North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) began construction of a reclaimed water distribution system within Fort Bend Municipal Utility District No. 146 on March 1st, 2021. The project is currently under construction in our District and is expected to be complete in December 2021. The project includes the installation of underground pipelines throughout the District to provide reclaimed water for irrigation of our District green spaces and for filling our amenity lakes. The reclaimed water system will reduce the District potable water demand by approximately 260,000 gallons per day. In addition to reducing the District’s demand for potable drinking water, the reclaimed water will be provided at a reduced cost and will benefit the region by reducing our dependence on ground water.
The project is currently in the 3rd phase of construction, which includes areas along Winston Ranch Parkway, Prairie Manor Drive, James long Parkway, Delta Lake, and Mason Road. Construction impact is expected to be minimal as most pipelines are routed through existing District rights-of-way. Pipes are installed using directional drilling methods to minimize disruption of roadways and utilities and reduce impact to sidewalks, landscaping and our green spaces.
