Residents of Fort Bend Municipal Utility District 142 (FBMUD 142) may have woken up this morning to an alert that the Brazosport Water Authority (BWA) was issuing a “Do Not Use” alert for various communities that they service, or who purchase water from the BWA, due to a brain-eating amoeba.
KHOU posted an article and updated it this morning; you can view it here.
The FBMUD 142 water does not come from the BWA. It is purchased through an agreement with the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA).
As of right now, the water provided by the NFBWA to FBMUD 142 and delivered to the residents of our District is safe to drink and use. Our operator, Environmental Development Partners, continuously tests District water for contaminants, and to ensure that it complies with all Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) governmental standards.
If you have any further questions regarding the water quality in FBMUD 142, please check out the Water Quality Report/Consumer Confidence Report, and feel free to reach out to us via the ‘Contact Us’ form on the District website.
