City of Houston: Monday Update: Wastewater Treatment Plants

Sep 12, 2017 Back

HOUSTON - As of Monday, Sept. 11 at 6:00 p.m., the West District and Turkey Creek wastewater treatment plants in west Houston are operating at a very limited capacity.

These wastewater plants provide sanitary sewer service to zip codes: 77024, 77041, 77043, 77055, 77077, 77079, 77080, and 77094 (map below).

Houston Water also has four portable wastewater treatment tanks at Piping Rock, Rincon Drive, Gentryside Drive, and Briar Patch Drive to directly pump wastewater from the impacted neighborhoods into tanks for transportation to other wastewater treatment plants.

Although both wastewater treatment plants are back online, they are still not operating at full capacity. Businesses and residents in the impacted areas should continue to be mindful of activities that generate wastewater to help prevent sanitary sewer backups.

Updates will be posted to, #HOURecovers, and on Twitter @HoustonPWE.
