Update: Oyster Creek Dredging and Desilting Operations by Gulf Coast Water Authority

GCWA has moved one machine to the south end of the creek while the other machine is working along the creek parallel to Prairie Manor Dr. GCWA is still targeting the end of March 2017 to complete the dredging portion of the project. Spreading of the dried spoils material is scheduled to begin at the end of October / early November weather permitting. GCWA will begin spreading spoil material where the original dredging occurred (see updated progress map below).

Superior Public Water System Designation by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District NO. 146 (FBCMUD146) and its water utility operator, Environmental Development Partners (EDP), take great pride in providing District residents with quality drinking water through the operation of a reliable and compliant public water system as required by the State of Texas.  All Texas water supply systems are regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) which inspects and evaluates the construction and operation of public water systems.

TCEQ recognizes overall excellence in the operation of a public water system by designating a system as “Superior” if a system meets the stringent criteria set forth by the TCEQ.  To earn this designation, a system must meet and maintain a higher set of standards than are required of all public water systems. These standards, including excelled efforts in protecting public health, ensuring reliable operations and water supply for the system’s customers, compliance with regulatory requirements and environmental stewardship, are required to be deemed “Superior.”  In fact, at the end of 2015, only approximately 13% of community water systems in Texas had achieved a ”Superior” ranking, according to State records.

FBCMUD146 is proud to have earned this “Superior” designation beginning in 2015.  The District, through its operator, provides service to approximately 1900 homes, multi-family units and commercial properties within its boundaries.
