The Central Harris County Regional Water Authority is lifting Stage 2 of its’ Drought Contingency Plan (DCP), due to reduced demand. Please keep in mind that Stage 1 of the DCP remains in effect.
We thank you for your cooperation during the implementation of Stage 2 of its DCP. We will continue to monitor water use and will provide further notice if the drought stage changes or if Stage 1 drought conditions are lifted.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation,
Harris County MUD No. 304

Please be advised that due to the Regional Water Authority Surface Water algae bloom and extreme heat forecast we will be transitioning from surface water to ground water provided by water well #1 at the Water Plant. We will be closely monitoring the situation and working with the Central Harris Regional Water Authority as updates arise. As conditions improve, we will notify all affected communities that we will be transitioning back to surface water. In the interim we will be flushing the district to mitigate any water quality issues.
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

Precision Utility has received a notice from the Regional Water Authorities that surface water provided through the regional water authorities have received complaints about water taste and odor. The cause of this is linked to algae blooming influenced by temperature.
A notice provided by the Regional Water Authorities will be included with this memo to provide more information on the cause of this issue. The latest update provided stated that they are actively trying to correct this issue, however we should have a contingency plan on standby in case water quality doesn’t improve.
The contingency plan for our districts would be running the groundwater wells in place of surface water, until their issues with surface water have been corrected. The main reason that we have not moved forward with this plan already is due to additional water quality issues that may arise from using only well water. These water quality issues may affect color, taste, and odor.
For now, to mitigate this issue, Precision Utility technicians are flushing affected districts to bring in fresher water.
Mr. Bonaventure has been in contact with NHCRWA and CHCRWA Operators. Any updates provided on this issue will be forwarded to all interested parties.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
