Notice to residents:
At 7:15 am our operator, Inframark, received an alert regarding low levels in our storage tanks. Upon investigation, they found a well had an electrical fault causing pressure to quickly drop in the system. As a precautionary measure, a boil water notice was issued. To aid in the restoration of water and pressure the interconnect was opened, and by 10:00 am pressure was restored to the facility and tank levels were climbing.
As previously stated, the boil water notice is precautionary. Bacteriological samples have been collected, and results are expected within 24 hours. Once we have favorable results from the laboratory the boil water notice will be rescinded.
The Fort Bend County MUD 151 water system has issued a boil water notice to residents due to a temporary system-wide loss of pressure.
