The Board of Directors of Harris County WCID No. 132 has determined that it is in the best interest of the District to implement water conservation measures. Non-essential watering is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. beginning May 1 of each year and continuing through October 31. The following uses of water are non-essential and are prohibited:
- washing down of sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots, tennis courts, or other hard-surfaced areas;
- using water to wash down buildings or structures for purposes other than immediate fire protection;
- using water for dust control; and
- flushing gutters or permitting water to run or accumulate in any gutter or street.
Watering parks, foliage, grass and shrubbery with a handheld device is permitted during the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from May 1 through October 31. No person shall knowingly or intentionally allow the use of non-essential water during the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. May 1 through October 31 of any given year. Violations of this non-essential water use restriction is subject to termination of water service.
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.
