 

Residents of HCUD6 can provide the most beneficial action by limiting the amount of water used as much as possible. Refrain from bathing, washing clothes, and using your dishwasher. Showers, use of toilets, brushing teeth are acceptable. If you experience a sanitary sewer backup, contact ST at 281 398-8211 and they will come out and help you.

What precautions should I take with the flood water?
  • Whether the water is deep or shallow, floodwaters are dangerous. They can carry debris, pollution, sharp objects and nasty critters. Keep children out of floodwaters, wash hands thoroughly, and disinfect or throw out items that have come in contact with floodwaters. 
  • Whether your yard got a little wet, or your house has water inside, be SMART about cleaning up the mess: Wear gloves and dispose of items that cannot be thoroughly cleaned. 
  • There will be many stray animals and pets because of the flooding. NEVER approach unfamiliar animals.
  • The floodwaters brought more than just damage and debris. Mosquitos will start breeding in standing water. Dump/clean out containers with water (birdbaths, buckets, toys, pet bowls) to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

How will ST handle my billing needs?

Residents of HCUD6 may have received an E-Bill. At this time, payments on the bill is suspended.  A bill will be generated next month combining 2 months usage, allowing residents an extra month to pay their usage. Penalties will not be assessed and residents that experienced leaks during the storm should contact our Customer Service department to assist with leak adjustments.

Whose fault is this? Didn't the MUDs prepare?

MUDs are designed and required to build to certain criteria to protect customers from many events. Harvey brought in excess of 50 inches of rain to our area. In an area with the topography that Houston has, there is no amount of planning and preparation that can adequately deal with 50 inches of rain. HCUD6 has taken extreme measures to protect its facilities and its customers but this event was of such great magnitude there was no way to repair or mitigate what this storm brought.

SUMMARY:

We are using all available resources to restore Jackrabbit Road WWTP to lift the water limitation restrictions as well as get the Water treatment plant operational to rescind the boil water notice ASAP.

Our primary concern is to protect the health and safety of the public and all actions taken will be with that goal in mind.

Conservation Tips

The average person uses 50 - 75 gallons of water every day. Becoming waste conscious you can reduce your usage. Saving water saves money and also helps protect our most precious resource.

These are some practical water conservation tips:

  • Wash only full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher.
  • Do not run water continuously when washing dishes by hand.
  • Attach low-flow faucet aerators to faucets.
  • Take short showers instead of baths. A full bath requires approximately 36 gallons of water. A five minute shower using a low-flow restrictor will use 15 - 25 gallons.
  • Install low-flow shower heads and toilets. Low flow toilets typically use 1/2 the water of a standard toilet.
  • Don't leave the water running while brushing your teeth and/or shaving.
  • Check for leaking faucets and toilets and repair them. A leaking tap, dripping once per second, wastes six gallons of water a day. A leaking toilet can waste up to 5,000 gallons per day.
  • Use a nozzle on your hose that will stop the water flow when appropriate.
  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways and sidewalks.
  • Store drinking water in the refrigerator, rather than allowing the tap to run for a cold glass of water.
