CLCWA, Harris Co. WCID 156, Harris Co. WCID 161

On Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 9:30 p.m., the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the CLCWA (ID: TX1010056), Harris Co. WCID 156 (ID: TX1013174) and Harris Co. WCID 161 (ID: TX1013612) public water systems, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of Sunday, February 21, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact the Clear Lake City Water Authority at 281-488-1164.

Customers should flush their water system by running cold-water faucets for at least one minute, cleaning automatic ice makers by making and discarding several batches of ice, running refrigerator water dispensers for a minute, and running water softeners through a regeneration cycle.

Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).

If you are still experiencing low water pressure, first, please try to unscrew your sink faucet aerator screens (at the end of the faucet) and clear out any debris buildup. Next, please check your water pressure at the outside faucet closest to your meter box. If the pressure is good outside then you likely have something reducing pressure inside your home. If there is still an issue, please call us and a utility tech can be sent out. Our phones are answered after hours by an answering service and a Utility Tech is always available 24 hours. Please report leaks at 281-488-1164.

Reports of taste and odor issues have been received. To supplement the water pressure faster a few of CLCWA’s wells were used. As operations return to normal this week, we will work on flushing the areas experiencing issues taste and odor quality issues.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
