NHCRWA Implements Drought Contingency Plan Stage 1

The City of Houston (COH), the primary source of water for the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA), entered stage one of the COH Drought Contingency Plan on June 21, 2022, due to the observed drop in annual rainfall amounts and higher-than-normal daily temperatures.

    • Saturdays and Wednesdays for single family residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses.

Northeast Water Purification Plant Expansion

In anticipation of additional water from the Luce Bayou Interbasin Transfer Project, the regional water authorities and the City of Houston, forged a partnership to accomplish an expansion of the Northeast Water Purification Plant (NEWPP), with each paying it’s fair share of the costs. This multi-billion dollar project, to be completed in phases over the next six to nine years, will increase the treatment capacity from the current 80 million gallons a day, to 400 million gallons a day. The expansion project is considered to be the largest design-build project of it’s kind underway in the US today.

About the District

History

For more than 50 years, Harris County WCID 132 has provided water, sanitary sewer and drainage fa-cilities to customers inside its boundaries. (See District boundaries here.)

The District was created by the Texas Legislature in 1969 and converted to a municipal utility district in 1977. The District operates under the provisions of the Texas Water Code.

The District covers 327 acres of land located 20 miles northwest of downtown Houston. We serve single family residents in portions of Cypresswood and Cypressdale subdivisions, all of Cypresswood Place, all or a portion of five apartment complexes plus 43 acres of commercial development along Kuykendahl Road. The district serves an estimated 4,100 residential and commercial customers daily.

Water supply for the District is provided by an integrated system shared with Cypresswood Utility District through a joint facilities agreement consisting of three water wells and two emergency water intercon-nects. Surface water is purchased from the North Harris County Regional Water Authority.

The District is located within the boundaries of the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District which regulates groundwater withdrawals and is subject to an annual permit issued by the subsidence district.

Wastewater treatment is provided by a facility located south of Cypress Creek. The District participates in the maintenance and operation of the facility along with six other utility districts.
As of Dec. 31, 2018, the District owned net capital assets of $3,264,052 based on the most recent au-dited financial statement. (See audited financial statements here.)
