Update Regarding Water Plant No. 1 Improvement Project

Posted on


            Harris County Water Control and Improvement District No. 96 is a water control and improvement district tasked with supplying water, collecting and treating wastewater, and controlling and diverting stormwater within its geographical boundaries.  In an effort to continue providing high quality water service to customers of the District, it is necessary for the District to make improvements to existing water facilities located in Water Plant No. 1, including constructing a water well and hydropneumatic tank and also recoating its existing ground water storage tank.

            Earlier this year the District commenced drilling a new water well, and the District’s contractor has notified the District that it will resume 24-hour drilling operations beginning Monday, September 25th.  The contractor anticipates 24-hour drilling operations to continue the entire week of September 25th.  The District apologizes for any inconvenience the 24-hour drilling operations may cause.  To mitigate the disturbance, the District has erected sound barriers and instructed the contractor to direct construction flood lights away from nearby homes.

            Although the overall construction project is anticipated to take nine to twelve months, 24-hour drilling operations will be limited.  The District will continue to notify residents about such operations prior to commencement.

            If you have any questions or concerns regarding the water plant improvement project, please contact the District Operator, Si Environmental, at 832-490-1500.
