Dear Harris County MUD #489 Resident,
As part of our continuing effort to optimize the infrastructure based on community demand, the Harris County MUD 418 public water system, (PWS) ID 1013329, will convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from free chlorine to chloramines in specific sections of Harris County MUD 489. The conversion will take place on Friday, April 29, 2022, and is meant to provide relief on the demand at Water Plant #2. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of disinfectant conversion.
Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramines are widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods, while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants.
The sections that will be affected include:
- Parkland Village
- Sheldon Lake
- Enchanted Rock
- McKinney Falls
- Dragonfly Park
Please see attached map outlined in red and blue. Please reach out to Inframark’s Customer Service at (281) 579-4500, should you have any questions or concerns.
