Scheduled Spring Line Flushing Begins

Spring and summer months bring on more active biologic activity in our surface water; that is, the water that comes from lakes and rivers. Surface water is supplied by The North Harris County Regional Water Authority – NHCRWA. The water is treated and is safe but can pick up odors and taste variations over time. HCMUD18 uses both manual and automatic hydrant flushing to clear stale water. The water is still safe, just a nuisance in these conditions.

We are announcing a Spring flush to counteract any stale water before warm weather begins.

This is a scheduled, system-wide flush. However please report stale water issues at any time of the year to Eagle Water Management, the District’s Operations Company at 281-374-8989. Please let them know your location and the issues you are encountering. We track localized situations and log data against historic records to better understand the overall system. Eagle will send a crew to check the water near your location and flush those lines.
