Winter Storm Conditions

Attention Residents,

Services for Fort Bend County have been restored, for all Houston area sites, effective February 18, 2021.

As always, the safety of our residents, crews and equipment are our priority, and we look forward to providing your service. With services being suspended Monday-Wednesday, we are anticipating higher-than-normal volumes being placed out at the curb and expecting some delays.

In addition, the forecast is still forecasting cold, rainy conditions, but roads appear to be passable. We continue to monitor all conditions and may have later than normal rollouts of our crews Thursday, morning.

Our office and facilities remain closed due to the loss of power; Therefore, office staff, including customer service, will not be available.

GFL appreciates your patience as we work through this together and are committed to the safest collection, transportation, and disposal of your solid waste and processing of your recyclables.

Boil Water Notice for Community Public Water Systems

Due to reduced system pressure, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Fort Bend Municipal Utility District 194 ID# 0790543 public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions).

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Environmental Development Partners at 832-467-1599. This problem was caused by the unprecedented winter storm. Once conditions return to normal, we will post the appropriate notice.
