Water restrictions in effect for Creekside Park area

Flood waters have damaged a water supply facility in the Timarron subdivision, resulting in water shortage conditions for residents who reside in the Harris-Montgomery Counties Municipal Utility District 386 area.

This includes Creekside Park and Carlton Woods at Creekside, where residents are restricted from using water for all outdoor purposes, including landscape irrigation use, pressure washing, car washing and aesthetic water use, according to The Woodlands Township. The current water supply is safe to drink.

Repairs are expected to be complete to the damaged facility in June, at which time full water service will be restored.

According to Montgomery County officials, the county received between 5 and 16 inches of rainfall between May 26-28, which is as much as one-third of the average annual rainfall amount in Conroe.

There were more than 400 high water rescues in the county during this time, and 150 roads were impassable. Approximately 200 homes had major damage or were destroyed, according to Montgomery County.

County Judge Craig Doyal signed a disaster declaration for the county on May 27, which now awaits action from the state government to move forward. Residents can submit a damage report online at www.mctxoem.org or call 936-523-3916.
