WJPA Water Distribution Flushing Set to Begin Jan. 30

The flushing will take approximately eight to ten weeks to complete.  Flushing of the water distribution system is a normal maintenance procedure recommended by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Each flushing valve (fire hydrant) in the system will be opened and allowed to flow water for a short period of time.

Naturally occurring minerals in the water, such as iron, will be agitated during the flushing process and may cause a temporary reddish or brown coloring in the water.
The coloring is a result of oxidation of naturally occurring dissolved iron in the water and does not affect the suitability of the water for drinking. However, if you observe the brown or reddish coloring,  please open faucets to flush out the water. Do not wash clothes until the coloring dissipates.

If you have any questions regarding the proposed flushing program, please contact the customer service division of The Woodlands Joint Powers Agency at 855-H2O-SAVE (855-426-7283) or visit  WJPA.org
