Temporary Disinfection Change Planned
Beginning on the 29th of September and lasting through the month of October, the City of Houston Southeast Water plant will be changing the disinfection process to improve the quality of the water serving La Porte area residents, including Shoreacres and Morgan’s Point.

The normal process using chlorine and ammonia will change to chlorine only. This is a standard process that is performed throughout the year, but usually last only 7 to 10 days. During this period some taste and odor changes may briefly occur, but there are no associated health risks. The City plans to flush certain areas of the system to maximize the effectiveness of the process and maintain water quality.

Owners of tropical fish aquariums should be aware of the change as well as residents using home dialysis machines. Dialysis patients affected may seek advice from their health care provider.

To report a problem with water quality, please contact La Porte Public Works at (281) 471-9650 or publicworks@laportetx.gov.
