Bridgeland System Conversion – 9/27/2021

Update: September 28, 2021

Please be advised, due to unexpected field issues the conversion has been pushed back. More details and a date for reschedule is currently underway. Thank you for your patience! Should you have any questions, please call Inframark at (281) 579 4500.


Dear Harris County MUD #419 & 489 Resident,

The Harris County MUD 418 public water system, (PWS) ID 1013329, will be converting four sections of Harris County MUD #489 served by Water Plant #1 to Water Plant #2. Please be advised, Water Plant #1 utilizes a combination of groundwater and surface water, while Water Plant #2 operates off groundwater only.

The main difference between the two sources is the required disinfectant. Surface water requires chloramines (a mix of chlorine and ammonia), while groundwater calls for free chlorine. Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Free chlorine is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods, while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants.

The conversion will take place on Monday, September 27, 2021, and is meant to provide relief on the demand at Water Plant #1. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of disinfectant conversion that will resolve within two weeks.

The sections that will be affected include:

  • Mission Tejas
  • Enchanted Rock
  • McKinney Falls
  • Goose Island

Please see attached map with the affected area highlighted in yellow. Additionally, Water Plant #1 service area is highlighted in blue, and Water Plant #2 service area is highlighted in green.

Please reach out to Inframark’s Customer Service at (281) 579-4500, should you have any questions or concerns.

Recission: Stage 2 of Drought Contingency Plan

Dear Water Customer,

On August 30, 2021 Harris County MUD No. 418 implemented Stage 2 of its Drought Contingency Plan (“DCP”). The target for Stage 2 is a 20% water usage reduction through restrictive measures and community participation. At this time, the target goals in reducing the daily water demand as set forth by the DCP Stage 2 have been achieved for 7 straight days and we can rescind water use restrictions, per TCEQ.

Please be advised, with the recission of Stage 2, Stage 1 of the DCP goes back into effect. As a reminder, the target for Stage 1 is a 10% water usage reduction through voluntary means. The District would like to thank residents for their cooperation.

Though the Stage 2 restrictions are no longer in place, we encourage residents to continue irrigating on alternate days (Even addresses Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday; Odd addresses Saturday, Monday Wednesday). For more information on how to program your sprinkler controller, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUoir-wk2Yc or your MUD District websites (hcmud419.com or hcmud489.com).

Please reach out to Inframark’s Customer Service department at (281) 579-4500 if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Bob Thomas/Dr. Anthony McBride
President, Board of Directors
