The surface water supply of the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Authority”) was not affected by City of Houston’s major water line break on Thursday, February 27, 2020.
There will not be a boil water notice issued by the Authority to its customers at this time.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (the “TCEQ”) requires that a boil water notice be issued if the water pressure in a public water system falls below the minimum requirement. The surface water the Authority receives from the City of Houston is conveyed from a different water treatment plant via a separate transmission line which never lost its pressure from the major line break.
In addition, the Authority monitors and tests the quality of the water frequently after it reaches the Authority’s facilities to ensure the integrity of the water we provide to our customers.
The Harris County Flood Control District closed on the purchase of the Raveneaux Country Club on January 30, 2020. The final purchase price for 27.63 acres of land was $11,496,427.20, which is also the current appraised value for the property.
The final deal includes a leaseback on the 27.63 acres, allowing the Club to continue operating for up to one year.
The Flood Control District will begin discussions with the Cypress Forest Public Utility District in February regarding an agreement to acquire the remaining acreage that primarily makes up the golf course.
Community engagement meetings are being planned for late March.
Cypress Forest Public Utility District will temporarily close the walking/bike path under the Champion Forest Bridge as Harris County Engineers will reconstruct the water outfall from Champion Forest Drive to Cypress Creek. It is expected the construction will begin January 6 and last 6 to 8 weeks weather permitting.
