Surface Water Supply Project Timing

Design for the proposed Surface Water Supply Project, including the 39-mile water line and two large pump stations began in the spring of 2016. Construction is projected to begin in late-2018, and delivery of surface water to WHCRWA and NFBWA residents through this line is scheduled to begin in late-2021.

We are currently in the Design Phase of the project. During this time, you may see contractors conducting survey work, or they may need to access your property. Contractors will try to contact you before accessing your property. Construction is currently expected to start in late 2018, and will be done in phases. In other words, the waterline will be built one piece at a time. Construction schedules are NOT set, and your area will only be impacted for part of the construction phase. Your safety, ease of access, and well-marked detour information will be our priority throughout the life of the project.

ABOUT THE WHCRWA

The WHCRWA was established in 2001 to supply surface water to the western region of Harris County. The WHCRWA service area includes approximately 120 municipal water providers within the boundaries of the WHCRWA and seven located outside of the WHCRWA boundaries. As mandated by the Texas legislature, the WHCRWA has several objectives:
  • To acquire and provide a reliable supply of surface water
  • To conserve, preserve, protect, and recharge groundwater resources
  • To facilitate compliance with subsidence district requirements
  • To encourage water conservation

ABOUT THE NFBWA

The NFBWA was established in 2005 to supply surface water to the northern region of Fort Bend County. The NFBWA service area includes approximately 69 utility districts and two cities, Fulshear and Arcola. Although this project is directly sponsored by the WHCRWA, the NFBWA is funding approximately 45 percent of the total cost and is a beneficiary of the surface water to be provided by the Surface Water Supply Project.
