Water Quality & Conservation


Water quality is routinely tested both within HCWCID 156 and at other locations in the CLCWA area. During the past year, all measurements of contaminants in the water supply were found to be below the maximum allowable levels established by the EPA.

Complete test results for the previous calendar year are presented in the Consumer Confidence Report, along with general information and recommendations for water conservation. 

In addition to the stewardship of water and sanitary sewer services, HCWCID 156 is responsible for ensuring that storm water drainage be at peak efficiency during storms. To assist, residents are requested to do their part by not illegally dumping landscaping debris or household materials into the storm sewer catch basins.

Used oil may be recycled at CLCWA’s facility at 17507 El Camino Real. See the CCR referenced above for further information.

All Harris County residents may dispose of their hazardous waste at the Westpark Consumer Recycle Center.

More information about stormwater, flooding, water quality, conservation, reuse water and sewer systems can be found on the CLCWA webpage.

Utility Usage History


Per the mandate of House Bill 3693, all political subdivisions that are responsible for paying electric, water or natural gas utility services must:

  1. Record in an electronic repository the political subdivision’s metered amount of electricity, water or natural gas consumed; and the aggregate costs for those utility services.

  2. Report the same information on a publicly accessible internet web site with an interface designed for ease of navigation.

DISTRICT’s only operating system is a wastewater lift station located in the Pine Brook subdivision.

The Electrical Usage History for that unit can be found in the Bookkeepers Report listed under the Financial Section


City of Houston Storm Drainage Fee

***Applies ONLY to WCID #156 Houston BAY OAKS RESIDENTS***

DISTRICT’s infrastructure includes Storm Drainage:

  • For Bay Oaks residents, an area located in the City of Houston, street drainage is routed via underground storm sewer pipe connecting to CLCWA’s underground storm sewer system that provides storm drainage to the rest of Bay Oaks. Because we are providing infrastructure for the tie-in with CLCWA, we have taken the position that our Houston customers should not be subject to the City of Houston storm drainage fee. CLCWA has secured relief from these fees for its customers; however, attempts to secure relief from this unjust fee on residents in District have not been successful.

  • For Pine Brook residents, an area located in the City of Pasadena, street drainage is routed via underground storm sewer pipe to the drainage ditch on the northeast side of Middlebrook Drive. This drainage ditch empties into the Brookwood pond and then joins other surface drainage to the Galveston Bay via Mud Lake and Clear Lake.
