HOUSTON – Residents living in District E of Houston may soon see new fire hydrants.

City officials say a project to replace fire hydrants will take place over the next several weeks.

During the project, residents may see brief periods of water outages within their communities while the fire hydrants are being replaced. City officials say the outages are expected to be no longer than two to four hours.

During the project, there is a potential for water discoloration.

Residents living in District E will be notified by door hanger, or by an employee of the city’s Public Works and Engineering Department. Officials say the employees will be wearing either a City of Houston or Severn Trent uniform, as well as an identification badge.

The neighborhoods potentially affected are located in the Northwest part of Kingwood near the Montgomery County line. This area includes, but is not limited to: Kings Place, Lakewood Cove, Kingwood Lakes, Bear Branch, Mills Branch, Green Tree, Sand Creek, Fosters Mill, Kings Point, Kings Harbor, Magnolia Point (Huffman), Scotts Point, Lake Houston Marina and Fairlake Lane.

Contact City of Houston's 311 system by calling (713) 837-0311 in the event that your water outage is longer than two to four hours, is not in or near one of the above locations, or you experience discoloration. Should you need additional information, please contact the District E office at (832) 393-3008 or via email at districte@houstontx.gov.
