Voluntary Water Use Restrictions

Dear Residents,

Please be advised the West Harris County Regional Water Authority has implemented Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plan. As a result, Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 290 (HC290), the water provider for the District, will also be implementing Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan (DCP). This means that the irrigation of landscaped and other areas shall be voluntarily limited to:

  • Sundays and Thursdays for Retail Water Customers with an Even Numbered Address, and
  • Saturdays and Wednesdays for Retail Water Customers with an Odd Numbered Address.

Irrigation of landscaped areas is further voluntarily limited to between the hours of 8:00 p.m. on the designated watering day(s) and 6:00 a.m. on the following day(s). Retail Water Customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue Non-essential Water Uses.

Once the District is no longer in a drought contingency situation, HC290 will send out additional notification to residents. Please reach out to Inframark’s Customer Service department at (281) 579-4500, should you have any questions or concerns.

Here are some options for disposing of freeze-related debris:

  1. The Bagster

Please check with your homeowners insurance carrier regarding potential reimbursement for your debris.

Freeze Warning

Freezing temperatures possible Sunday thru Thursday. Protect pipes, people, and pets!

With upcoming weather expected to reach record lows, we want to remind everyone to take the time to inspect and insulate their household water lines.
