DROUGHT-RELATED WATER RESTRICTIONS / WATER QUALITY ISSUES
Due to ongoing drought conditions, the North Harris County Regional Authority (NHCRWA) has initiated Stage 1 water conversation measures and has dramatically reduced the water supplied to Champions MUD. Champions MUD is utilitizing its groundwater wells to meet customer demands. Because of this switch to well water as our primary source, some customers are experiencing a slight sulfur odor or "rotten egg odor" in their water. While the water remains safe to drink, we are increasing chlorine levels to mitigate the odor issue.
Champions MUD has initiated Stage 1 of its Water Conservation Plan. Steps in Stage 1 include voluntary water conservation measures. The NHCRWA and Champions MUD may require mandatory use restrictions if conditions worsen. The following voluntary water use restrictions are in place:
Customers are encouraged to voluntarily limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Sundays and Thursdays for customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, or 8), and Saturdays and Wednesdays for water customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9), and to irrigate landscapes only between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on designated watering days.
Customers are urged to practice water conservation and minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.
Customers are asked to check for and promptly repair all leaks, dripping faucets, and running toilets.
Thank you for your cooperation - Customers of Champions MUD will be notified when these restrictions are no longer required or if conditions warrant additional conservation measures.
