Important Update from City of Katy on February 19, 2021 at 10:30 a.m.
Currently, they have achieved operable water system pressure. This was the first requirement in restoring water distribution system. They can not emphasize enough how critical this community’s cooperation and patience was to accomplish this goal.
Now they will begin the necessary steps to disinfect and test the water quality. The first step will involve water system flushing. Their staff will be conducting fire hydrant flushing operations (opening/operating hydrants) throughout the city as soon as possible. Please note this operation may continue through the night. Once they have achieved appropriate levels of disinfection, the next step is to send the water samples out for an independent laboratory test. Pending the sample results, they hope to lift this boil water notice Monday, February 22, 2021.
