This is the latest on the Kingwood water issue. It’s an email Houston City Councilman David Martin shared with the Factor from the contractor hired to manage the water supply in Kingwood. In the letter the contractor says the water in the northeast Harris County Community has cleared up. They also say there are no health risks to residents and the water issue is in no way similar to that of Flint, Michigan as some have suggested.


The latest from our Contractor Severn Trent.

Subject: RE: Kingwood Water

The water was clear as of 8:00am the morning.

However,.. we were just informed minutes ago that another contractor has broken a major water line on west lake Houston… We have our staff already in route to arrive within moments. We are attempting to get in front of this and isolate the area quickly so prevent the spread of discolored water. I will contact you with more information as we receive it. Graham is in route to the location now to get all the facts and coordinate the effort.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact my cell as I will be heading to the location as well.

Kindest regards,

Jonathan Dawson
