Hurricane Harvey

On behalf of the North Fort Bend Water Authority’s (the “NFBWA”) Board of Directors, our thoughts are with all who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.  While we have seen untold devastation, we have also seen true acts of heroism and compassion.  We are proud to call you our neighbors and friends.

Please rest assured that the surface water provided to your municipal utility district (“MUD”) from the NFBWA continues to meet all necessary drinking water requirements.  The NFBWA will continue to routinely monitor its water supply to ensure it meets all regulatory requirements.  If for any reason there is a problem with the water,your MUD will be immediately notified and all appropriate steps will be taken.

Please stay safe.

About the North Fort Bend Water Authority

Established by the Texas Legislature in May 2005, the North Fort Bend Water Authority was created to assist in converting the region within its boundaries from using groundwater to predominantly surface water in order to combat subsidence. The Authority acquires, develops and delivers a long-term supply of potable surface water to users in our fast-growing area.

What Is Subsidence?

Subsidence is the gradual sinking in of an area, and occurs when water is drawn from the ground faster than it can be replenished. Entire communities have been destroyed by flooding due to subsidence. The solution is to find alternative water, such as surface water. The surface water that the Authority currently uses or plans to use in the future mostly comes from the Trinity River.
