Fort Bend County Freshwater Supply District No. 1 (“FW1”) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas.  FW1 was created by an Order of the Commissioners Court of Fort Bend County, dated October 22, 1996, pursuant to the terms and provisions of Article XVI, Section 59 of the Texas Constitution and Chapters 49 and 53 of the Texas Water Code, as amended.

FW1 is empowered, among other things, to purchase, construct, operate and maintain all works, improvements, facilities and plants necessary for the supply and distribution of water.   FW1 is in the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston and is subject to the continuing supervision of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

District Water Service Update

Currently, FW1’s water distribution system is operating normally, and there have been no interruptions of service or reports of water pressure issues.  FW1 is not presently under a boil water notice. 

While the City of Houston (the “City”) has issued a boil water notice for its customers, FW1 does not receive water from the City.  Any notice concerning FW1’s water system will come directly from FW1 and its Operator, Environmental Development Partners.  For immediate up-to-date information, you may call the Operator’s 24-hour customer service line at 832-467-1599.
