Notice of District Water System Flushing

As part of the District’s routine water system maintenance, fire hydrant flushing will be performed beginning Monday, January 17, 2022, through Friday, January 28, 2022. Flushing will not interrupt your water service; however, during the flushing, you may see discolored water and a drop in water pressure while crews are working in your area.

Fire hydrant flushing is performed to maintain system water quality by removing sediment from the system and is a necessary procedure to ensure the water system maintains the best possible water quality and adequate pressure and flow.

During flushing water may become discolored due to naturally occurring mineral sediment that is being removed from the system. While there are no health concerns associated with the discolored water, this sediment can cause permanent staining of clothing and some porous surfaces.

Discoloration of water may persist for a short time after the work is complete; however, this does not affect water quality and water will remain safe to drink. You can check your water before washing clothes, using your ice maker or filling your pool or spa. To check for discolored water, run water from a faucet that is closest to your water meter. If you see discolored water run your faucet until the water clears up.

The District will provide updates on where we are flushing in the District via the District email notification and text messaging system. If you have questions about this or other matters related to your water or sewer service, please contact the District’s water operator by phone at 832- 467-1599 or online at www.edpwater.com.

Wildflower Planting Program

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 146 (FBCMUD146) recently planted wildflower seeds along Oyster Creek at James Long Parkway. The project is a pilot program intended to enhance the natural beauty of the greenbelt while also reducing maintenance costs. The District’s vision is to expand the wildflower plantings in future years to include all portions of the Creek in our community.

Wildflowers are planted in the fall and typically begin to appear in early spring providing habitat for pollinators, beneficial insects, and wildlife. In addition to their colorful blooms and offering favorable conditions for native species, wildflowers enhance the surrounding landscape by preventing erosion, improving soil health and water quality, and reducing the impacts of drought. Once established, wildflowers also allow for reduced mowing frequencies, are less prone to disease, and require less water and fertilizer than turf grass and other common ground covers.

For more information about the Wildflower Planting Program, or general inquiries related to FBCMUD146 parks and common areas, please contact us through the District website at http://www.fbmud146.org/contact/ with questions or comments.
