WHCRWA Water System Situational Update
Friday, February 19, 2021 – 6 p.m.
As of Friday afternoon, Feb. 19, the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA) continues to do everything possible to restore water supply to our utility district customers.
A boil water notice continues to be in effect, and we are working with the City of Houston to pressurize the waterline that supplies the WHCRWA Pump Station.
Currently, the WHCRWA is receiving only a fraction of its contracted amount of surface water from the City of Houston waterline. However, as of 4 p.m., the WHCRWA received enough supply to begin delivering emergency water to some MUDs experiencing critically low water supplies.
The WHCRWA continues to provide as much water as possible to our utility district customers during this time, while trying to maintain adequate pressures within our system. The WHCRWA Pump Station is currently monitored twenty-four hours a day, and constant communication is maintained with the operators on issues at our utility district facilities.
We do not currently have an estimated delivery time for restored service. Once adequate water supply has been received from the City of Houston, the WHCRWA will provide water to its utility district customers as quickly as possible.
Updates will be provided as more information is available.
