OFFICIAL DOCUMENT HERE
This morning, December 3, 2021, Northgate Crossing Municipal Utility District No. 1 received confirmation that a follow-up test of its water well was negative for E. coli. Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the well has been cleared to be placed back in service.
E. COLI FOUND IN WATER SUPPLY
OFFICIAL DOCUMENT HERE
E. coli bacteria were found in the water supply on 11/30/2021. These bacteria can make you sick, and are particular concern for infants, young children and people with weakened immune systems.
What should I do? What does this mean?
Fecal indicators are microbes whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes. Microbes in these wastes can cause short-term health effects, health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.
The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice. People at increased risk should seek advice from their health care providers about drinking this water.
Corrective action being taken:
The sample that tested positive for E. coli was taken from the raw water sample point on the water well, before the water is treated with disinfectant. This sample is not indicative of water in the distribution system that supplies water to each customer, which was and continues to be properly treated. The affected water well has been taken out of service and thoroughly sanitized. It will remain out of service until retesting indicates the E. coli is no longer present.
At this time we anticipate resolving the problem within 48 hours.

NOTICE: YOU CAN HELP PREVENT FLOODING
Northgate Crossing MUD No. 1 (the “Water District”) has observed that tree limbs and other debris are being discarded into the drainage channel that runs along the back property line of many of the homes in the Water District. These drainage channels as well as the Levee are owned, operated and maintained by the Water District. When trash and debris are discarded into the drainage channels, storm water flows along the drainage channel are impeded which can result in downstream flooding. The Water District requests that everyone observe the proper procedure for discarding trash and debris, and refrain from discarding prohibited items in the drainage channels. Bear in mind that it costs the Water District to remove the trash and debris and restore the drainage channel to proper operational flows. It is the intent of the Water District to monitor the drainage channels, and in instances where debris is discarded into the drainage channels the party responsible for will be back charged the cost incurred by the Water District to clean the drainage channels. Let’s be good neighbors and keep our drainage channel freely flowing.
