DRINKING WATER SAFE in The Woodlands, despite rumors
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 Agency (WJPA) reports 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.
