Date for Surface Water Conversion
The CCUD Board was recently notified that effective June 1st, the district will begin receiving surface water. The change in water disinfectant from chlorine to chloramines has been successfully completed without any complaints of district customers. Should customers experience any change in water color or water pressure during the change to surface water, please notify Water, Environmental & Technical Services, Inc at 281-469-2837. Please note you may notice a change in water flavor with the change to surface water.
North Harris County Regional Water Authority Rate Increase
Effective June 16th, the NHCRWA rate will increase from $5.06 to $5.56/1000 gallons of water consumed. This increase is directly related to the change from groundwater (well water) to surface water. Currently the average monthly residential NHCRWA bill is about $39.16 for 7,740 gallons of water used and with the new rate structure it will be about $43.03, a $3.87 increase.
Note: the insert in this month’s water bill incorrectly stated the conversion to surface water would begin June 16th. That is the date for the rate increase. The conversion to surface water will begin June 1st.
