Flushing of the District’s water lines will be performed beginning on Monday, February 6, 2023. The flushing may continue until Friday, February 10, 2023.
During these days, you may notice discoloring of the water due to mineral sediment that is being flushed out of the system. The sediment is made of naturally occurring minerals. This sediment can cause permanent staining of clothing and some porous surfaces.
Please check the water before washing clothes or filling your pool or spa.
This flushing is being conducted to perform routine maintenance of the District’s fire hydrants and water mains. We expect to complete the work in the timeframe mentioned above; however, discolored water may persist for a short time after the work is complete.
If you have questions about this or other issues related to your water or sewer service please call us at 832-467-1599 or visit our website at www.edpwater.com.
Thank you for your patience while this important work is being performed.
There is no boil water notice in effect for Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 residents or businesses. The City of Houston has issued a Boil Water Notice for their water system and other systems effected by the City’s issue. While local media (and social media) are reporting boil water notices for the City and those other Water Districts in our area, these notices do not pertain to Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 receivers, as the District maintains independent water production facilities. Again, Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District #185 is not currently under a Boil Water Notice.
In the event a Boil Water Notice needs to be issued for our community, notification will be provided. For immediate and up-to-date 24/7 information, you can always reach out to EDP’s 24-hour Customer Service line at (832) 467-1599.
