Well Repair Blast and Stage I Water Conservation

Good News: The Water Well Repair Project for Harris County MUD No. 46 has been completed ahead of schedule!

The Board of Directors would like to thank our neighbors at Harris County MUD No. 109 for graciously extending the use of the emergency interconnect during this time.

The District will be receiving water through its own water well effective Tuesday, 25 October 2022. Please note that because the direction of water flow will change after the interconnect with Harris County MUD No. 109 is terminated, some sediment caused from the water mains may appear in your tap water. Because it is necessary to flush the end lines of the water mains, it is recommended that you allow your water to run for a few minutes until it is clear in color. There is no need to boil the water before use.

Thank you for your compliance with the Stage II water restrictions during the period of the Well Repair. Your consideration is greatly appreciated!

Visit www.hcmud46.org to check for any District water restrictions due to current drought conditions.

Water Restriction for Non-Essential Water Usage in Effect Until Further Notice

As you know, the District’s Water Well is under repair, and the District is currently receiving water from our neighbor, Harris County MUD 109.

The District’s Operator and Engineer are working diligently on getting water restored to our District. In the meantime, along with Harris County MUD 109, we need to continue to conserve water.

Until further notice please restrict all non-essential water usage, including watering of lawns, car washing, and power-washing of driveways, etc. The Harris County MUD 46 Board of Directors is appreciative of your understanding and compliance and will, of course, will update you as soon as the repairs are made.
