DRINKING WATER SAFE in The Woodlands, despite rumors

By  | 
Despite numerous rumors throughout social media, the two major municipal water districts serving residents in The Woodlands report water is safe to drink.
The Woodlands Joint Powers Association (WJPA) reports early Sunday evening that rumors regarding drinking water being shut down is totally untrue. At this time Sunday afternoon, drinking water for residents of The Woodlands is totally safe. Here is contact information: 855-H2o-SAVE (855-426-7283)
For residents in Harris-Montgomery Counties MUD 386, drinking water remains SAFE, according to municipal utility district officials. All drinking water plants are operational at this time. The wastewater system is operational, but is being overfilled with stormwater. This is resulting in wastewater mixed with stormwater that may escape the system. Please try to stay out of flood water, if possible. This does not impact drinking water, which remains SAFE. To report MAJOR water or wastewater emergencies, please contact Municipal District services at 281-290-6503.
