City Water is Safe to drink!

The City of Houston's potable  water system was not affected by the recent flooding event. The water is safe to drink. The facility in question, the Meyerland groundwater plant located at 9020 S Rice Ave. was surrounded by flooded streets after the heavy rain event on May 25th. However, after the flood water receded, a thorough inspection of the plant on May 26th showed no evidence of any damage to the plant and it is fully functional.

Despite significant flooding throughout the City of Houston, the City of Houston water treatment plants are fully operational, and water quality within the City owned and operated public systems has not been affected.
